FAQ

Most common questions and answers
There is no general answer to the question of the costs of moving out, because many special factors ultimately affect the final price of a move. This includes not only the quantity and size of your removal goods, but also the number of removal helpers required and the time taken accordingly. Certain services such as the disposal of bulky waste, the dismantling of a kitchen or the packing service are included in the calculation. We will of course be happy to make an offer or a cost estimate - all of this is of course free of charge, as is your request. In principle, you will receive an offer if you send us an inquiry beforehand. Please give us some time to process it - so that we can also process your moving request precisely. You can get a rough price overview from us by telephone. Contact Einfach-Umzug Neuss - we are always there for you!
Yes, of course we would be happy to come to you for a viewing - this appointment is free of charge! This gives us an overview of the moving volume, which allows us to make you a very precise and free offer. But there is also another possibility: You can also calculate the amount yourself. You can use a so-called "room calculator" for this - so you already have a first clue. The standard is: One cubic meter corresponds to about eight moving boxes or two washing machines.
Basically, the earlier the better! The summer months of June, July, August and the winter month of December are high season for moving companies. During this time it can take longer than usual. It is therefore best to allow a little more time for viewing, preparing an offer and planning. If necessary, you should not forget to set up the no-parking zone - at least two weeks should be estimated here. In short: If you contact us about six to eight weeks before the planned moving date, the chances are considerably increased that you will be able to move at the time you want. The best thing to do is to call us in advance - this way we can quickly find a solution that meets your needs.
Of course, you can reschedule your move to another date. Ideally, you are on the safe side if you do this as early as possible - this will avoid additional costs that could otherwise arise.
Yes, of course, additional volunteers are always welcome to provide support. In principle, this is not a problem for us. However, you should take into account that any damage to your belongings, which were carried and transported by your friends, is not insured. It is therefore advisable to only delegate lighter tasks to your friends and to always listen to the relocation staff.
In cases where direct unloading is not possible, for example because the new apartment is still in the renovation phase or a new apartment has not yet been found at the destination, our storage service can be used. We are also happy to assist you with partial storage. Our relocation consultants will of course be happy to help you with questions about the process and possible storage locations.
Don't worry: the shipping company is automatically liable - it does not require a separate agreement. Nevertheless, it is limited in terms of reason and amount according to HGB (§§ 451ff.). As a rule, the basic liability is sufficient to ensure adequate insurance of the removal goods. However, it looks very different when you store very valuable furniture and have other items to transport. We would be happy to advise you on this - we can, for example, offer you a special transport insurance policy, which in terms of coverage is considerably above the statutory liability provisions. We will find the right variant for you.
Regardless of whether it is a private move or a commercial move - if certain conditions are met, the moving costs can also be deducted from tax. Any tax advisor will be able to provide you with more detailed information.
Many customers fear that when choosing a moving company they will choose the wrong one and, in the worst case, even fall for dubious offers or unprofessional companies. These worries are justified when you consider that moving in Germany can cost you an average monthly salary, depending on the time and effort involved. It is therefore advisable to find out about the various offers from different service providers in advance. This is not only easy on your wallet, but also on your nerves.

For the price, however, it is not only the quality of the respective moving company or the amount of moving goods to be transported that is decisive, but also the type of freight: Compared to moving a private person, the price of transporting valuable art objects is significantly higher because it is laboriously packed and must be specially secured. This is just one example of many, but it illustrates what there is to consider when moving.

So that you don't get any nasty surprises, we have a few tips here that will help you choose the best price-performance ratio for your move.

An average family, consisting of one pair of parents and two children, has accumulated household inventory over a period of around 20 years, for the relocation of which the family has to calculate costs equivalent to an average monthly wage. From this point in time at the latest, it is worthwhile to obtain individual offers and compare prices.

You should definitely consider the following information about moving companies - no matter how high the costs for your move will be.

The German market for moving companies consists of an immense number of providers, as the demand for them is very high. This is also the reason that moving companies are tied to certain criteria regarding price-performance if they want to remain competitive. For you as a customer, this means a bit of security: Fixed hourly rates or even an agreed fixed price give you security against nasty surprises, provided the scope of services is precisely determined and additional orders are not required.

Here is an example: if two people move and a truck is needed, most reputable and professional transport companies charge between € 90 and € 100 per hour (including VAT). With three people and one truck, costs between € 125 and € 140 per hour (including VAT) are incurred.

These prices already include VAT, profit, marketing and sales costs, wages and taxes for employees, costs for trucks and all other costs such as the costs for office space, parking spaces, tax consultants and accounting. A whole lot! Interestingly, the prices for moving in eastern German federal states (excluding Berlin) are around 10% lower than in the rest of Germany.

Also keep in mind that not only are there many moving companies, but they are also very different from each other. Although many moving companies offer their services at the above-mentioned conditions, there are also companies that stand out from the competition in terms of their pricing, i.e. either charge significantly more money with simultaneous inflexibility, or move very cheaply and promptly realize, but then renegotiate effort and prices during implementation.

