Moving from Düsseldorf to Manchester

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have recommendations for moving companies if we want to move from Germany to the UK?
Any help is much appreciated! We don't drive, so driving a moving truck ourselves is not an option. We don't have too much to move.
 About 10 boxes.

I moved last September to Manchester and had lot of stuff to move over. The shipping companies all had several consequences after investigation so I finally moved boxes 📦 by post. I can’t quite remember the cost for 10 kg, but that was my best option to post all my boxes to a friends place before moving there. But you can try making inquiries with several shipping companies to find out the conditions before you decide.

I have also shipped stuff by post between countries: from Germany to Johannesburg, from Johannesburg to North Wales. And I used those nice yellow boxes you can get from the post office here. 

 

Another option I used when I moved from Germany to Palma de Mallorca was using air freight. You have to get the boxes to the airport yourself and get someone to carry them from the airport, but I did it. 

 

When I moved, I never moved with furniture, just boxes, clothes, linen (e.g. duvet covers), two kelim carpets and two standard lamps. When I moved to Mallorca, I remember that it all came to 240 kg. I have heavy dictionaries.
