Moving Puzzle

Hello Forumers

I'd like to get the Forum's (always invaluable) input on how best to approach moving house within Switzerland. Situation is this:

I'm currently in a flatshare, but will be moving down the road (ten mins drive, to central Zug) in to my own apartment imminently. My challenge is how to shift furniture. I essentially have two loads of furniture to move - my bed, wardrobes, bike, spare car wheels etc etc from my current place, and also a bunch of stuff (bed, dining table, etc) that I bought from a cool Scottish couple in north Zurich to help furnish the new apartment.

One option of course is to hire a van (recommendations on best place for this?) and draft in some luckless friend to help. The only problem with this is that the new place is in central Zug and I'm not sure exactly where I could park up a van for a while whilst unloading. But I'm sure I could work this out.

Option 2 would be to go for "Man with Van" option, and I can see there have been some threads on this in the past (but recent recommendations would be very welcome).

Option 3 would be to throw money at the problem and get a removals company to do it (ie. both pickups). Any recommendations or views on who to use/not to use, and how much this may cost?

Many thanks in advance.

This would be the cheapest option if money is an issue.
With regard to the parking of the van, speak to the Zug police in advance. They should be able to advise you of your options in parking and, for a nominal fee, be able to cordon off an area for you where you can park the van whilst you unload.

Re: Moving Puzzle

There are probably local van hire (Google search or yellow pages) in your area, but on one of my trips to Bauhaus (outside Bern) I saw that they rented vans by the hour (I guess for transporting large/heavy objects bought in-store ... but probably not limited to that); and it seemed not too expensive (maybe hidden extras/insurance??). There is a Bauhaus in the Zurich area (not too far from Zug?).
