If you are a British citizen planning on relocating to Germany, you’re probably unsure how this process will be affected by recent developments in the global context, like Brexit or the coronavirus pandemic. While the relocation process might be a bit delayed by these circumstances, planning ahead and researching thoroughly will make your transition smoother.

Brexit and Relocating to Germany

For British immigrants to the EU, it’s important to know the stipulations in the Withdrawal Agreement. This list of regulations is meant to ease the transition for both Brits who are moving to Germany, and for those who plan on returning to the UK.

The most important thing to remember is that until December 2020, the Withdrawal Agreement allows Brits to establish themselves in Germany as easily as they did when the UK was part of the EU.

Getting Your Things in Germany from the UK

Your belongings can be transported from the UK to any point in Germany by:

  • Sea freight
  • Air freight
  • Land transportation

You can also opt for a combination of more methods, depending on what the starting and ending points are. Distance is one of the many factors that can influence the costs and duration of transport, so make sure you collect several quotes from transportation companies, so you have enough options.

Best International Relocation Services

Registering in Germany

After your arrival in Germany, you have 14 days to register (“Anmeldung”) at the Residence Registration Office. More details about what documentation you need and what the eligibility criteria are can be found here.

The good part of hiring a professional moving expert is that you can get qualified advice on what documentation you need for the belongings you'll be moving from the UK to Germany. To make sure this step of the process goes smoothly, hire a reputable international moving company and try to plan the logistics as early as possible. A professional mover will help you make sense of the bureaucratic jargon and prepare the list of documents you need to move to Germany legally.

Getting Your Car from the UK to Germany

You can import your vehicle in Germany without paying the 10% import duty and the 19% added tax as long as you prove that you intend to change your residency to Germany and you are giving up your main residency in a different country.

Here is more information about importing vehicles from the UK to Germany. As for the transport itself, A-1 Auto Transport has the best solutions for shipping vehicles internationally, as it was one of the first services we have provided when founded.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
