Move a truckload from Netherlands (AMS) to Zurich

Hello,

I will be moving to Zurich around end March 2015, from lovely Amsterdam. All my household stuff should fit into one truckload - standard container of approx 4x2x2 meters. I did some search around this forum/Google, and I'm in process of gathering quotes. Haven't got any so far. I have two questions:

Any Dutch people been in similar (wooden) shoes? How much did it cost, so that I know if I am over/underpaying?

Secondly, is anyone doing a similar/en-route moving around end-Mar/early Apr? We could perhaps do the moving together by getting a larger truck, or go to the moving company together to get a better deal.

PS - while everyone is free to write inputs, North NL to Zurich estimates / experiences are most welcome. I am aware of the Man with Van, and other possibilities with UK.

Come now, as a good dutchman, you're per definition always overpaying!

We finalized with Top Movers from Arnhem, for 31st March (delivery date in Zurich). Please check with them if they have a possibility of sharing. Note: they won't do it for free, but may offer a good deal due to sharing loads. Thanks.

Schmidt global in Woudenberg does quite a bit in moving from the Netherlands to Switzerland, so maybe he can take your stuff with another load.

Re: Move a truckload from Netherlands (AMS) to Zurich

I know a guy who did a man-with-van service for me last year: Netherlands (Noord-Brabant) - Lausanne. Costs were around EUR 800 for 10m3. Let me know, I could pass you his details; we might even be able to share a load.
