Hi there, I am planning to move back from the US (Seattle, WA) to Europe (Germany) and I am wondering how to approach my move. On the way out everything was organized by my employers, so quite easy. This time around it's up to me. I live in a one-bed apartment and don't really have any fancy furniture or much stuff in general, so I am planning to sell or give away most of my furniture and move with my beloved bicycle and an (at this point unknown) number of moving boxes full of clothes, books and random items.

Has anyone done something similar before and can give me some advice? Should I look into traditional moving companies or would it make more sense to just ship my boxes and bike with a company such as DHL or UPS?

Any advice will be very welcome

Sito

You didn't say how much had to be shipped or when you planned to leave. Check out this article and see if it helps. There are several excellent international forwarders right in Seattle.

Thanks for the link, I'll read that right now. At the moment I just don't know how much stuff I'll have. As I said I want to get rid of a lot of my things and then I'll have to see what's left but I am sure it'll be more than I am imagining right now

As you have mentioned that you have quite a number boxes So i think you should firstly get online quote for your move by filling some details and then compare the costing with DHL or any other shipping services .This will help you to decide on choosing any one service, which will be more economical.

Hey! So this was a couple of years ago. What did you do at the end? I am literally in the same situation (of course different cities) but with the same amount of stuff and such. Help! Thanks!
