Relocating to Germany is a life-changing experience for expatriates and returning Germans alike. You and your family must focus on new challenges and perspectives in all aspects of your life. You need to rely on moving experts to organise the smooth transportation of your household goods and personal effects, including customs clearance, shipping and taking care of objects needing special attention, such as art objects or pianos. The same holds true if you’re moving on to tackle the next step in your global career.
Focused on Frankfurt RheinMain and Berlin, two main areas of expatriate relocation in Germany, MTL offers just that, while communicating with clients in English as well as in German. “Since 2014, we have established MTL in the competitive market of global relocation as a small but smart actor and can rely upon a worldwide network of partners. The expertise of our management and of many staff members dates back much longer into the 1980s,” states Dr Ingeborg Cleve, head of the MTL Berlin International Office. “This expertise is the basis of mutual trust and a spirit of cooperation among our teams, resulting in exceptional engagement and in a flat hierarchy.”
According to CEO Aydin Yavuzyilmaz, MTL is in a position to deliver household goods and personal effects coming in from overseas to any city or town in Germany, whereas MTL crews pack and load mainly in the greater Frankfurt RheinMain and Berlin metropolitan areas. “Many of our clients are financial experts, scientists, artists, as well as embassy and consulate employees. They emphasise our professional as well as individual approach to their personal demands. Major destinations of these clients lie within metropolitan areas of the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, but we have also handled moves to Singapore, Tokyo, Cairo, and Sao Paulo; in fact, to most destinations worldwide.” If required, storage can be offered as well.
Besides overseas relocation, Aydin would like to point to a different but equally important field of MTL activities: office moves and private moves in the Frankfurt RheinMain area. “We have the experience as well as all the relevant equipment. And, of course, we can handle these moves in English as well, if preferred by our clients.” Meanwhile, the next chapter of the MTL story is in the making: Merve Koçtürk and Müge Pakel, Aydin’s two daughters, are both working at MTL headquarters, preparing themselves to carry on the business. While running the MTL transport route from Germany to Istanbul and beyond, they’re also engaged in building up the MTL destination service for overseas moves to main destinations in Turkey.
