Suggestions for Moving Companies from USA to CH?

Hello, lovely EFers!

First, thank you for all your excellent posts!

Background: Our family of four will be moving from the US to CH in November. We've read some excellent posts about shipping vs. mailing one's household goods, but we're still deciding what to do.

Does anyone have any recommendations for moving companies that have experience shipping household goods from the USA to CH? We want to make sure that they handle the customs bureaucracy correctly (e.g., crossing the border during opening hours, submitting the Form 18.44, etc.).

Also, a related question: The instructions for Form 18.44 state, 'In principle notification subsequent consignments must be made at the time of the first importation, at the latest, however, within 2 years from the date of when the transfer of domicile occurred'. Does that mean the complete inventory of all shipments must be made with the first shipment, or simply that the one must indicate at the first shipment that other shipments will be coming?

Thank you so much!
