    Thanks for all of the great information! Me and my husband will be moving to Germany shortly, just waiting on amended orders. All of your videos are so helpful. I didn’t have a very good idea of what to bring in flight baggage/UB/HHG and this helped me get an idea of what I will need. Please keep making these videos and thank you so much!

    Question? I always hear the horrors of shipping your HHG
    Where do you recomend sending your clothes? And shoes?
    Just with you in your personal luggage?

    Or is it fine with UAB ? How is HHG different from UAB?

    A lot of airlines offer up to 5 free checked bags. Would you suggest taking as much as you can with you THEN UAB? And the rest HHG?

    Right on time! I just dropped my husband off to the airport this morning for Germany and me, the kids, and our dog will be going in 3 weeks.
    Thank you so much for these videos, they truly are a great help! You cover all of the questions that I’ve been having concerning this PCS move in all of your videos. Great content, thank you!

    Do you have a recommendation for a real estate agent near Ramstein?

    Great videos and information. As for other things to possibly cover, help with phone usage in Germany/Europe and differences in EUSEUR drivers license and an international drivers license. Vehicle inspection and registration comes to mind as well.
