Leaving Switzerland-storage solution before shipping?

Hi folks,
my family is leaving Switzerland end of Jan, and will take a few months to travel before we decide where to settle after. We're wondering if there's anyone that can give us suggestions of shipping companies that can ALSO store our items (looking at probably 20ft container). Final shipment would probably be either Canada or NZ, so any experience shipping to those countries is appreciated, in terms of cost, insurance issues, timing, others?
I already asked for a few quotes but I can't seem to find a company that STORE AND SHIP as single service.

Thanks for your help!!

If you haven't done so already, try contacting Interdean Moving Services, who are a global relocation agency with offices worldwide, including Switzerland (Zurich and Geneva).

I have no direct experience of, nor know anyone who has used them, so this is not an endorsement or recommendation.

A friend of mine used to work in one of their Swiss offices and which is how I came to hear about them.

In any case, good luck!

To avoid useless suggestions, which companies have you already tried? We used Packimpex on the Swiss side of our move, and they did store items here for a short time before delivering. Not sure how that would work for leaving Switzerland, though.

Re: Leaving Switzerland-storage solution before shipping?

What could be a "useless" suggestion to one person could just be a vitally useful piece of information to another dontcha think?

Agree, it would be helpful if the OP listed the companies they've already contacted, however.

Re: Leaving Switzerland-storage solution before shipping?

Thanks, so far we asked 7 different companies for quotes...
Interdean was okay, but price quite high... Crown Relo the best on service, but crazy prices,... and then best on price Reloswiss... but service so so...
Does anyone has experience with reloswiss? there's not much to check on their website and not many comments online...

Thanks!
