The transfer of residence to Switzerland is the most important condition for your household effects, personal collections, animals or your car to be imported into Switzerland duty-free. The imported items must also have been used by you personally for at least 6 months and they must continue to be used by you after importation.
Our relocation services also include planning the optimal transport route. In the event that you first move into a furnished apartment in Bern, our moving company will take care of the storage of your currently unneeded household goods. In the course of planning the move, it should also be decided whether and which items have to be moved at all. Often a new acquisition of many things is cheaper than the transport. Of course, our experienced movers will also take care of the proper disposal. If your removal goods are ultimately limited to a manageable load, then we recommend that you have them transported by inexpensive additional loads.
At Geuer you get the all-round carefree package. We pack, secure, assemble, dispose and reassemble furniture in a new place. If you wish, you can also order services yourself. You can assemble our service as you need it. Feel free to talk about your best options during the consultation with our salesman.
