Moving from Iowa To Zurich...Movers or extra luggage?
My husband and I will be moving to Zurich Mid August. We are having a difficult time deciding if we should bring extra luggage with us on the airline or just pay for shipping. Here are the things we are trying to consider:
1) AIRPORT: We would likely have 5-6 large suitcases. Plus we are traveling with a cat. How do we transport all of these suitcases once we arrive? Do we just pile them on the train with us to our destination?
2) SHIPPING: We would pack clothes, instruments, and maybe a few other items. Is is worth the $$ for us to be able to bring more and not have to deal with the hassle of traveling with this stuff? Also, any recs for good international movers? We currently have a quote for 2700 US dollars (200 cubic feet of space: door to door delivery)
We are primarily interested in taking clothings and books (and our bikes if we opt for shippers). No furniture. Advice is much appreciated!
Cheers and looking forward to getting involved with this site and joining you in Switzerland!
