Moving From The USA to Germany And Back
Moving to Germany is not only exciting-it’s stressful. International relocation requires plenty research and thorough planning-not to mention professional and skilled overseas shippers to ensure your goods arrive safely in your new country. If you are planning a move to Germany, let International Sea & Air Shipping assist you with every aspect of your relocation to ensure it is seamless and hassle-free.
How International Sea & Air Shipping can help for moving to Germany
At International Sea & Air Shipping, we specialize in household shipping, including shipping personal effects and household goods, packing services and export crating, and internationally shipping cars and boats. Whether you’re leaving the United States for Germany or from Germany to the United State, you can count on us to handle everything smoothly and professionally, from beginning to end.
When planning your move to Germany, you’re likely to encounter an over whelming number of options. In such a competitive industry, it’s hard to differentiate one relocation company from another. When making your shortlist, check that the company is registered with an industry body, such as the FMC Federal Maritime Commission or IAM International Association of Movers. You should also consider any personal recommendations and online testimonials. Once you’re down to a few options, speak personally to each company on the phone and ask the key questions about your move, such as what happens if something goes wrong, if an itemized quote can be provided and who your point of contact will be. If you’re not happy with the answers, choose another company.
Another important question is whether you should hire an international relocation company. This question largely depends on how much time you have and costs, as international moving companies typically take care of any potential issue that may arise which is ideal for time-strapped expats – but maybe not for tight budgets. How, then, do you decide which is the best international moving company and relocation option for you?
At International Sea & Air Shipping, we use our knowledge and experience to help you relocate across the globe with ease. As a international moving company, we staff our team with licensed, bonded, insured and trained moving professionals and can ensure your move to Germany is as smooth as can be, from door-to-door.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship Household Goods?

“We were going to use a different company (Mohawk Moving) but then, a few weeks before the move, they suddenly increased the price by over 14%, so I called Hillary and she jumped on our situation and offered a reasonable estimate with all detailed charges, so I knew what to expect. ACE Moving in the Twin Cities was awesome, they used every bit of space in our 20 ft. container and wrapped our furniture to protect it. We had two pick up locations and they managed that perfectly. COSCO put the sea-can on a vessel between NYC and Bremerhaven. Also Carl Hartmann GmbH in Bremerhaven was efficient when we had a few hick ups with German customs and the container arrived on time 48 days later in the Frankfurt area. Christ Movers were awesome unloading everything. Very happy with the service from all involved.”
