FAQ - Häufige Fragen zum internationalen Umzug

Die Frage nach den Kosten für einen internationalen Umzug lässt sich nicht pauschal beantworten. Bei der Preisermittlung kommt es zum einen immer drauf an wo das Ursprungsland und wo das Zielland liegt. Weitere Parameter wie das Umzugsvolumen und Transportbesonderheiten wirken sich außerdem auf die Kosten aus. Prinzipiell sind Luftfracht-Sendungen deutlich kostspieliger als Seefrachtsendungen - das Umzugsgut trifft dafür auch schneller am Zielort ein. Einen ersten Preis für Ihren internationalen Umzug können Sie ganz einfach online über unseren Preisrechner erhalten.

In der Regel dauert ein Umzug via Seefracht etwa 6 Wochen. Je nach Hafenverbindung und Aufkommen kann es hier aber zu deutlichen Abweichungen kommen. Besondere Zeiten wie während der Corona-Pandemie oder der Suezkanal-Blockade können den Seefracht-Markt außerdem sehr durcheinander bringen, was zu deutlich längeren Transportzeiten führen kann. Eine konkrete Antwort auf diese Frage können wir Ihnen aber gerne auf Anfrage explizit für Ihre Verbindung mitteilen. Bei der Luftfracht geht der Transport deutlich schneller, hier sind wir bei etwa zwei Wochen im Mittel. Wobei natürlich auch hier ausschlaggebend ist, welcher Flughafen angesteuert wird.

Anders als im nationalen Verkehr ist es bei Überseeumzügen nicht ratsam, sein Hab und Gut selbst zu verpacken. Gründe hierfür sind, dass die professionellen Umzugs-Teams ohnehin alle Kartons öffnen und auf Verpackungsqualität als auch auf verbotene Gegenstände kontrollieren müssen. Weiterhin gibt es hier das Thema der Versicherung, da bei von dem Umziehenden selbst gepackten Kartons keine Versicherung greift (im Schadensfall). Wie Sie dennoch Ihren interkontinentalen Umzug bestmöglich selbst vorbereiten können, erfahren Sie gerne bei uns.
