Planning to relocate to Germany?

Where Craftmanship and Creativity Flourish

Services provided when immigrating to Germany

Are you contemplating relocating to Germany or planning to move to Berlin? Discover the best way to move professionally and affordably across Europe with our international moving services at Alfa. We specialise in providing efficient solutions such as combined transports, where your household goods are efficiently transported with other families belongings, reducing the environmental impact of your move. When you are immigrating to Germany, count on us to provide a personalised and reliable moving experience.

When planning to move, our advice is to reach out to us at least 6 weeks before your expected move date. This time frame allows us to engage in thorough planning and preparations to ensure a smooth transition. Typical transit times for moves within Europe from the Nordics range from approximately 5 to 10 days door-to-door. Should you require additional time between loading and delivery, we offer the option to store your goods during transit.

Navigating customs procedures when shipping household goods to Germany

When moving to Germany from within the EU, there are generally no customs formalities required for used household goods and personal effects. However, if you are moving from outside the EU, our experienced team will guide you through the customs procedures, ensuring a hassle-free process for your international move. 

You can also find detailed customs information on importing household goods from this link as provided by the FIDI association, the largest global alliance of international moving and relocation companies.

To provide you with the most accurate cost estimate for your move, we'll arrange a pre-move survey. During this survey, we will estimate the volume of your belongings, assess the accessibility of your home, and identify any delicate items that might require special handling or packing materials.
