Urgent Man with Van

Hi please can someone urgently help a damsel in distress? I have to shift my stuff from my old house in Schaffhausen to my new place in Zurich. It is only a small van load, everything ready to go but needs to be a van or car big enough to fit a double mattress in and other bits and pieces. Before someone tells me off for not looking in another thread, I have looked at all the threads as I'm not lazy and have called all of those people, Gregory, etc and none of them will confirm anything so I really need some help pointing in the right direction. Thanks so much :-)

Re: Urgent Man with Van

I was in a similar bind recently. Pappa Goose usually quite good but he was booked up, so may be get in touch with him first. Then I called Zebra Storage and they have some removal men with Vans that are charged by the hour. The person I dealt with there is a nice lady call Elisabeth and she speaks excellent English.

I ended up using Vincintini as I am getting stressed with not right quote etc and a friend called them for me. I concluded the quote at 4 in the afternoon and they picked up the stuff for me at 9 the next morning. I got a good price but may be that included a heavy personal discount.

Failing that, try Mobility or Ikea to see whether you can get a van for the day. Good luck.

Alternative, call EF event with free booze, I am sure some chunky bloke will come alone and help out.

Re: Urgent Man with Van

If you get really stuck - let me know.
I have a mobility membership and could book a van under my name for 2-3 hours and drive it for you. You would just have to pay me the cost of the van.
I would help you move and I am sure we could get a couple of burly EFers to help.

Re: Urgent Man with Van

Just out of interest - is this still 'urgent'?

Could you kindly provide me with the contact details for the best service company that you would recommend for a small move?
