We have summarised the most frequently asked questions about the move for you.
Das sind die Antworten zu den häufig gestellten Fragen.
How much does a move cost?
It is difficult to give a general estimate of the cost of a move. In the end, factors such as the number or weight of the furnishings to be transported, the distance and the time of year play a role. Additional services or the transport of special goods also change the price of a move.
Can moving expenses be claimed as tax expenses?
If the move is due to a new professional challenge, parts of the moving costs can be deducted as income-related expenses in Germany. However, the move must be subject to certain conditions - you can get more detailed information on this from a tax advisor. What you should do in any case: Keep all receipts!
What do I need to consider before deciding on a removal company?
Price alone does not make a good moving company. Because a move is always a matter of trust. After all, your home and your private belongings are at stake. Therefore, be sure to look for renowned seals of approval such as those of the TÜV. There are also significant differences when it comes to service. Many removal companies do not have a personal contact person or the service staff are difficult to reach. You can find out how good the service is from the very first contact: The more precisely the mover assesses the size of your household, for example with a personal on-site inspection or an online video inspection, the more reliable the calculated costs and the service.
How are the moving costs calculated?
In summary, the most important factors that are used to calculate the cost of a move are the distance between the old and new home and the size of the move - i.e. how large the household is and how much weight the furniture weighs. Extra services such as packing the furniture or dismantling and assembling the furniture are charged separately. Basically, you can rely 100% on the price we have calculated for you!
