Business Removals to Germany
A record number of UK businesses are currently taking advantage of the world’s 4th largest economy by moving their centre of operations there. The Germany Trade & Invest Agency (GTAI) reported a 20% rise in British business migration to Germany in 2017, and predicted that those figures were set to rise further in 2018. It’s easy to see the attraction; Germany has steady GDP growth, a highly rated workforce, and the largest consumer market in Europe.

Schepens Can Help With Your Business Removals
Relocating your business is a complex process, especially if you are planning to move staff members to a new base in Germany. Major change of this nature can be extremely stressful for everyone involved, no matter how positive the shift of axis is. Schepens has been managing business moves to Germany for over 100 years now. We understand the complexities of the process and our aim is always to reduce the attendant anxieties.
Whether your business is large or small, we have experience in facilitating the logistics involved in moving your business abroad. We regularly ship to locations across Germany, and our removals teams know the country well. We will immediately allocate a dedicated Business Move Co-ordinator who will work closely with your project management team to manage every step of the process.
Planning for Business Removals to Germany
We understand that the needs and requirements of your business and employees will be unique, which is why it’s a good idea to get your removals partner on board as early as possible. Your Move Co-ordinator will begin by scoping the removals services required, in order to create a detailed quotation which accurately represents your situation.
We provide a range of European removals services, which include:
Packing – one of the most important elements of your move will be deciding what’s being moved and what will be stored, or discarded. Our BAR trained professional packers can work with departmental managers to pack, provide detailed labelling on boxes, and create an accurate inventory.
Furniture – if you decide to ship your office furniture to your new location, we can facilitate its dismantling and reassembly, as a means of ensuring a seamless transition from one work environment to another.
Storage – you may decide that it benefits your business to archive furniture, stock or paper files in a secure storage facility in the UK. Schepens provides local, managed storage facilities that are used for business archival. We can arrange for your business materials to be packed, transported and stored securely.
Security – the GDPR requires that Personally Identifiable Information (relating to either employees or customers) is kept secure at all times. Schepens removals teams have been trained to understand and support this regulation in their work. We will, therefore, manage the security of personal data in your behalf during shipping.
Insurance – Schepens provides default insurance for all your goods in transit. It’s likely, however, that you will want additional cover for your business removals. Your Move Co-ordinator can discuss this with you, and manage the cover you require.
Relocation – moving your employees abroad needs to be planned carefully, and managed sensitively. Schepens has extensive experience in moving families to European destinations, and we can provide tailored services designed to minimise the stress this process can create.
Removals Vehicles – Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which maintain a constant temperature and humidity, run on air ride suspension and boast an adjustable bearing system, which ensures little or no movement of vehicle content.
Creating Continuity for Business Removals to Germany
No business move is without risk, but at Schepens we have managed to minimise the risks by recognising where problems could occur, and working proactively to mitigate them. We achieve this by creating:
- Risk Assessment Documentation – recognising the risks faced by the business as a result of a poorly managed removals process.
- Risk Mitigation Planning – putting in place a range of procedures that will minimise the range of risks to which the business will be exposed during the move to Germany.
- Risk Management Documentation – created with business stakeholders and used by Schepens to manage every stage of the removals.
