Relocation package negotiation? (Munich)

Dear everyone,

I am at a final stage in being interviewed for an SAP Consultant position based in Munich.

I should have an interview with the HR manager on Monday to discuss relocation package. The company offers a relocation package, but I know no more details.

Obviously, I need to be prepared with my expectations and I need your help there.

1. What could be typically included in a relocation package? I am moving with my bf and we have no children.

2. Can I ask them to cover the brokerage costs and the deposits for the apartment rental? Based on my research this could be around good Protected content if I am looking at Protected content apartments.

3. I am also considering asking for temporary housing costs for 1 month until I find a permanent apartment.

4. Shipment costs of my belongings.

Have you had any experience in negotiating relocation packages? How does it usually go?

Could I receive the allowence in advance or will I get reimbursed for my expenses later?

Many thanks in advance!
