Germany is a popular relocation destination for many Indians, thanks to its strong economy and appealing cultural legacy. It’s one of the strongest nations in all of Europe, and the good news is that the country’s policy for migration is also one of the most friendly around.
Though you will need a visa to move, live, and work in Germany, you can easily apply for one and get accept rather quickly. And when it comes to your actual international move, A-1 Auto Transport and be your trusted advisor!
What Are the Logistics?
Moving long-distance is a bit different than moving to another city in the same country, as you have to deal with your destination country’s customs process.
Thankfully, Germany offers tax breaks on household goods imported in the country for relocation purposes for Indian citizens. But all packages will be subjected to inspection, and to make sure they enter the country without problems, you will need to provide:
- Copy of your passport, visa, and work permit;
- An inventory of everything you are importing;
- A signed declaration in which you state all the goods you are bringing in are for personal use and not to be sold;
- Receipts, bills, and other documents to prove you own the items;
- Vehicle documentation, such as registration and proof of insurance.
Our international movers can help you gather all the necessary paperwork to ensure your shipment enters Germany with no troubles!
How Much Will It Cost?
Shipping from India to Germany is what’s known as long-distance shipping, and you may worry that this sort of service will end up being very expensive.
And there is some truth to that, but the cost of shipping your vehicle and household items doesn’t even come close to the final cost of buying new items from Germany.
As for how much it will ultimately cost, it depends on:
- Time of the year you are shipping
- The shipping route
- The extra services you opt for (such as packing, door-to-door delivery, etc.)
- How accessible the destination is, etc.
- Size and weight of the cargo
