Moving is often very expensive. Groningen Transport (Voordelig Vervoerd) is the cheapest option available for international students and expats. You are also directly involved with determining the eventual costs. You either have the option to recruit some friends to help you with the move or you can contract Groningen Transport to hire extra staff to assist with the move.
It is important to take into account that homes, in predominantly the city centre of Groningen, often have small, steep stairs. It can therefore happent that a lot of large pieces of furniture (such as couches and closets) oftentimes do not fit through the stairwell. We therefore also offer a disassembly and assembly service. This yet another way in which you have choice over the final cost of the move: Do you do it yourself? The move will take less time and will thus be cheaper.
Another point to take note of is that in large parts of Groningen city centre, there are specific “loading times”. Loading and unloading may only take place between 5 am and 10:30 am or 6 pm and 8 pm.
