There will be a fair amount.

50" Panasonic Plasma TV
42" Panasonic PLasma TV
2 Xbox Slims plus games
Aircon Unit
Sky HD setup
Mahogany Dining table and four chairs
Microwave, Canon printer, George Forman Grill, Bedroom clothes cabinets, lawnmower, hedgetrimmer, Dyson hoover, Carpet cleaner hoover...etc etc.

I'll list it all closer to the move.

And both my cars.
Yeah, this was the part that sucked the most for us too.
I liked all of the toys and widgets that we collected whilst we were in Switzerland. I am still trying to replace some of them.

You will miss the window shutters most of all.

Not to mention that I didn't remember us Americans being so loud.

Good Luck, and where are you going to settle?

Re: I'm Leaving Switzerland

I do not know what that game is.
But you can contact some companies like Credit Suisse, ABB and i can tell you other that get you a tenant quick.

For example in my company 4 or 5 ppl arrives every week.

Re: I'm Leaving Switzerland

Good luck!

A friend of mine moved back last year, made a scouting trip for a couple of weeks before moving and bought a house: with a down payment that might get you into a small apartment in the most lost backwoods of the Jura mountains he got a 4 bedroom two story house with detached two story garage/workshop in a nice metropolitan area of Ohio and ended up with a monthly payment of 170USD. . I imagine Florida is similar. Dammit why do I like Switzerland so much!?

The hoover is only a few moths old so it won't be giveaway cheap although the prices won't be extortionate

The items won't be available until the beginning of August. I'll make a proper for sale thread soon.

In other news, Kevlegs was recently photographed trying to make a run for the border over the Bodensee, with EFers grabbing his belonging as he went...

Kev, I suggest you board up and get some shotguns.

I see hordes massing up to get your stuff.

Ack, Florida. Wish you luck with the heat, humidity, flying roaches and the economy. But there's brown sugar on tap there, I hear
