Anyone have a generator they can borrow me today?

Preferably the Zurich area. Have to move a friends things from a place with no electricity, and needs it to be done tonight. Location is remote so no problem with neighbors. If someone in the Zurich, Basel, or Delemont area has one they can borrow me for a day or so, I would gladly appreciate it.

Re: Anyone have a generator they can borrow me today?

Jumbo has/had a special on two models a couple of weeks ago that were quite interesting. You might try there.

The model was AYCE (3'00 watts) for CHF 335 and another (5'500 watts) for CHF 799.

Or you could rent one from Loxam in ZH:

Different sizes:

FR

DE

P.S. The word you were looking for is lend (not borrow).

Lend or borrow?

That depends on your dialect. Scousers, for instance, are well known for saying "Can you borrow me a...." meaning lend
Doesn't mean it's correct.

Re: Anyone have a generator they can borrow me today?

I was in Bauhaus, yesterday, and noticed that they had a 'baby' one for 129 - but I didn't get any spec. - but for simple appliances (low wattage?), it may be suitable.
