Movers France To Germany

International Movers France To Germany

While still completely autonomous countries, Germany and France do share a special relationship as members of the EU. As citizens of these countries, you enjoy benefits such as free travel and movement throughout the European Union, as well as substantially eased restrictions for relocations and attending school.

If you are moving to Germany from France, you probably have a lot of questions. Can you bring your vehicle? What are the rules? What does it cost? Will you need to pay customs duty and taxes at the border? This guide is intended to provide you with the basics.

Cost to Move from France to Germany

Moving from France to Germany is usually done by over land by shipping container, carried over Europe’s impressive railway system. On average, moving a full-container load over land from France to Germany will cost between €2,500 – €3,400 and arrive in 2-4 days. Half-container loads are usually a few hundred less. With sea transport, the expense will be much more, and the trip will take more than 3 weeks.

Importing Household Goods to Germany

As a citizen of France, an EU member country, you don’t need a residence permit to move to Germany. In addition, your goods can be freely imported without a need for customs declaration or taxes. You must register with the local police, or Bürgeramt. You will also need to visit your local residency office within one to two weeks of your arrival. You will then receive your official certificate of registration (Meldebestätigung).

In order to obtain your certificate of registration, you must present the following documents:

  • Valid EU passport or national identity card
  • A completed registration form (Anmeldeformular)
  • A copy of the lease or rental agreement (Mietvertrag) as proof of your accommodations in Germany

Even within the EU, the laws governing imports and immigration are subject to change. If you choose not to work with an overseas moving company, you should reach out to your local German embassy to get the most current guidance. Your best option will be to work with an overseas moving company. Three Men and a Truck have the expertise and experience you need for a seamless move.

Importing a Vehicle to Germany

Importing a vehicle to Germany from France can be as simple as driving it across the border, at least in the short term. No taxes or special paperwork are needed, but if you plan to stay in the country for longer than six months you must register your vehicle in Germany.
