Recommend a moving company, please

Which moving company can you recommend? I will need full packing/unpacking/to take down and put up lots of furniture. We are moving from Switzerland to Honk KOng. We heard that Crown relocations are good, anything else to get a quote from?


Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.
I've used Allied Pickfords for 3 international moves and they were efficient, professional and stress free.

My friends used The Removal Group (Removalgroup.com, based in the UK) to move back from Switzerland to Australia and found them to be cheap and good quality

Also moving to Hong kong and our relocation company is Pakimpex. My husband's company is organizing it for us. They are coming to ours next Thursday for an estimate / quote of what we are taking. If it's a good company I will definitely let the EF members here know!

Re: Recommend a moving company, please

We found www.interdean.com very good.

We've had three furniture deliveries over here using Pickford's (expensive, but Alstom were paying!), Interdean and Crown. All were very good, but I found Interdean the most pro-active when it came to keeping in contact re the move.

Good luck with your move!

We moved from Denmark to Zurich using Crown for all services incl. finding an apartment here, logistics etc. - they come across as professional, reliable and experienced. I can definitively recommend them as a few others in this thread

Re: Recommend a moving company, please

We have used Crown and Interdean. Crown was used between Nz and Oz and we found them to be efficient.

With our move here, Interdean subcontracted to a company in Australia and we had issue after issue with them. They were late arriving, the packing was substandard and we had a lot of damage. Some items that we not unpacked/unwrapped from our NZ move got damaged on our move here.
However, in saying that Interdean at this end were absolutely brilliant. The service they provided was above and beyond my expectations, particularly after the shoddy service we got in Oz.

My advice with Interdean is to check that if they don't have offices in the country you are moving to, then look into who they are subcontracting tthe unpacking to and thoroughly look at their reputation.

Good luck with your move.

Re: Recommend a moving company, please

i am currently as well looking for relocation and I find packimpex and movecorp quite good. If you have only the luggage that is not fragile then it might be cheaper to send it by DHL
