removal companies geneva -vaud

Hello all

I will shortly be moving from Geneva to canton vaud. I am looking for a removal company who could come and pack up my apartment and move us, so if anyone has any good recommendations of moving companies I would be really glad to hear! I have searched on here already btw, although most of the companies mentioned seem to be for moves around zurich, so Id be very glad to hear of any good ones up here!

Thanks very much!

Re: removal companies geneva -vaud

As you mentioned, this topic has been covered before and the names of many removal firms are mentioned in the threads you've already found. I wouldn't worry too much about whether delivery is being made to the German or French speaking parts of Switzerland. If they go to Zürich, they'll go to Vaud as well. :-)

Re: removal companies geneva -vaud

Ignore me, I thought you were looking for an international service... I just re-read your message and realised that you're looking for a local Swiss service... you've probably sussed out already that "removals" is "déménagements" and that there are plenty of companies listed in the phone book.

I don't know of any firms to recommend, I only know (from a colleague's experience) that you should contact quite a few companies and get them to visit you to see what work is involved (some don't want to and just want to give a price based on the number of rooms), and they should provide you with written quotes so that you can compare prices, as well as the 'feeling' that you have for each company.. i.e., is this somebody that you trust to pack up your personal belongings?

elizabeth delaune has made some interesting contributions
Re: removal companies geneva -vaud

Hello,

well, you can have a look on the website tammarotransports.com. It's a friend of mine, called Enrico Tammaro, and he's working for big companies like Novartis, Natuzzi, etc. I've done all my moves with him (from Vaud to Tessin) and I'm always happy with it.
If you call him, tell him you know Elizabeth Delaune, maybe you'll have a special price too.
Have a nice day, BR, Elizabeth

Hi,
We actually used Tammarotransports as recommend by someone previously.
We moved from Lausanne to Bern.
Their price was comparable to other quotes we received.
They had been recommend to us by a friend as well.
Everything went smooth for us.

Re: removal companies geneva -vaud

Moving from Aigle to Portugal, I went with Tammaro Transports as recommended by this thread. I am sad to say that their standard of service has considerably dropped since the last post.

1) They did not gather the documents required at the border, even though we had specifically asked if any required. They had stated that none were needed.

As a result, our belongings could not pass for several days, the transport vehicle parked in an unsecured lot for that whole period.

They finally allowed the driver passage after we had to personally head up there (2 hours' drive) and sort things out by paying 2k Euros guarantee until the required documents were delivered... This, by the way, included a full itinery..

2) They did not wrap/pack our items appropriately. There were heavy cartons loaded onto cartons labelled 'fragile'. Electronic equipment had been simply chucked into boxes without appropriate wrapping/cushioning. A few items of furniture / lamps had been damaged beyond repair, as well as several decorative items.

3) They did not provide a checklist of cartons/boxes that were delivered, which they were supposed to have done to ensure the checklist tallied with the one they had made when they were packing/picking up.

We went with Sterling when we moved from UK to Switzerland, had the same furniture, asked for the same service (full packing/delivery), and had 10x better service.

Never again.
