Your journey with us:
Everything starts with our friendly driver’s arrival at your door. He is experienced and specially trained in heavy lifting. He will help you carry all your items to our state of the art van, making sure they are stored safely and neatly inside. Once that’s done, with a cheery wave he’ll set off for Switzerland!
For your peace of mind, we will update you on our progress as we travel, so you are reassured that your items are safe. When we are two hours away, we will phone you, confirming the time we expect to arrive. Two hours later, the same friendly driver will be at your door, ready to help you carry your belongings into your new house. Nothing could be simpler.
How to prepare:
There’s a British Army saying that should be taken to heart by anyone moving house: Proper planning prevents poor performance. To keep your belongings safe and secure, remember to cover or place padding on furniture, and place your loose items in boxes or suitcases.
If you need materials for packing, you can find protective blankets and heavy-duty shrink wrap in our online store.
Documents you’ll need:
Planning for removals to Switzerland is a little different to moving to countries within the EU. There is just one more set of documents you need to fill in. But first let’s look at what’s the same as other countries. Cargo movement/CMR form – like an inventory form, the driver will give this to you on the day of your move. Insurance form – we offer free goods in transit insurance to all our customers; you will be sent a link to this after placing your booking.
Now for the part that’s different. Swiss Customs can be quite strict, and whether you’re of Swiss nationality or not, you’ll need to comply with their customs regulations. This means you must declare in writing that your belongings are not for commercial use (otherwise they will be subject to customs duties and taxes).
Therefore, we recommend you get in touch with your local Swiss Embassy and ask them what forms they need you to fill in for your move. Once they’ve provided you with the forms and you’ve filled them in, you will need to provide us with copies, as our driver will be asked to present them when he reaches the Swiss border.
(Two of the forms will be a letter stating the purpose of your move and a customs clearance of household effects in connection with household removal form. To see a template of this form, click here).
How long does the Removals to Switzerland take to complete?
Your belongings will be there in no time; our driver loads the van, waves you goodbye, and heads straight for Switzerland. The average journey is just 24 hours (from the UK).
- If you reside in Wales or Scotland, it could take 48 hours for delivery.
- If your goods take up less than the full capacity of the removal vehicle (<15 cubic meters), delivery could take up to 5 days. For more details on this please click here.
