Moving to Germany

Moving is a stressful activity for each person who has decided to another city or country; the most important thing is to decide what you will take with you. Ask to yourself before you pack:
  • What do you need?
  • What can you buy there?
Before enjoying your new home, it is inevitable to go through the laborious process of moving out. Think that each space into the moving truck has a cost for you and do not need to carry a lot of things that no longer serve. Before you start packing, you must be clear about what can and what you cannot take with you. Plan in advance with the movers; if you don’t do that, you may have problems.

Moving implies a new beginning in your life; so, you should think about these changes and make sure that none of them affect you in a negative way. Keep in mind that you will have to get a new job but there are many ways to find jobs vacancies in your new destination; for example, you can check the employment section of the local newspapers, the classified advices in the internet and the announcements in TV or local radio.

Moving Companies
If you are thinking of using a moving company, please note that prices and services vary greatly from one to another. It is important to know what you need when choosing a mover.

Moving companies typically calculate their prices based on:
  • Quantity to be transported.
  • Distance of travel.
  • Type of furniture.
  • Number of people that are needed to make the move.
If some things are broken or damaged, they should be discarded in the trash. Whenever things are in good condition, it is best to donate them. Currently, they often sell the most varied objects through Internet sites that specialize in these kinds of transactions.

These tips will help you to move into your new home with fewer problems. These steps can prevent unexpected complications and decrease stress. Most importantly, do not forget to enjoy and have fun in the transfer to your new home.
  • Moving out involves many details. From packaging to transportation, each step requires you to be careful. Make a list of what you need to do.
  • Ask for help to your family members in the moving process; especially in packaging and labeling. If no relative or friend is available to help you, you should hire help,
  • Make an inventory of all things that should be moved. Label all your boxes. Sell, give away or donate what you don’t need.
  • Make a contract with the mover that best meets your needs. Evaluate each company; ask for references and check them.
  • Make an emergency kit that contains the following:
    • Toilet paper.
    • Cutters to open the boxes and permanent ink markers.
    • Water or an invigorating drink and food (enough for a family, including pets.)
    • A first aid kit, bandages, ice packs and analgesics, and any other necessary medications.
    • Hammer, nails, pliers, screwdrivers and a flashlight.
  • If you have pets, purchase a cage that also serves to transport them.