At this point it should first be about the more expensive moving companies: Nowadays hardly any company exclusively employs its own employees and trucks for their orders, because it is simply not worth it: It is uneconomical, impractical and too expensive due to seasonal fluctuations. A carrier that is said to be booked out several months in advance is unlikely to be economically stable. With such a statement, there is a certain likelihood that the moving company is either having logistical problems or is using a marketing trap to attract its customers. It is also possible that you have come across a specialized moving company (e.g. for art transports) and therefore do not belong to the usual clientele.

Either way, you can be sure that you will be quoted an above-average price in any case. You should therefore reject offers from such providers and obtain prices from other companies that specialize in moving. Because who wants to pay too much?

The last-mentioned moving companies, i.e. those that offer their services at significantly lower prices, are also not recommended. Do you still know the saying: "The stingy pays twice?". It is the same with companies that are supposedly available immediately and for a very low price. They also have a good reason their prices
to be able to keep it so low: No customers. Such freight forwarders often work unprofessionally and take little care when shipping the goods to be transported. It is not uncommon for something to break. It is annoying when you not only have a failed move behind you, but also have considerable damage. The money you spent on the inexpensive but dubious freight forwarder and the new furniture would have been better put into a professional moving company, right? Conspicuously favorable offers can also be an indication of illegal work, for example if employment relationships are not properly established or billed.

If a company saves such cost factors, it will be able to make you a significantly cheaper offer compared to a reputable provider than a reputable company can do. We can only recommend that you keep your hands off such companies. The savings of your own hundred euros is simply not worth it. In the event of a not unlikely damage to your property, you end up being left with the costs and you have no way of letting the person responsible pay for it.
In this case, it is difficult to make a general statement because there are many factors that may have a significant effect on the price. The location, accessibility, the nature of the building, installation and many other variables can have a major impact on the price.

Even a visit by an employee of the respective moving company is unfortunately no guarantee of a fair offer.

Fortunately, there are some indications of legitimate offers that will help you choose:

Provided that the customer has not forgotten any rooms in the information about the apartment or house and has not made any incorrect statements regarding the other information, he will receive offers from reputable moving companies that are comparable in price and are based on the calculation of the average values:

2 people + 1 truck between € 90 and € 100 per hour (including VAT)

3 people + 1 truck between € 125 and € 140 per hour (including VAT)

Depending on whether an exact move list is available, a reputable moving company will either make a final offer or offer a preliminary estimate based on the information available. If this should then deviate upwards, most companies proceed in such a way that the customer pays the additional hours.

In both cases, if the price is right, there is a high probability that you have made the right choice.

At the end of their move, many customers have the feeling that it did not go properly. This is not uncommon and results from the simple but not negligible fact that moving is always emotionally stressful. For most people, moving is not just a financial expense, it is stressful.

Above all, it is important not to lose a sober view of the matter: You should be aware that moving staff and helpers are there to make the move as easy and stress-free as possible for you. These people are primarily responsible for getting your belongings safely and safely from A to B. Of course, even a serious and reliable moving company can make mistakes: furniture can break, tires can burst. The important thing here is how the moving company deals with such a situation. Are there any contact persons? Who pays for the damage (insurance)? Have these eventualities been discussed with you in advance? In the event of an insurance loss, the value is also important. It is possible that your insurance should not be charged in the event of a minor mishap. In this case, is there another way of making amends (e.g. discount)?

If the answer is yes at the end of the day, then you were in good hands even if there were negative incidents.

Quality control is also very important. An effective means of quality management is the issuing and evaluation of evaluation sheets.

Perhaps you find such a procedure to be excessive, but the evaluation sheets ensure that information about the course of a move must be obtained from the customer. In this way, it can be guaranteed that any displeasure about the process or certain circumstances during a move will become known and that future moves will proceed properly for other customers.

We can therefore only advise you to inquire about the respective quality control mechanisms at your moving company. For this reason, Einfach-Umzug also carries out spontaneous checks during a move and calls to customers after a move in addition to the aforementioned evaluation sheets in order to check the quality of the moves carried out on a random basis.

This question no longer arises today.

Modern technologies make it possible to do everything via the internet and the phone. Even the classic tours, which are often advertised as "free" and are still desired by many customers, represent an avoidable, because unnecessary, cost factor. According to estimates, the cost of such a tour is up to € 100. This money could certainly be better invested. So don't be dazzled by moving companies who charge additional fuel costs or travel times for such visits. These are all tricks to drive the price up. Everything is a question of logistics and organization.

Economically stable moving companies differ in their price by a maximum of 50 € depending on the location. A cleverly operating company will never pass this price on to its customers in order not to risk negative reviews. Because only a satisfied customer will give a recommendation and positive feedback.

Of course, we also offer viewings from Einfach-Umzug, but due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic, we would recommend a live video call (e.g. via Skype or Zoom) with one of our specialists. After the virtual tour, they will send you an individual offer.

Alternatively, you can take action yourself and simply send us a video of your living space to kontakt@einfach-umzug.com. This is forwarded via WeTransfer.com, a professional platform for secure data transfer. This saves you valuable time and allows you to organize your move in an uncomplicated and stress-free manner.
