Shifting, dismantling and refitting

Hi all,
I am very new to switzerland and this would be my house shift in switzerland and i have few questions,

1. I need to buy few basic electric bulbs in the flat which i saw i dont see any electric socket or any existing bulbs. So do i need to buy along with some socket or LED tube light. This would be for living and bed room.?
where can i buy them?

2. I have looked at few used furniture and need to dismantle the bed/cot few boxes and then shift the same to new flat. Is there any agency who can help me in this and usually how much its charged for 4 to 5 KMS?

3. Need some one who can fit the electric items mainly basic electric bulbs.

Is there any one single agency who can do all these. If yes suggest me ones who can give me good service

What you need to buy depends on the situation and what you want. If there are no wires coming out off the ceiling than you are left with lamps with a socket connection.

Ceiling lamps usually aren't connected to the grid by plug. Typically they're directly connected to the wires, you should see a hole or two in the ceiling with wires in different colors that will feed the lamp. Likewise if you intend to have naked bulbs only.

Re: Shifting, dismantling and refitting

Lamps at Ikea start at 10 CHF. Not sure if it also applies to that price level but usually they include the bulb. If it does, and depending on what you buy, a lamp with bulb may be only slightly more expensive than a naked bulb.

Come to think of it, since you'd need a wire with a socket for the naked bulb anyway, a lamp may actually be cheaper.

Not sure how easy you can get to one from Baden, but Ikea is probably the cheapest option, perhaps unless shopping across the border is an possibility for you.

Re: Shifting, dismantling and refitting

There's an Ikea in Spreitenbach.

But with Waldshut an option that's probably the better option anyway. Others will have to provide info on that, or search for "Leuchte kaufen Waldshut" or "Lampe kaufen Waldshut", or similar.

Also, before shopping in Waldshut you should inform yourself about customs regulations and claiming back VAT. Lots of information on that available here.

ETA:
If you expect your annual bill for public transport to be above 100-200CHF you may want to buy a "Halbtax".

Re: Shifting, dismantling and refitting

You could also buy some standing lamps which plug into the wall socket to get you started until you decide if you really need a ceiling light.


Table lamps can also be useful.


Maybe post some pictures of the ceilings in the rooms where you want lights and someone can tell you what you need there.
