Removals to Switzerland – Frequently Asked Questions

by MatthewMoving to Switzerland

How much does it cost to move from the UK to Switzerland with MyCheapRemovals?

Removal costs depend on two main factors: the volume of a consignment and the distance. In terms of volume, we consider mainly two types of removals:

    • small (5 and 10 cubic meters of volume)
    • large – 15, 20 and 30 cubic meters.

So, for example, if you are thinking about moving from London to Zurich, you’ll be looking at £1049 for a small removal (5 cubic meters – part load ) or if you decide to move the content of a house – min. 15 cubic meters, prices will start from £2279.
Another popular route for removals to Switzerland:
Godalming UK to Geneva – small removal option starting from £1049, large removal options – from £2289.

How long does it take for my belongings to arrive in Switzerland?

The time frame for your goods to arrive when you move from the UK to Switzerland depends on your chosen volume option.
The quickest delivery option would be large removal, where we will use a dedicated van or lorry, so receiving your goods within 24 hours of loading time is possible.
Since the UK and Switzerland are not members of the EU additional procedures are implemented, which may affect this time.
If you choose the “small” removal option, which is a shared service where your belongings will travel with other customers’ goods, the time could be extended to up to 3 days, however, as we are very busy in MyCheapRemovals it is easy for us to combine deliveries and make your belongings in shorter time. Our customer service team will happily answer any questions in this regard.

I’m moving to Switzerland – what documents will I need?

When you move from the UK to any European country with MyCheapRemovals there are standard documents required for customs clearance:
Inventory list – list of items with their dimensions, weight and value (for insurance purposes)
A copy of your ID/passport
Proof of destination address (current bank statements or credit/debit card statement, current utility bills, rental contract, storage contract etc),
Proof of living in the previous address for the last 12 months (council tax bill, utility bill, payslip, job contract, tax return)
Filled-in 18.44 Form or “Customs clearance of household effects in connection with household removal” – this document will be attached to the quotation email
Please hand in the original document to the driver on collection

What are the living costs in Switzerland in comparison to the UK?

Long story short – the United Kingdom is 36.8% cheaper than Switzerland.
The cost of living in Switzerland is high but provides access to one of the world’s highest life qualities. As well as accommodation, food prices in Switzerland are also steep. The costs of eating out is Switzerland are higher than in other European cities, especially in Zurich and Geneva.

Can I move to Switzerland with my pet?

In a nutshell – yes, but there are a few things that need to be sorted:
Cats and dogs must be immunized against rabies at least 21 days before travel;
they must be at least 90 days old at the time of immunization.
Please note that the rabies vaccination for pets travelling to the EU + Switzerland must be greater than 21 days old and less than 1 year old at the time of travel.
