Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

John moved me from London a few days ago, and I cannot thank him enough. Even with all the amazing reviews here, I was initially worried that he would drive off into the sunset with my life possessions never to be seen again.

All that is past now; John came on time and delivered as promised. He and Ivo (extra set of hands brought along with no extra charge) were super quick with loading and unloading (they lifted my overweight boxes like they were pillows!!), and managed to pack more into the van than I imagined possible.

Thanks again John, you were an absolute lifesaver. I've got you on speed dial now for any future emergencies!

Thank you Adelynn for that excellent review.

And everyone else for their comments too.

Just to remind everyone that we go any where in Switzerland where required (original thread title altered by over zealous moderator) and do trips back to the UK fairly regularly too.

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

John can definitely be proud of all the positive comments here! Let me add one more

John was of great help to us last weekend (sunday morning!) with collecting the furniture from different places in and around Zurich and moving it to a new flat. Not only has he carried all the heavy things, but also ably disassembled two big wardrobes and remained positive despite the misleading GPS instructions and tiny elevator

I recommend John with pleasure to anyone who looks for reliable moving service for a good price.

Merry Christmas to you too mate.

Nice to see you again when you happened to be helping my friend with the giant pots move

I may need to pull a favour from you if cant sort via car, I bought a couple of those coca cola tables that pubs have in their gardens for my terrace. I'll give you a shout.

Hi Johnnyd1969.

Do you also do trips further afield?

I might just possibly have some stuff that needs transferring to Spain in circa mid to late 2013. Would you consider doing that?

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

Hey Amogles,

Thanks for the enquiry,

Yes for sure, I would do that for you when needed.

I regularly go to UK and Italy so Spain would be no problem.

John

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

Great, I'll contact you closer to the date. It might be later this year, it might also be next year. Possibly I may even move the stuff in batches so that might mean one trip this year and one next.

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

I am currently in the UK and returning to Switzerland on the 4th Feb.

I will return to UK at the beginning of March and have some space if anyone was thinking about moving any posessions back. It is possible there may be space on the return to Switzerland too.

PM me if anyone has any enquiries

Many thanks,

John

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

Hello John,

Are you still bringing things to Switzerland from the UK?

I'm an sculptor working in glass, and I need work bringing from the UK to Zurich in mid March.

It is the least fragile type of glass, and it would not take up much space, but it will be heavy.

One of the members kindly forwarded me to your advert.

Cheers

Jooles

John has helped me move to our new apartment in Baar. I highly recommend him, he was on time, moved everything efficiently, assembled the furniture back in the new apartment and he also helped us to fix the lights. Thank you very much John.

Re: Man with a van for hire: CHF50 per hour, Luzern area

Another recommendation for John, he really helped me out today (Sunday ) transporting some furniture from ZH. He's friendly, efficient and took great care in ensuring that the dagger like artex walls didn't ruin the leather couches as we carried them up the stairs.

Cheers mate

Re: Man with a van Luzern + Zurich area from 60CHF ph

What can we say that has not already been sent in previous posts ... John helped us collect our purchases from Ikea in Rothenburg and dropped them off at our apartment in Schwyz. He was on time, friendly, extremely helpful and affordable too. We highly recommend John and he would be our first point of call for future projects without a shadow of a doubt. Thanks again, Mark and Carrie 29.04.2013

Re: Man with a van Luzern + Zurich area from 60CHF ph

I used John's services recently to ship my new furniture from Ikea ZH to Schaffhausen. John is reliable, professional and easy going. He speaks Eng perfectly (I guess he's from UK) and he did a great job. He charged me 60CHF per person/hour, Van included. He handled my shipment very carefully and in half the time. He took care of the premises in a very professional manner, making sure we were not experiencing any hall/building damages. I appreciated that par. I asked him to provide me 3 hours service and he provided me the same service for 1.5hr. He charged me the effective time per person. Very cool guy. I will call him again for my next moving. I recommend him to anyone needs his services.

Re: Man with a van Luzern + Zurich area from 60CHF ph

Hi John

I am looking for someone to help me move tomorrow morning Friday 7th June 2013. I have 120 kg of clothes, books, food etc. no furnitures just about 7 suitcases ( various sizes), some boxes and one small microwave.

I am moving between two districts in Zurich. (5 min drive). Both my apartments (old and new) do not have lifts and I am on the 3rd floor in both!

Are you available and how much would you charge?

Kind Regards
Vaneshree

I have an English plated Toyota van with me here in Switzerland and am looking to put it to good use while i have it. It is Transit size and is perfect for furniture removals/house clearances/pick-up drop-off etc etc.
I am based in Luzern but am willing to travel anywhere in Switzerland where needed.
The cost of the van + loader/driver.... basically me, is 50 chf per hour which i hope is a reasonable rate. This rate includes my time to drive to destination and time to complete whatever work needs doing. My drive back to Luzern will not be charged to you.

Private message me for any quotes you might need.

Thanks

John
