Moving Furniture from Zurich to UK - ADVICE -

Hi guys,

What is the best to do with my furniture, should I sell them in Switzerland or ship them back to the UK.

Do I need to pay UK Tax for my furniture.
What is the best decent shipping company, to ship my furniture back to UK.

Many thanks in advance for your replies.

Hi

It all depends on how attached you are to your furniture!! If it's good stuff then you may want to take it back with you to UK, if it's Ikea etc, lots of folks sell it before moving.

We used a removal company that specialise between Switzerland and the UK called Lukerbros. http://www.lukerbros.co.uk/swiss.html

They do a weekly service between here and UK. We found them to be very efficient, friendly and reasonably priced.

Good luck with your move

Hi

We moved from the UK to Switzerland with a company called Keller. They were excellent ! They have offices in the UK and all over Switzerland and they did a super job and the staff were very professional. At the time of our move, I had just given birth to my daughter and my husband was already working abroad. I was left without my husband to help with my little one, the relocation and a house to sell... ! I couldn't be more grateful for all the help that Keller gave us! I am sure you will receive an excellent service from them.
