If you are planning on international moving from the U.S to Germany, whether to Berlin, Hamburg or Cologne, Neighborhood Parcel Movers has the expertise and the local knowledge to tailor the international move to your specific needs and budget. Whether you are looking for more business opportunities, want to live in Europe or in a small, relaxed German city, relocating to Germany would definitely be the right choice for you. Germany has always been a popular expat destination, and can not only boast a strong economy, but a rich cultural and historical heritage. Germany is a multicultural and heterogeneous European country, with the third largest number of migrants in the world, where you will certainly be able to find a lifestyle that fits you, and where you’ll enjoy a modern infrastructure and a high quality of life.
Moving To Germany
So you’re preparing to pack and move to Germany from the U.S? There are a number of matters to consider. This is a short list of some of the important things to keep in mind: You can probably bring in your household goods and car free of duty and taxes if you plan to stay there awhile. But be warned that U.S cars must often be modified to meet German standards in such things as headlights, emissions, brakes, rust and tires.
German electrical grid voltage is 220-240 volts, double the 110 volts in the USA and Canada. Plugging many 110-volt devices into that current can destroy them. Fortunately, North Americans will be discouraged from making this mistake because of the wall plug. The prongs on the German ones are round instead of flat, so theirs won’t go into a German electric outlet.
