moving companies from UK to Switzerland

I am relocating to Switzerland at the end of February, and I need to move some furniture.
A quick search suggested franceremovals as a good option. I also found vanone that looks interesting.

My question is, since I won't have a place to stay yet, are they generally OK to drop stuff to a storage place?

What kind of documentation is needed? I obviously won't have a B permit until I move there, and my lease in the UK is expiring before that.

Re: moving companies from UK to Switzerland

Britannia did us proud moving Zürich to UK last June with all the Covid related uncertainty. They dropped stuff off at storage in the UK for us with no problem. It occurs to me that it may be cheaper to put in storage in the UK and move when you have somewhere to put stuff.

We used Britannia too, and they were great. We did not need storage though.

that's what we were thinking as well. Only problem is, would someone need to be in the UK when we move stuff to Zurich later on?
I'll try to call Britannia tomorrow as get some quotes.

Find a company, who can pick it up from you before you move and store it themselves until you are ready for them to bring it to Switzerland.

Luker Brothers (google it) do regular UK-Swiss journeys. They can even give you an on-line quote. And they know the paperwork.
