Furniture Removals to Lausanne — Our Process
Schepens is one of the most experienced European removals companies on the planet! We have been helping clients move to Lausanne for decades and are very fond of this part of Switzerland.
Over the years, we have developed very stringent processes for the handling, packing and processing of cargo. These processes improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of our furniture removals to Lausanne.
All of the European removals performed by Schepens are carried out in accordance with the standards set out by the British Association of Removers standards (BAR). BAR standards cover everything from the handling of cargo through to contingency plans and insurance. Our removers are trained to adhere to these standards, so you know your cargo will be handled professionally. The Schepens process for European furniture removals to Lausanne includes the following steps:
Step 1 — Initial client meeting
The removals process begins with an initial meeting with the client. One of our move coordinators will perform the meeting, after arranging a time that is convenient for you. For smaller removals, the meeting can be carried out via online or over the phone. Larger removals sometimes require a face-to-face meeting so the move coordinator can accurately assess your requirements.
The move coordinator will ask you a number of questions during the meeting, including:
- When would you like to schedule your removal?
- What is the pickup location and the delivery destination?
- How much cargo will be moved?
- Do you have any valuable pieces that require additional security during the journey?
- Is any of your cargo extremely heavy, fragile or unwieldy?
- Are there access issues for either the destination or departure location?
- Would you prefer to have a dedicated container or a shared container?
- Would you like us to pack your cargo for you?
- Would you like to use the Schepens cargo storage service?
Your move coordinator may ask to inspect some pieces to determine if they pose any unique challenges. The entire meeting will be performed fairly quickly unless you have a large amount of cargo.
Stage 2 — Quotation
Once your move coordinator has all of the information they require, they will prepare a detailed quote. This quote will clearly list the services included in the removal, the delivery window, and the cargo being moved. It will also list the total price for the move. This will be the total cost for a door-to-door removal. Unlike some of our competitors, there are no hidden extras. All quotes for Switzerland removals are 100% free and 100% obligation free.
Stage 3 — Our professional packing service
Schepens offer clients the use of an optional professional packing service. When you choose this service, we will box up all of your smaller possessions, including clothing, cutlery, and crockery.
There are a few advantages to using this service. It will save you an incredible amount of time and speeds up the completion of the removal. It will also ensure your cargo is adequately protected for the journey to Switzerland.
If you have opted to use this service, our removers will make arrangements to visit your home and pack your possessions. In some cases, packing may be completed on the day of the removal, but occasionally it will be scheduled before moving day.
Schepens provides all of the packing materials when you select this service, including packing paper, boxes, packing tape, and bubble wrap.
Stage 4 — Your furniture is prepared and loaded
The next stage involves preparing your furniture to be loaded onto the removals truck or container. We use very specific procedures to ensure different types of furniture is adequately protected for the journey to Lausanne. Some of the steps that we take to protect furniture include:
- Fragile pieces of furniture are covered with layers of bubble wrap, cardboard and/or plastic to protect them during the journey to Lausanne.
- Some pieces may be partially disassembled if it improves the safety of the removal
- Soft timber surfaces may be covered with corrugated cardboard and plastic o prevent scratches.
- Mirrors and glass tables are protected with thick layers of cardboard to prevent chipping or cracking
- Plastic may be placed on upholstered furniture to protect it from dust and water if being placed into storage
Your dedicated move coordinator will oversee the entire process, ensuring your cargo is safely and efficiently dealt with.
