Re: Moving apartment. Need help with transportation

Greenhill - I appreciate you are trying to help, but many people might feel uncomfortable getting someone they don't know to pack all their possessions into a truck and drive it somewhere else. That's the reason why Lob asked you for more details. I can imagine most people would want to check a website or see that it is a real company before phoning and booking. The internet is a place where many scams originate - that's all.

Re: Moving apartment. Need help with transportation

I moved last month from a 4 room to 4.5 room flat with all the stuff I accumulate in last 3 years. I hired a moving company with 100CHF/hour including the van. I asked them to move only the big furniture which is too big for my car. They came in with two short guys (in a big van) and within 4 hours all the stuff is at my new place (about 10 km away).
I fully recomend this company if you want to avoid back aches. There number is 0444510056.
They only move the big things?
Or they also do the packing for the small stuff?
100chf/hr is VERY CHEAP if they do both the above for 2 workers.

The last time I paid 1500chf for 2 movers (including van) for my move.
They provided me with 15 boxes (movers boxes) in which I have to pack my small stuff in. And they move the big stuff like sofa, beds, wardrobes and TV and computer, tables, chairs.
Took us about 1 day.
Distance was about 5km only (driving time counts too).

BTW: Most of these "cheaper and no name company" could be easily foreigners who wants to make a quick buck (some of them are from Eastern European countries) BUT they are totally trustworthy in my view.

Of course you will be stupid to ask them to move your gold ingots.

The first time I moved, I rented a van, asked a few colleagues. But that was a back-breaking exercise, not to mention no one says no, but not everyone is happy to say yes.

Re: Moving apartment. Need help with transportation

Ok, I have now the name and address of this company.

Bertastr. 6
Tel:044 4510056

According to this company they are in the business for 25 years. They charge hourly basis for all type of work that includes packing, transport and cleaning (ubgabe guarantee).

I packed things by myself in movers boxes (got them from my company) and hired them only for moving (boxes and furniture)….They bring all the stuff from 2nd floor (without lift) into the van and unload everything to my new place (EG).
They did a favour at the end by taken all the discarded items/rubbish to the local dump.
The problem I had is to reopen all the boxes again….
