Individual Service Packages for Your Move!


For those who have heard the expression “Across the Pond“ know that actually moving to another country is not as simple as the expression suggests. Our goal is to do just that, make it simple for you by offering individual service packages tailored just for you and your unique situation. Our work already starts before you leave your home country. Once in Germany, we meet up with you to guide and accompany you. For instance, we show you your new city, accompany you to all important government appointments, tour different accommodations, open a bank account with you, and much more. It is our goal to make you feel comfortable in Germany!

On this page, you can see an overview of our services. Once we get to know you and your unique relocation situation to Germany, we will create an individual service package for you that best suits your needs. Even if you are facing a very complicated situation: we can help you!

All service packages are tailored to your situation. In order to asses the individual needs, we offer all prospective clients an initial consultation either via phone or skype at no charge. Please contact our office to set up an appointment and for further information as well as prices.
