950,- for a 3.5 room apartment in Zürich already sounds cheap to me (when guaranteed for handover)

Cheap may not always be good. You want a company that will do a good job, be present at the handover, and rectify any issues the landlord complains about without being jerks about it.

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

It doesn't seem cheap to me. We hired some cleaning company for final cleaning twice (with guarantee, of course) and paid 650 for 3.5 rooms apt and 850 for 5 rooms apt. I got quotations from 600 to 1200 for my 3.5 rooms apartment, so 950 is something in the middle but not the cheapest, I would say.

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

We just bought a voucher for an agency to clean our apartment (80m2) for CHF 669 which includes a gurantee for the handover.

It was from the deindeal website.

I have sent you a pm with the details. The only catch to it was that it's only redeemable in Bern, Aargau, Lucerne, Zurich and Basel.

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

Cleaning fee depends on the size of the apartment (sq. m.), type of windows, number of bathrooms etc. If you have outer slat blinds (lamellenstoren) it might be quite expensive. We had 3.5 rooms c.a. 100 sq. m. and we paid SFr. 1660. So 950 is not expensive but depends on the apartment you have.

Depends if there any deductions to take into account and agree, if no issues usually within a couple of weeks.

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

Hey folks,
Thanks for the inputs...gives me a good summary of what to expect as we are leaving our home shortly as well
Any suggestions for companies in and around Lausanne please for apartment handover cleaning. Our is a 4.5 and from this thread I gather I need to put aside 1000-1500 CHF for this activity.

Please advise!

Thanks

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

I know this is too late for purposes of this thread but just wanted to leave a recommendation for a wonderful agency I recently used for both moving apartment and for final cleaning: https://www.helvetiatransporte.ch/


They were perhaps not the cheapest, but their quality of work was excellent. They needed minimal supervision and my final handover inspection was quick and breezy. Customer service is communicative and friendly as well.


I'm not connected to them in any way- just a satisfied customer :-)

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

I used https://menagesimple.com/en/

They are not the cheapest option but they are professional and know the standard that is required to pass inspection. They will quote you based on the number of rooms etc.

The last thing you want is the regie to bill you for things that are not right, as they seem to have amazingly expensive service providers. I was charged 200 CHF to replace a generic garden gate key (the kind of thing you get from Jumbo for 10 CHF)..

Re: Apartment handover cleaning company

Does anyone have success stories of self-cleaning? Or is it more or less mandatory to have a professional cleaning service take care of it?
