Moving apartment. Need help with transportation
 
Hi.

I am moving into my new flat at the end of this month. However I need to find a truck to load my stuff in. Any suggestions for companies where I can get best possible rates for hiring a truck? or should I just go with a transporter company?? I have already spent quite a lot of money to have my old apartment cleaned out and I dont wish to get screwed anymore by
cleaning/transportation companies etc.

please let me know
Thanks
Baris

how much stuff do you have? Certain companies rent vans to a certain size and no larger you see....

my current apartment is just about 70m2 with 3 rooms. I dont have that much of stuff to move around. I will sell most of the furniture anyway since I have ordered brand new for my new home. It will be pretty easy to move my stuff.

If you, or someone you know are members of www.mobility.ch this is a very cheap way to rent a truck for a few hours.

www.mobility.ch have some vans that are relatively cheap, then. Mercedes Vito is one of their vehicles.

Do you think the Vito will be enough to move furniture ??

The person with the membership is the one who has to drive the car. So what you are really saying is: is there anyone on the forum who wants to help me move house...

I'm quoting myself in case you have me on ignore.

Do please tell - what furniture do you need to move and in what timescale? Telling me you have a 70m2 apartment frankly means bog-all to me.

Beds? Wardrobes? Other things?

Re: Moving apartment. Need help with transportation
 
okay.
I am gonna move.

2 large wardrobes (2.5m long each but both of them will be disassembled)
2 large glass office tables
2 medium/small glass tables
A set of TV, DVD etc. electronics
lots of kitchen stuff, lamps and all the small things.

I am trying to sell my sofa set, a garden table and seats.

I had a short look at mobility.ch
They ask for 70CHF for 4 months trial membership.
The truck costs aprox. 120 CHF for 9 hours and 100kms (one day).
total would be 190 CHF for one day.. hmmmm

Have you ever shopped at Migros in your time here? It's their "loyalty" card...

I've lots of experience with Unirent, (Nordstrasse, ZH) excellent prices - better than Mobility - and good range of vehicles.

Hi,
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.

Greenhill - you failed to mention the company name!

Re: Moving apartment. Need help with transportation
 
I got this number from a friend and i never really ask the company name :confused: . I will try to find the name of the company next week. If somebody need there services then just dial this number as they speak German and English.
