    Moving to or from Germany

    As an international moving company with more than 50 years’ experience in the relocation industry, GAC will assist you with your move to or from Germany to ensure that you are relieved from the stressors that are often accompanied with such a major transition.

    Moving to Germany

    As one of the biggest international movers in the industry, GAC holds FIDI-accreditation. This gives us a unique edge as we lend our professional services to clients looking to move to Germany. Understanding the customs regulations for relocating to any country can be a daunting task, but we allocate an experienced moving coordinator to each of our clients to assist with the relocation. FIDI has a helpful customs guide for moving to Germany, of which we highlight a few notable points below.

    If you are moving to Germany and plan to take private vehicles with you, you will be required to submit a copy of ownership, as well as a copy of the last registration in a foreign country for a minimum of six months before you intend to ship the vehicle to Germany.  

    If you plan to take animals along with you, it is worth mentioning that you will be restricted to a maximum of five animals. Germany also has a law on the restriction on the introduction or importing of fighting dogs which is to be respected. This includes pit-bull terriers and bull terriers, to name a few.

    Relocating is always a lot easier when you are prepared. It's a good idea to visit your local German embassy or consulate to familiarise yourself with which documents you will need to start the journey. Creating checklists and having a set budget are other ways to eliminate stress. These are just some helpful tips to prepare for your move.
