Moving company in short notice (zurich)

Hi there,

What I was dreading for months about moving happens few days prior to our moving date: moving company bails on our agreement.

We are moving next Monday, Sept 11 (what a date!), this is a public holiday in Zurich. We tried contacting & reminding the moving company who had sent us the confirmation of dates, how many person & vehicle needed, price, etc (about 2 months ago via email). Finally we got an answer from him that he can no longer come on Monday. His reasoning is that he is unwell and his employees for some reason also can't help. Oh well....

Basically we are almost errr.. how do I say it without saying bad words.. we will get into a big trouble if we can't get help by this Monday. Since it is a new genossenschaft building and lots of tenants wanting to move in at the same time, we are given Sept 11 as a fixed date.
My question is:

1. Anyone know any moving company that is reliable, available in short notice and reasonably priced (although considering the short notice, it might be impossible).

2. As it is a public holiday on Monday and considering the short notice, in case if we can't get movers which means we will have to change all other plans and will have some other impacts (including financials) - will this be covered by our insurance? (I have a legal insurance and house insurance).

Many thanks in advance for your input!
