Reviews on Reloswiss, Simpsons and Swiss Moving Service AG

Hello

We have been looking into International Relocations Services for our upcoming move from Gossau SG, Switzerland to Motueka, New Zealand.

At this point we have narrowed it down to:

Reloswiss

Simpsons Removals and Storage Ltd

Swiss Moving Service AG

Has anybody dealt with any of these companies for your move? If so, would you mind sharing what your experiences were with them?

We would very much appreciate any info you wish to share. Many thanks

Re: Reviews on Reloswiss, Simpsons and Swiss Moving Service AG

When we moved Switzerland to Aus a couple of years ago, we had quotes from Swiss companies and out of interest I asked a couple of English companies to quote, Guess what, the English companies were cheaper and more used to long distance moves so I gave them the job, who turned up to do the move, one of the Swiss companies who had been subcontracted by the English and quoted me a lot more than the English company. I think it is called Profit making by the Swiss. It pays to shop around.

A comprehensive report on my experience with ReloSwiss moving my two 20ft containers (!) from Switzerland to the USA can be found here.

Of course you can't compare the price mentioned in that post, since the USA is a bit closer than New Zealand and it was a huge load, but the price was just slightly above the mid range of many other quotes for Switzerland -> USA mentioned on this forum.

An update to my post of last year: Meanwhile I found one broken wine glass, and that was entirely my fault because it was in a box that I had packed myself.

In other words: ReloSwiss did a great job at a reasonable price. And besides that, it's located in Gossau SG (!). Simona is just around the corner.

Re: Reviews on Reloswiss, Simpsons and Swiss Moving Service AG

Hi there, it has been a while and I have only been reminded by someone sending me a private message that I had posted on here.

We ended up choosing Reloswiss and were working with Simona Volfschütz. Our move went really well, Simona was amazing, always there to answer questions (and I had a lot of them ) and just being super helpful all around.
We packed all our things on our own and they came and loaded the container and took care of everything else. Including insurance and fees it ended up costing us 9100.- Fr, including total loss insurance for 50´000.- Fr and once it had arrived in Nelson port, they unpacked the container for MAF purposes and then loaded another container and delivered and unloaded it at our house. We were very happy with the whole process, glad it is over, but all went well.

Can highly recommend Simona from Reloswiss

Re: Reviews on Reloswiss, Simpsons and Swiss Moving Service AG

Thanks Kiwi2Swiss. Couldn't agree more. I absolutely love that gal. She is a sweetheart, and she and her folks did a great job in every respect. Besides that I love the sexy Jeep Wrangler she drives.

Now, almost two years after my move from Switzerland to Michigan, my list of damaged goods comprises two cracked wine glasses out of about 50,000 items, and those glasses had been wrapped and boxed by my humble self, so it was my fault.

My experience with ReloSwiss was excellent from A to Z. No complaints at all, just great service, worth every cent of that quite substantial amount I paid.
