Moving to DK (with a small amount of stuff)... Any tips?

Hello,

I'm moving to Copenhagen in a month, and wondering if anyone might have some good ideas about how to move my stuff up there..

I only have a small amount of stuff to move, as I'm leaving most of my furniture in CH. Unfortunately there's too much to bring along with me in an aeroplane... (I don't have a car either)
I only have about 2-3 square metres of stuff, but some of it is bulky, for ex. musical instruments, my bike!, paintings, ..as well as the usual books, clothes, maybe small pieces of furniture etc.

Are there moving companies who also move small amounts? Or any other good ideas?

Cheers!

Hi,

You could rent a van one-way and drive it yourself.

Cheers,
Nick

How about additional cargo?
Some companies and private persons put some small amounts across to other countries.
It's not easy in Switzerland, but Germans do this a lot.
I had the same problems CH -> GB. But probably you'll find someone.

@Nick: Not everyone has a driver's license.

Re: Moving to DK (with a small amount of stuff)... Any tips?

Welcome to my homeland, Denmark (I am from Copenhagen) and good luck with the move.

Please note the custom regulations for Denmark, I found a short list here that might help you.

http://www.movers.com/international_...s/denmark.html

I can also recommend you to visit the homepage of Skat.dk (for the taxation etc. of Denmark).
http://www.skat.dk/SKAT.aspx?oId=1812700&vId=0

I would also consider the advice of contact international movers for a quote for the small amount of stuff you have. They might offer you a cheaper price with a mixed cargo option (if time is not of the essence). For the mixed cargo option, it could be a tip to contact DHL, TNT and ask what they take for such a transport.

I googled and found this company which might help (don't know it though)
http://www.international-movers.dk/

Good luck!

Yes,
Try to sell as much thing as you can...
a book: heavy, costly to bring.

Although if you sell, you get some money, don't pay for moving it, and can buy other ones...

Same goes for the bike, etc...

Hi.
I've send you a PM. I'm moving back to Denmark in 2 months time. Maybe we can work something out :-)

I shipped 4 pallets from Bremen to Copenhagen 10 years ago, with All my household items, with a freight company. That cost 1000 german marks + vat. I guess, you would look at EUR 1500 today from Ch.

1500euros:
New bike -400euros
New lot of clothes: -400euros
New books (or same books second hand): -150 euros
Money from reselling the old stuffs: +300euros (including bike, etc).
= 850 euros left.

"There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's mastercard"
(oh and you would not have to bother with moving hassle).

Yes, yes sentimental value...You really care so much about old books you can re-get somewhere else?
