Top Relocation Companies In Berlin Germany – I have the (somewhat) unique experience of moving to Berlin, not once, but twice! I came here in June 2011, stayed for a year and half, before heading home to Canada. I missed Berlin so much I came back in November 2014. I handled both moves on my own without any help well, to be frank, it was a fairly stressful time sorting out my visa situation, arranging to have my belongings shipped here, finding a place to live, and so much more. If I’d had the extra cash, I’d have hired a relocation company to assist me with both of those moves. Knowing someone else was taking care of things and making my life easier would have removed so much burden from my shoulders and allowed me to focus more on important things like spending every last minute with friends and family before leaving.
If you’re planning a move to Berlin and don’t know where to start, I’d suggest using a relocation company. They can assist you with everything from your visa application, to your flat search, and even your job hunt. Use this list of top relocation companies in Berlin Germany to get started.
