Moving Netherlands (Delft) to Germany(Munchen)

Hi All,

I am moving country from Netherlands to Germany which includes carrying lots of luggage and some furniture (bed, sofa and 2 small wardrobes). I was thinking about renting a van (e.g. Mercedes Vito). I try to look for vans but I didn't found any prices... Can you give me some suggestion? Thank you.

Regards,
Ana

hi Ana,

honestly I'm not sure what sort of advice you expect to get from a travel forum about moving your belongings from holland to Germany.

the best I can think of is that you use a website like autoeurope to rent a van of some type; they usually have phone nos you can ring if the info isn't on the website.

alternatively, go to a specialist van rental site and see if they will do a "one way`'

you might even find that there is a removal firm that will give you a good price for a half load, if they have someone else moving in that direction.

There are plenty of companies in Delft who hire vehicles. Do a Google of bestelbusje huren Delft.

You can hire quite a big van on a normal driving licence. Much bigger than a Vito. Ask about which ones you can drive with a rijbewijs B.

You will of course have to return it to Delft once you have moved. The sooner you can do that the cheaper the hire. Expect to pay between €150 and €20 a day depending on the vehicle.

Thanks for the advises.

Annhig, I want to travel myself and my stuff to Germany. I was just wondering if someone had already booked a van for this itinerary and, if so, the best deals in the market. Hum.. yeah, I will check at the prices of removal firms.

Hetismij2, I was planning on doing the trip one way...

Ana - i think that the one-way hire may be VERY expensive. it may be cheaper just to rent by the day/hour, do the trip and bring it back, then return to Germany by train.

shame you are leaving Delft - we spent 3 days there recently and liked it a lot.

Hi Ana,

Hope you made it to Germany! I am currently residing in Rotterdam (NL) and a Google search about one way car (moving van) rentals brought me to this forum! I was wondering whether you have managed your trip from NL to Germany successful and if so what tips you have to give to someone who is looking into the same issue!

Given that it's been a year now any tips or things I can look out for would be greatly appreciated =)

Thanks again!
