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.
