We will soon be moving from Sydney to Munich for 3 yrs. We are not sure what to do with our appliances eg fridge, dryer, washing machine etc and also our TV's which are relatively new - should we bring these with us? Would appreciate comments on what others have done and recommendations. Thanks, Dave
Expat Health Insurance
If you’re thinking about taking out private health insurance, our trusted partner Cigna Global is very aware of all the difficulties that expats can face when it comes to healthcare in a new location, so they have created a range of international health insurance plans specifically designed for expats, which you can tailor exactly to the needs and ensure access to quality care for you and your family.
Sirelo has a network of more than 500 international removal companies that can move your furniture and possessions to your new home. By filling in a form, you’ll get up to 5 quotes from recommended movers. This service is free of charge and will help you select an international moving company that suits your needs and budget.
I think it would make more sense to sell the items you have in Australia and purchase replacements when you get to Munich.
You'll find that the cost of such items will be about the same, if not less in Europe. The expense of shipping the items from Sydney to Munich will be quite high and plus you'll have to wait quite a while for the items to arrive.
There is also the option of moving into a fully furnished place where the landlord will provide you with a fridge, washing machine, etc. Also, you should be able to find second hand goods online for just a fraction of the price.
Hope this helps.
