Moving vehicle and driver for furniture?

Hello all,

We just recently moved to Zurich and are in the process of getting our apartment stocked with furniture. We found some pieves we'd like to get on Facebook marketplace. However, since we don't have a vehicle we have no way of picking them up. Neither of us has a license either so a simple can rental is not possible.

Any idea how we might be able to transport furniture to our place?

Re: Moving vehicle and driver for furniture?

If you're getting furniture that can be taken apart, or that is not too huge, then buy a little trolley, some good elastic hooks and some ratchet bands, and move the stuff on the public transport. If you take a third person along to lift and change the angle as a trolley could not, you could even move a bed this way. It is amazing what can be done outside of rush-hour, especially if you look up the timetables, first, to ensure that you take, as far as possible, vehicles with no steps, so you can just wheel on the trolley. Source: experience.

Otherwise, have a look at these threads to see if you could contract with one of these people:
