Moving to Germany
Are you moving to Germany from the UK? Britannia Ryansmove can help with an international removals service that covers every part of your move. We have extensive experience in helping our customers in North West London move overseas to Germany, Europe and the rest of the world. We work with trusted international partners to make your move a success, working to your timeframe and unique requirements.
We start our Germany removals service with a pre-move survey. During the survey, we’ll determine how much you have to move, what packing materials will be required, and how you want your items to be shipped.
This allows us to be prepared as possible for moving day and also gives us the chance to discuss any extra moving services you might need. For example, we can provide a professional packing service for your belongings, so you’ll know your items will arrive in Germany safely.
We can also provide long-term storage in our secure storage facility for any items you want to keep but don’t want to take with you to Germany. We can deliver a storage container to your home, let you pack it or help pack it with a professional service, seal it and take it to our storage warehouse where it will be kept safe and sound until you return.

Shipping to Germany
Britannia Ryansmove offers two types of shipping methods to get your belongings to Germany. We’ll work with you to find the method most suitable for your timeframe and budget.
Sea freight is our most popular shipping method. It is often the most cost-effective way of shipping your belongings to Germany. It can take around two to five days to transport your items to Germany by sea and so is the slower method. However, we’ll work to ensure your items are transported in good time to keep to your required schedule.
Air freight is the quickest method of shipping your items to Germany, usually taking around a day or two. However, it is also usually much more expensive. It can be a good solution if you are working to a short timeframe and/or you are transporting a small number of items.

Germany Customs and Imports
Britannia Ryansmove can assist with all the paperwork needed to get your personal belongings through German customs. This will include a detailed inventory of what’s being transported in your shipping container as well as import declarations. Household goods that you ship to Germany need to have been owned and used for at least six months prior to your move, and any items that are newer than this will require a duty and tax to be paid. You will need to transport your belongings within 12 months of you moving.
It’s prohibited to transport certain plant and animal products to Germany, such as potatoes, vines and products from protected species. It is also prohibited to ship unconstitutional and harmful media, particularly those that are deemed harmful to minors.
