Re: [US->CH] Good moving company??

The good thing for me is that as part of my relocation package my firm covers the cost of packing and transportation of my personal belongings to Switzerland. Thus, it makes much more sense for me to purchase what I need in the US at reasonable prices, have it shipped at no cost to myself to Switzerland and hit the ground running not having to worry about where to buy stuff and how much it will cost. If I didn't have this benefit I might consider selling my stuff in the US and refurnishing once I arrive in Lausanne.
Also remember that a lot of electric goods from your side of the Pond really don't like 230V - and the TV standard is different (PAL vs NTSC)

Good luck
