Relocation companies in Lausanne

Hello,

I am searching a good relocation company in Lausanne that can assist me in apartment hunting and organizing move. I have been looking for an apartment for over 3 months now and it appears that without a relocation company it is very difficult. So if anyone has experience with a relocation company in apartment hunt, please share and recommend.

Any experience with a company called ‘Acropolis Services’ in Lausanne?

Many thanks in advance!

For me it was Welcome Service (http://www.welcome-service.ch/), they have one agent working in Lausanne and it was quite OK.

Good luck

This is a very useful thread!
How much would it cost asking them to help find an apartment then? Thanks!

I was happy with accessimmo.ch

They charge the equivalent of a full rent when you sign up the bail.

I've used (my company offered) a relocation service when moving to Lausanne; but no idea how much they charge though. Anyone willing to share?

Re: Relocation companies in Lausanne

I paid a 2.5k flat rate. I am not sure it was because i was looking for an apt with a budget of 2.5k/month or because it was her fixed rate.
I was in the US while she looked for the place and it took about 6 months until signing the lease.
Overall i am happy with my place and she was efficient. The contract though said she gets paid regardless of finding a place or not (lucky that she found me a place and wasnt up to ripping me off). Make sure you read the fine prints.

Re: Relocation companies in Lausanne

I was/am very happy with my company provided Auris. Can't give you a price I'm afraid though.
