Re: moving advice

Is this your first flit within CH?

You'd probably be best to suck it up and hire a van and get some strong friends to help to horse your load across town... then use any budget you have for moving to pay for professional cleaners to restore your old place to the "brand-spanking-shiny-new" state that the landlord will expect.

You will have to clean things you never knew existed!

If you hire someone to clean ensure that the contract states, that they will come in again to clean (without any further charge) in case the landlord finds things that are not clean.

YES, all the sudden you have to clean things that you seriously did not know existed and no one else before has ever cleaned! But it all depends on what type of person your landlord/estate agency guy is ...

Re: moving advice

I thought it was hilarious when I picked up the keys to my new flat and witnessed the estate agent checking everything that the previous tenant had to clean.

He gave her a bag of items that she had to clean and return to me the next day. She even had to pay for someone to come and clean the stains in between the two pieces of glass in the oven door!

I know where you are coming from. Moving can be a nightmare, but as mentioned by Psyk:

If you have some friends and are able to prepare things in advance (packing etc) then it does not necessarily have to be a nightmare.

We had friends that helped with our move and cleaning (we didn't have the finances at the time to have professional cleaners come in). The guys did the move and we girls did the cleaning. So if you can somehow get some people together, then that is always useful.
