Shipping Container Costs to Germany

Shipping your worldly belongings to Germany doesn’t have to be a big deal. With the choice of Berlin or Hamburg as main hubs, you can get your belongings shipped to Germany with little hassle involved.

Regardless of whether you’ll be residing in Hamburg, Berlin or heading further afield, MoveHub will help you find the right shipping company to make it happen.

Different shipping options to Germany

As part of mainland Europe, there are several options for shipping your items over to Germany. You can take advantage of the Eurotunnel by sending things overland, or go for the quicker, but more expensive option of air transport.

Alternatively, you can choose to send your personal effects by sea, which usually takes under a week and is very cost effective and convenient, as international shipping includes door-to-door delivery as standard. This means that even if you’re moving further inland than Hamburg or Berlin to places like Munich or Frankfurt, your stuff can still be brought direct to your door.


Bringing items into Germany

Despite Germany being part of an agreement with other EU countries that offers the freedom of movement of goods for personal belongings, there are still restrictions applied to certain items. There’s a list of general items below, but for more details you can also visit the German Customs website.
