Practical guide to Berlin moving

Are you one of those Berliners who are quite mobile and move frequently? Check out our useful tips.

Berlin is characterized by mobility and flexibility which not many German cities can match. Because of the tough housing situation you’ll likely to get caught up in sublets, or you might just change your mind and want to experience living in a new neighborhood. In any case, Berlin moving is a tedious process which you should start thinking about well in advance. SPIC AND SPAN. would like to provide you with basic tips on how to stay organized in that transitional period.

Berlin moving means packing wisely

You will probably need to get some packing boxes, but it’s a great idea to utilize what you already have. Suitcases, bags, baskets, backpacks, you name it – they can all be used to pack your stuff! Be sure to wrap fragile items in towels and cloths (everyone loves popping bubble wrap, but if you can avoid buying this single-use item – do it), and avoid packing a lot heavy items in one large box.

Purge the unnecessary possessions

There is little point in moving with possessions that you don’t want to keep. Even if you have mixed feelings and are not sure if you want to keep a specific item, high chances are that you don’t really need it. Start evaluating your belonging weeks after moving date and slowly declutter your living space. Selling or donating is an amazing option – this way your stuff will get a second life with someone who actually will make use of it!

The same goes for moving to a new place – don’t go and buy all sorts of kitchen appliances, etc. on a post-move shopping spree. If you put it off and buy new stuff as you need it, you’re likely to save a lot of storage space and money, and discover that you actually need fewer items that you originally thought.

Stay organized and plan ahead

When it comes to moving, there’s no such thing as “too early.” Here you can find a really useful article which breaks down all you need to do before you can finally end up in your new place. When your move is a few weeks ahead, you can already start using everything you have in your pantry so that you have fewer items to pack.

Don’t put off the cleaning until the last moment

It might be tempting to stop cleaning your place when you already know you’re leaving it, but trust me – don’t go that way. Your home will need a deep moving cleaning anyway, but neglecting the cleanliness for weeks will only make it more intimidating and tedious. Particularly bathrooms need to be cleaned on regular basis, otherwise the limescale that builds up on the shower and water faucets will take ages to get rid of. Try to be consistent with your cleaning routine.
