Moving within Zurich - best removal company to use

Hi

We're moving house within Zurich and would like to know who are the best people to use. We have a quote from Crown and I'd like to get another to compare and most of the ones I've seen seem to be international ones

Thanks

Sharon

Re: Moving within Zurich - best removal company to use

Hi

I did - I used Gunstieger Umzug - 08000 86984

One of the guys who moved us was a handyman and spent many hours with us after that building furniture, putting up lights etc etc - I have his number if anyone wants it

Good luck!

Re: Moving within Zurich - best removal company to use

They charge per hour depending on the floor / amount of furniture you are moving. We did the packing ourselves but I think you can get them to help with this as well

We moved a 3 bed appartment

I can't remember the hourly cost but I'll ask my husband if he can - I have a feeling it was about 55chf per man per hour

The handyman was 35chf an hour

http://www.alphatransport.ch/ just moved us and cleaned our new house and our previous apartment. They also took away a lorry load of rubbish.

Fully recommend them for moving and cleaning.

Did they also help with putting the furniture together etc afterwards?

Thanks!

Hello foguang
If you look at the date stamp on Sharon's post, it's from 2007. If you google günstiger Umzug.ch you'll find their website with contact details.

Good luck with your move

Re: Moving within Zurich - best removal company to use

I appreciate this is an old thread - but it came up in the search function.

We have just moved within Canton Zurich, from an apartment to a house, and we can highly recommend the Keller Swiss Group for the removals and cleaning service. The movers were fantastic - very fast, efficient and nothing was damaged at all. The company also arranged the cleaning for us, and this was also excellent - in fact at the check out of the apartment the Property Agent said they had never seen better. Praise indeed!

This is a totally independent recommendation - we were just so pleased that I thought I would share the info - they can also be flexible on pricing, so definitely worth asking them for a quote, and combining the clean/removal made quite a big difference.

Feel free to pm me if you would like more info.

Re: Moving within Zurich - best removal company to use

Kaylan is quite alright but you might want to check if you have a lot valuable stuff. Generally, you want to keep the cost around CHF 150 (or less) per hour for 2 men + van. The only exception would be if you have what I call long-term furniture i.e. stuff that's precious and that you won't be throwing away; in this case you'd want to get very specialised movers.
Who are the movers you've talked to so far?

To move, Kaylan was fine. We had a big, heavy move, lots of stuff. No damage.

Cleaning was another story. Impossible.
