Re: Has anyone used UBR Umzug for their move ?

Don't know about them, but an someone I know recently recommended Kaylan Umzug.

http://try-dot-ch.blogspot.com/2011/...or-kaylan.html.


For an apartment that's 25m2 this is what they said:




Ihren Angaben entsprechend würden wir für einen speditiven Umzug ein angemessenes Team einsetzen.
Weiter gehe ich in der Annahme dass der Auftrag inkl. der Überfahrt innerhalb eines Arbeitstages (7h) erledigt ist.

Wir offerieren wir Ihren Umzug, mit 2 Zügelmänner, Zügelwagen (25m3) und Versicherung.
Der Stundenansatz beträgt dann CHF. 130.- ich schätze den Aufwand (Einpacken-Demontage-Transport-Montage und Einräumen mit eigenen Kartons) auf 7 Stunden = 910.-
Die Reinigung erledigen wir mit Übergabegarantie zu pauschal 500.-

Total Angebot: CHF 1'400.-


Hope it helps!

Hi,
I used UBR Umzug and I would warn you to use them.
The reason is that the team of them made damages on the house and accepted that they will pay the correction but that never happened.
They are "friendly" on the phone and say everytime that they will transfer the money to your bank account but that will never happen. Since nearly one year!!!

So be careful to make a movement with that company: UBR Umzüge!!!

Re: Has anyone used UBR Umzug for their move ?

Hi

I can also only warn you to use them.

They are very unprofessional und unreliable.

We made an appointment for the delivery of the boxes, but they never appeared. Then, on the next appointment, they came 3h late. They never suggested us to use an good transport elevator, so we didn't order it. But it turned out, that the effort was double without it. They were also not in the position to order one ad-hoc. They couldn't complete on one day, so they came again on the next day. The next day, the agreements made before were suddenly not valid anymore. They assembled a shelf wrong which I only saw after they left. So we had to do the effort twice.
When we made an appointment to fetch the boxes, I phoned to confirm with then and suddenly the driver did not have time. On the new time, he did not appear.

So, I can only give one advice: save yourself a lot of troubles and anger an hire somebody else.

Its seems so many people have bad experiences with moving companies. If you want a really good moving company I can recommend Keller Swiss Group. They have been around for 150 years so they must be doing something right! My husband works there and they are really focused on quality and service. www.kellerswissgroup.ch

Re: Has anyone used UBR Umzug for their move ?

I came accorss this site and will give it a try for my upcoming move and cleaning: http://www.ofri.ch/

Basically, you put in what you have, put detail about your move and cleaning, where you are moving and you will be getting quotes from multiple vendors.

This site also allows for soliciting bids on other stuff.

Will report back how it works out.

I've also sent offers to the 2 places just posted above.

To get an accuracte quote you need a survey. Any company worth dealing with has a surveyor who comes to your home. Same for cleaning firms, they need to see exactly what needs to be cleaned.

Of course..had moved before here in CH. The description of what is to be moved is quite detailed and I'm asking for flat all inclusive rates. Received several bids and the companies bidding put their comments as to what is included and also have ratings of customers who used them. There is place for them to make comments, call me etc in case they have questions. Once I select a bid they are to put in writing. Let's see how this develops.
