Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

Can anyone here recommend a good but not expensive but reliable moving company that can move furniture from UK to Switzerland?

Can you also recommend a good and not expensive furniture storage facility in the areas of Zug, Nidwwalden, Luzern, Obwalden? How much do they cost per month for a bigger unit? Is it possible to rent a room or garage from someone to store nice furniture??? any suggestions?? need a storage place for 1 year. Thanks

We used this company when we moved over: http://www.hamiltonsremovals.co.uk/

They were very professional, and inexpensive (comparing to other quotes we had).

All the best.

Re: Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

Hi, I used Luker Bros when I moved over and they were very good. This was 8 years ago though. They were recommended to me at the time and I didn't shop around for prices...

We have used Luker Bros twice recently, within the last 6 months, for separate furniture deliveries; they were excellent, arrived dead on time (quite a feat considering they had just driven across France), no damage, polite and helpful removals team, and inexpensive. Or maybe we have just been living here too long . Can certainly recommend them. Can't help with storage solutions, though.

Hope that helps.

Our company use Zebra Box for storage here in Lausanne. They might have a depot near to you...?

Re: Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

I used a freelance Romanian guy based in London. He and his mate brought my stuff over and I have to stay they were very professional. Calm and patient and though there was no lift this end they helped bring everything up. Will recommend them highly.

As to storage. I used Zebrabox. I even got a Van for the weekend at a very very good rate.

PM me your email address and I will send you their details.

Thanks

Re: Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

Just curious...would it not be cheaper to store in the UK for a year and then move the furniture here? I can't imagine storage here would cost less than there...but I could be wrong.

Re: Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

We used Simpsons UK. First we stored our furniture at their storage in UK for 4 months. And then it was delivered to Switzerland.
They were great, everything arrived when expected.

Hi,


We are moving from Bristol to Zurich and we have a few furniture that needs shifting.
Can you please send me the details of this Romanian guy and how was your experience with him?


Thanks

Re: Moving company for furniture from UK to Switzerland needed

We moved from london to zurich 18 months ago, I used an online company called anyvan where people bid on the jobs. Only negative was we had to pack and unpack the van ourselves and complete all the customs forms but it all went smoothly and the price was about half of any of the other quotes.
