How to prepare for your move to Geneva
Moving internationally can be a very daunting experience if you have never done it before. That is why so many people hiring a professional European removals company like Schepens. Here are some useful tips which can make the removals process much easier!
- Collect some useful information resources
Before you begin the moving process, visit some websites to collect the information necessary to move to Geneva. Some of the best resources include:
- Plan every step of your removal
You can reduce the stress of moving by carefully planning each step of the removal. Create a comprehensive checklist of the tasks that must be completed before the move and tackle them sequentially. Being organised will help you identify any problems early on and calmly deal with them.
- Downsize before you pack anything
Take a close look at the items you own and discard, sell or store anything that is non-essential. By downsizing before your move, you can make the removals process easier and much more affordable.
- Choose your remover as early as possible
Book your removal to Geneva as early as possible to secure your ideal removals schedule. Booking early also gives your remover plenty of time to assess the amount of cargo you have and plan for the removal of any unusual or bulky items that you own.
- Have utilities connected to your new home as early as possible
Have utility services connected to your new home at least a week before you expect to move in. This will give you some time to deal with service provision delays.
- Gather any important items and keep them with you
Create a box with your most important items and keep them with you. This may include tax records, personal identification documents, medical records, rare photographs, keepsakes, jewellery, insurance policies, medications and prescriptions. Clearly label this box of items with writing reminding you to keep it with you during the move.
- Have a single box with the items you require on day one
When you arrive in Geneva you may be exhausted from the move or too busy to immediately unpack your boxes. Create a “day one” box which has all of the essential items you will need in the first couple of days. It should include items like bed linens, cutlery, plates, work items, personal hygiene items, electronic gadgets, and phone chargers.
Find a great school for your children before moving
Switzerland has a very strong education system that is well funded. It delivers educational outcomes better than those in the UK. Some of the best schools in Geneva include:
- School International De Genève
- Bsg :: The British School Of Geneva

- Geneva Business School
