Relocation in Berlin

Moving to Berlin or relocating within Berlin should be well planned. Here is a brief summary of how to best perform this move.


Above all, one should start early to prepare for the move to Berlin. Preferably as soon as you start looking for new apartments or office, because things can often go quickly. In general, a preparation time of around three months is recommended.

Creating a schedule

It pays off to create a rough timetable and set the timing based on the notice period, the required condition of the rental property at handover, the type of move (with relocation company, family, friends, ...). It also makes it more organized to move to Berlin and reduces the risk of forgetting about something.

Relocation companies in Berlin

As soon as you decide to move with the help of a relocation company, tips on how to find the best moving company help enormously. The relocation professionals help on the one hand with packing and moving, but also support with the planning of the move. It starts with packing all the way through to unpacking, at the new office or apartment.

Decluttering before the move

It is advisable to sort out your belongings before the move, so that the relocation goods are already reduced in advance, because this subsequently affects the price of the move. In this step you should already think about which items are used more frequently or less often, so that packing can already be carried out more strategically. For example, certain things can be already stored outside of the new place during the move to the new Berlin apartment (basement, Storebox storage units, etc.)

Make checklists

Using checklists, you can simplify the move to a great extent. There is a very extensive relocation checklist by the Möbelpacker (including templates for termination letters and many useful links). On Umzüge Berlin 24 there are also tips & tricks that might be useful for you. offers asistance with a list for before the removal and another one for after the removal.

Pack for Berlin

As the move approaches, it’s time to pack. Relocation companies use bubble wrap (fragile things), lancing film (furniture), tissue paper (hollow utensils, such as glasses), and tape to seal moving boxes. But it does not always have to be tissue paper - newsprint is okay too. Especially labelling should be very well thought out. Here one can help oneself by paying attention to the visibility of labels, description, color coding and similar, because that facilitates the fast recovery of your moved goods enormously.
