We need help moving in Zurich - can you help?

Ok we are not literally asking people to help us move, however if you are bored on 27 Sept, please contact me..

I am actually writing to see if anyone can suggest a small local moving company or if you know of anyone with a van/truck willing to assist us with our move in Zurich from Wollishofen to Niederdorf Strasse.

We have NO furniture, only 20 to 25 regular boxes and 4 to 5 wardrobe boxes and a TV along with luggage. We have received a quote from Pakipex and Allied however these quotes seem very unreasonable since we are not asking for assistance packing only the simply task of picking up the boxes from our current flat in Wollishofen and moving it to our new flat on Niederdorf Strasse.

Any suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advance.

Although I cant recommend a company, I have just moved and simply hired a van from mobility and moved the stuff ourselves, it just took a few trips, if you have any friends to help load the van then you can do it a lot quicker and save yourself so much money...

Labour is expensive here. Get a transit and do it yourselves slowly over a weekend.

Cost us about 1200chf to move a LOT of furniture including a piano, it took a good day.

If you are talking a few boxes they'll probably do a good price.

Hmmm, yes, that's a good word "tips", you hit the nail on the head with that one. How about free beer? c'mon if you expect free help, then at least make the offer enticing.

In the words of Andy Dufresne: "A man working outdoors feels more like a man if he can have a bottle of suds. That's only my opinion, Sir."

One line that probably didn't feature in Shawshank Redemption was:

Please help me move my stuff for nothing so I don't have to pay anyone to do it.

Hestia, check the 'man with a van' thread; it should cover what you're looking for...
