Getting ready to pack for the move. Question is, which part of my extensive (and heavy) tool collection to bring. -Ex. ANY SAE wrenches, ALL bit drivers?(square,hex,star etc,). Anything electrical ? As I am a Mechanic/Contractor/Handwerker, the thinking is to "only bring it if it's worth it ", because if it's as costly to ship as to replace, why bother? I will bring the basics as I will be looking at ANY work opportunity, but am wondering if anyone in "The Field " has any insight at all. Thank you for your time...M

I live in Cologne and have managed various moves which require refitting wardrobes and kitchens. I would say you can leave all electrical and English tools at home since they either wont work (220V) or are not needed (metric). Anything else that is basically mechanical (hammer) or adjustable will work here. I would check the prices at BauHaus ( and Obi ( to see if the cost of replacement is less than the cost of transport. The technical level is the same or better than the USA. You could also put any questions into (use google translator if you need help with German) Good Luck

Hello, I'm in search of a mechanic or garage to work on a Mercedes Sprinter van for a charity rally to Mongolia. Our van is currently in Dormagen and I guess the two nearest cities are Cologne and Dusseldorf from which we could easily travel. I and another teammate arrive around June 10th and need to start getting the van ready for the 10K kilometer trip. Anyone with suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated as I have no clue. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello: Moving the wife and (two small children) to the Cologne Region. Will be teaching English and doing a DJ Business in the beginning; however, I am looking for "better" employment opportunities (full time) there.

Hi, I have been living in Cologne for a number of years and can tell you that there are 3 major options that come to mind 1. Chemicals (Bayer is HQ'd here), 2 Auto (Ford is HQ'd here) 3 TV and entertainment (many TV programs and film companies operate here). See the Cologne site (use Google translator to help)... Here are some search options. put in cologne or köln in the wo: (where) window. Also, there are a number of contract houses that service the auto industry that have many job options... Good Luck. Cologne is a wonderful place to live.
