Ireland is famous for its pristine emerald landscapes, cheerful pub culture, and colorful people. It’s no wonder so many foreigners want to relocate to Ireland. But getting there can be a bit of a hassle, especially if you have to cross several countries to your destination.
Moving from Germany to Ireland seems to make sense for a lot of German citizens, who are seeking a more relaxed lifestyle, a great place of culture, and a shared love for beer. Choosing an expert international removal service helps a lot in starting off on the right foot when moving to Ireland.
Methods of Shipping Goods Internationally
The cost and duration of a shipment from Germany to Ireland depend on the urgency of the shipment and method of transportation.
Ideally, you should contact moving companies at least 3 months before moving. This way, you will have priority when shipping freight containers are loaded, and you won’t have to pay extra fees for special transportation. Early booking for land or sea transportation is your most affordable option.
Here are the main shipping options you have:
- Pallet shipping, fit for your move if you only have a few boxes;
- LTL (less than truckload;)
- FTL (full truckload;)
- PTL (groupage;)
- Van delivery, with a van transporting your goods exclusively.
Right to Live, Work, and Study in Ireland
If you plan on moving from Germany, then it's important to know that you have the right to freely live, study, or work in Ireland, but there are certain conditions that must be met. Check an integration guide and the local immigration authorities to get a clear idea of what bureaucratic tasks you have. If you want to simplify the process, you can hire a specialized firm that can deal with the bureaucratic process on your behalf.
The Costs of Living in Ireland
Since the past years have seen an increase in the cost of living in Ireland, especially in Dublin, any savings matter when you move and start your life from scratch, more or less. Moving costs can be significant, as the distance between Germany and Ireland is nothing to be ignored. Choose an experienced company that regularly handles international shipments and you have the best chance of saving money.
