What does a move to Berlin cost?

The cost of moving to Berlin depends mainly on two things: the distance between the place of origin and the destination and the volume of items and furniture transported. In the table below, we have listed the approximate costs for typical moves from other cities to Berlin.

Important to note: Although the prices cover a large part of the moves, we will calculate the costs for your personal move individually and according to your wishes.
