Furniture Removals to Switzerland

This post will take a closer look at our process for furniture removals from the UK to Switzerland. Then, we’ll take a look at some of the reasons why you should choose Schepens for furniture removals.


Furniture Removals to Switzerland — Our Process

Schepens is a family-owned company that has been performing furniture removals to Switzerland for almost 100 years.  Because we have been performing removals to this destination for so long, we have perfected our furniture removals process. We take great pride in the efficiency, safety, and reliability of our removals. 

All removals to Switzerland are carried out by talented removers who are trained to British Association of Removers standards. These standards cover everything from the quality of packing materials used to the number of contingency and security plans that must be in place. By using a company approved by the British Association of Removers, you can be sure that your furniture removal will be carried out professionally, safely, and securely.

Our process for furniture removals from the UK to Switzerland includes the following steps:

Initial client meeting and quotation for all furniture removals to Switzerland

The first step in the removals process involves Schepens meeting with the client to gather some details. This meeting is carried out by one of our talented move coordinators. They are very experienced removers who have managed hundreds of house removals from the UK to Switzerland. Some of the questions they will ask include:

  • What is the precise destination for the cargo?
  • What are your preferred departure and arrival dates?
  • How many pieces of furniture do you wish to move?
  • Do you have any highly valuable pieces that require additional security?
  • Are their any unusual pieces which are very heavy, fragile or unwieldy?
  • Are there access issues for either the destination or departure location?
  • Would you like Schepens to pack your cargo for you?
  • Do you require cargo storage?
  • Would you prefer to have a dedicated container or a shared container?

The move coordinator may ask to measure some of your furniture and other possessions. Unless you have a substantial amount of cargo, this initial meeting can be performed very quickly — in some cases it can be performed over the phone or via email. All consultations for furniture removals to Switzerland are 100% free and completely obligation free.

After a few days, you will receive a comprehensive Switzerland removals quote that clearly explains all of the information relating to the move — the departure date, the delivery window, the items being moved, the cargo insurance plan, any additional services you have purchased and the total cost. Unlike many other removal companies, we don’t have any hidden costs.  The total cost on the quote is all you will ever pay.


Taking advantage of our professional packing service

It is crucial that your possessions be correctly packed for the journey to Switzerland. If you are unsure about how to box up smaller items or protect your furniture, you can take advantage of the Schepens packing service

Our removers will pack your possessions for you, ensuring that each item is adequately protected for the move to Switzerland. When you use this service, Schepens supply all of the necessary packing materials, including packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape, corrugated cardboard and boxes. Our packing service can save you many hours and ensures your cargo is ready for the long journey to Switzerland.

The Schepens furniture packing process

All furniture removals performed by Schepens are done in accordance with  British Association of Removers standards.  All Swiss removals from the UK and elsewhere are performed with very high-quality packing materials, including 200 grade cardboard boxes.

Our team uses specific procedures for wrapping fragile items like plates, cutlery, wine bottles, and glasses.  These techniques have been proven to keep delicate items safe during long trips.  Smaller items are typically wrapped using packing paper and/or bubble wrap, then carefully placed into boxes.  Some of the steps that we take to protect furniture include:

  • We identify furniture with fragile surfaces and cover those surfaces with layers of thick plastic sheet, cardboard and/or bubble wrap. 
  • Particularly delicate accessories like porcelain or glass handles may be removed so they are not damaged during the journey
  • Corrugated cardboard, moving blankets or plastic is applied to timber to reduce the risk of it being scratched
  • Fragile pieces like mirrors or furniture made from glass is wrapped with bubble wrap and plastic.  We often place cardboard edges on mirrors to protect them from chips. 
  • Plastic is used to protect upholstered furniture

The entire process is closely monitored by one of our move coordinators.  They will make sure your furniture is adequately protected before being packed into the vehicle in the correct order.
