I'm moving out...Truck needed!!

Hi everybody!
I'm about to move from my room in Bucheggplatz (Zürich), to a new flat (just 10 min with the car...)
I have a bed, armchair and a desk to move...
Can any of you suggest me a rent company, or a way to have a truck for a few hours?
Is it complicated?
Thanks for the tips!!

Check in the "Jobs Wanted" section of the Market Place here on the forum, there are a few threads from folks offering "Man with a Van" - many of them with good comments from other EF members whom they've helped.

I used a guy who advertised on here called Gregory and he was excellent. I don't remember how much it was exactly, but it was very reasonable and he was very nice and helpful. I don't know if he is still doing it, but his contact details were posted here:
Man with Van

Otherwise, you could rent from mobility

Look up van rental companies and you can hire vans for a few hours, half a day, daily, whatever the company offers. We did that for some of our d-i-y move last year. Doesn't get you a man to help as well though.
