Moving from London to Lausanne in August

Hi all,

I am planning my move (back) to Lausanne from London. My first available day is August 5 and the move would need to be complete by August 12 at the latest. It's hard for me to give an exact number of boxes right now, but:
  • at the moment it seems I'd be leaving all my furniture behind aside from a very small desk (http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/271801...-1/s-l1000.jpg). HOWEVER, this might change as I might decide to bring with me a double bed and average sized (150cmx200cmx60cm approx) wardrobe;
  • a mix of 15 medium or large boxes/suitcases is likely to be a reasonable estimate.
Is anyone in a position to help with this? A possible strategy would be to combine my move with someone else's move in the opposite direction. For example, I could rent a van (with joint insurance etc) in London, drive it with my belongings to Switzerland, and hand it over there to people who'd return it to London.

Alternatively, I'd be interested in hearing quotes (feel free to PM me). Thanks in advance for your replies.

So what happened to the move last year?

You could try contacting Confloozed by PM as they do runs between Switzerland and the UK.

Re: Moving from London to Lausanne in August

Last year we couldn't find the solution on this forum; as far as I remember, dates were the main issue. I will contact Confloozed now, thanks for the suggestion!

Re: Moving from London to Lausanne in August

I've used Luker Bros twice now. Once for moving house and again for delivering some new furniture. They come to Switzerland every week so will sometimes have space on a lorry, it's worth a punt...
