Looking for a door to door delivery service in Switzerland

Hi.
My name is David, 32 years old , Iím from Canada and we will arrive in Switzerland on Jan 2011 for 12 months work relocation.
I have a lot of things that I need to arranged and I prefer to do as much as I can while Iím still in Canada
In Canada there are private delivery services that make many daily arrangements for you (go to the pharmacy to buy what you need, buy movie tickets for you , pay your bills at the bank etc) and charge per service or per day
basically these are door to door delivery services that offer extra services.
Are these companies available in Switzerland ?
Where can I find a list and details?
Many thanks
David

A personal concierge?

Google yielded this.

I was under the impression this wasn't needed in Switzerland because Swiss wives fulfil concierge requirements

Mine does, and she's not even Swiss!

I'll have to see how long I can stretch out this 'convalescence'...

Re: Looking for a door to door delivery service in Switzerland

Here is the website of a "free time creator" in Neuchatel... recommended on this forum some time ago and I managed to find the link again:
http://www.mypa.ch/#

And in Basel, our very own Nil is (or was) offering her services as a personal shopper:
http://www.englishforum.ch/jobs-want...shopper-2.html
I think she may have been thinking more of wardrobe shopping than general errand-running, but you can ask her yourself.

Where in Switzerland are you moving to?

Re: Looking for a door to door delivery service in Switzerland

As the partner of a Swiss man, I'm always on the lookout for ways to minimise my concierge duties, ha ha. You can get almost everything delivered to your home from drugstores, supermarkets and the like and order most things online, including movie tickets. All bills can be paid online, with most sent directly to your bank account. If you hire someone to clean for you, I'm sure you could pay him or her to do any other errands.

I am sure you will not require such services in switzerland as everything can be done online and all day to day things also can be managed nearby.
