Moving to north Germany from Basel

Hi all,

In three weeks time I will be leaving Switzerland and transferring to Germany for a new Job.

I want to move some things that I have acquired bits of furniture etc as well as all of our cloths. I know that there will be customers clearance going into Germany but can anybody give me a rough idea on what sort of costs are associated with this and if any one used a good company to help them move stuff that they could recommend I would be extremely grateful.

As an idea of things to move the usual: 2beds with cabinets, sofa, tv etc, Iím sure you know the score.

Thank you for your help.

Pack your stuff, and number the boxes. Then make an inventory of what is in each box (rough description, clothes, DVDs, books etc) plus the bed, the cupboard etc.

Make about 5 photocopies, and drive to Germany over a busy crossing, you won't normally be stopped, and you won't normally pay any MWSt as these are your belongings. In the very worst case you will need a Spediteur to complete a form for the customs.

Take copies of your Swiss Abmeldung, old and new work contracts, rental agreements etc, receipts etc, to prove you are moving home.
