Once you've found your perfect place in Berlin, you'll need to arrange the transportation of your household goods. There are two options as far as the size of the shipping container goes. A 20-foot container should hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, or if you wish to bring a vehicle also, a 40-foot container option is available. A 40-foot container should also accommodate the goods inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house. Which ever you end up choosing, your move to Berlin is sure to be smooth sailing.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
