Schepens Can Help With Removals UK to Germany

The widespread coverage of Brexit may be making us tear our hair out in the UK, but it’s also acquainted us with our European neighbours in an entirely new way. Since the 2016 referendum a number of Brits have started thinking about moving to Europe. Top of the list of countries to move to is Germany. This may be because of its attractive average salary (£33,000 for only 26 hours per week) and also the career opportunities it offers in science, engineering and IT.

Top 4 Cities for Expats in Germany

Apart from the financial considerations, Germany is a large country with any number of attractive cities to move to. Here’s our choice of the top 4:

1. Berlin

The capital city of Germany has a unique and fascinating history, which contributes hugely to its contemporary energy and identity. It’s home to nearly 4 million people, including a large number of expats from Turkey, the US, the UK and Italy. It’s been named ‘the start-up capital of Europe’, so if you’re an entrepreneur this is a highly attractive destination.

2. Munich

This is a large, prosperous German city that delivers all the benefits of a small close-knit community. It’s close to the Alps, has a plentiful supply of urban green spaces and an extensive cultural offering. Each year the city hosts ‘Oktoberfest’, a world famous beer festival. It’s a pretty expensive place to live, but there’s a reassuring low level of crime and vandalism.

3. Leipzig

This eastern German city is hugely popular as a low budget destination with a lively art scene. It’s now home to both BMW and Porsche auto plants which is growing the city, transforming the culture and increasing the spending power of local citizens. It’s also Germany’s music capital, boasting close connections with Bach, Wagner and Mendelssohn.

4. Frankfurt

Located in the centre of Germany, this is the country’s smaller cities but it’s a financial big hitter. Known as an ‘alpha city’, it’s a primary node in the global economic network and home to the German Stock Exchange. Unsurprisingly this is the richest city in Germany, and one of the most expensive to live in. There’s a work hard, play hard culture – and some of the best nightclubs in the country.

Schepens Removals to Germany

For over 100 years now Schepens has been moving UK expats to towns and cities across Germany. We ship regularly to this amazing country, and we know the culture well. When we first talk to clients about removals to Germany they tend to be anxious about the logistics, and have loads of questions about the process. For this reason we allocate a dedicated Move Co-ordinator to every client. They’re there to share the planning, and minimise the stresses.

Tailored Removals UK to Germany

No two moves are the same, so no two removals packages should be either. Instead of offering a standard service, we ask clients what their needs are so we can create a tailored package to reflect them. The services we offer include:

  • Packing. Our BAR trained professional packers can pack up your home, label your boxes and create a detailed inventory to your shipped goods.
  • Insurance. All your goods are insured during shipping. Should you want additional policies such as Accidental Damage or Extended Liability, we’ll be happy to arrange cover.
  • Non-Standard Goods. If you’re thinking of moving musical instruments, fine art, or valuable antiques, you may be interested in our bespoke packaging service.
  • Self Storage. Should you need to store goods or furniture locally, Schepens can help. We provide a door-to-door service, secure facilities, and a climate controlled environment.
  • 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.
