Van with or without Man required for move from Zurich to Geneva

I will be moving from Zürich to Geneva in 4 weeks and I am looking to transport around 20 boxes (half small, half are tea chest size) to Geneva and then place in storage while I try and find somewhere to live.

I searched the web and found 5 companies that offered such a service and 2 replied with quotes of around 1500 CHF. I asked them how much it would cost to do the same trip to the UK and they replied the same!

Anyway, had the brain wave of hiring a van one way to Geneva instead and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for this. Happy to have a driver included or not.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated!

Re: Van with or without Man required for move from Zurich to Geneva

Hiring a van one-way is probably not going to be that easy, but why not just hire a van in Zurich, do the move, and then drive it back afterwards and take the train back to Geneva? It's not that far after all and will save you a lot of money...

I can't recommend anywhere in Zurich, but I did hire a van for the day in Geneva (actually from their Nyon branch) from Patrick Location which was very reasonable price-wise.
