"By far the best"

Out of all the European removals companies, I have used in my life and I have lived in many different places, from Dubai to London to Paris your service was by far the best. Your service was always punctual, and professional, and took a lot of the stress out of moving, which is one of life’s most stressful experience.
Noor Kadhim
Manager, International Chamber of Commerce

They are the best case of what a service business should be like. From the move planner to the people that show up to remove your things, they are the only example to emulate for customer service, price and care for their clients…”

Additionally, Switzerland's largest city is situated in a scenic area with many rivers and lakes, a beautiful landscape, and convenient proximity to the Swiss Alps. Needless to say, Zurich has become one of the top destinations for expatriation from the UK and other parts of the world.

As Switzerland's financial centre, Zurich is ideal for ex-pats looking to work in banking and insurance. The economy is also strongly service-oriented, with over three-quarters of all employees working in the service industry. Tourism, aerospace, IT, engineering, health and life sciences, and the creative industries also offer plenty of job opportunities to those looking to work in Zurich. There are also vacancies for teaching English as a second language. Various multinational companies, including Google, BMW, Fiat, Ford, Renault, Volvo, Bayer, Pfizer, and PWC, have offices in this city and are also the biggest employers. The best part is ex-pats can expect a good remuneration package that will likely afford them a high standard of living.

The housing market in Zurich is in high demand, which has led to rising rental and buying costs. Renting is more prevalent in Zurich, with a one-bedroom apartment in the city centre costing about 1,995/month CHF. A three-bedroom apartment goes for about 3,680/month CHF. The good news is Zurich has a range of neighbourhoods and nearby villages to suit every budget and taste.

Geneva is among the top ex-pat destinations where a high quality of life and employment success are within everyone's reach. Being located at the centre of Europe makes it accessible to other premier European cities. With beautiful landscapes, multicultural communities, economic stability, pleasant climate, excellent infrastructure, and better healthcare, there's no denying that living in this French speaking part of Switzerland is a dream come true for many.

Geneva offers endless job opportunities for ex-pats living here. As a significant financial centre globally, there are hundreds of banks and financial institutions based here. Ex-pats with experience in the banking and financial services sector and international trade will find plenty of work opportunities. The city's economy is also strongly service-oriented, making tourism and the hotel industry the other major employers. Geneva is also home to several international organisations and agencies, including the UN, WHO, World Trade Organization, Red Cross, etc. The majority of ex-pats are recruited into high-level positions in these organisations. In terms of companies, major corporations like DHL, Cargill International, Ernst and Young, and CarreFour are the biggest employers in this city.

The cost of living in Geneva is pretty high, and the housing market is no exception, making finding a place to live a bit challenging. Most people prefer renting to buying as the latter can be costly. Expect to pay between 1,600 and 2,600 CHF per month for renting a one-bedroom apartment in the city centre. A three bedroom apartment costs 2,800-5,000 CHF per month. Popular neighbourhoods include Les Pâquis, Champel, Cologny, Grottes - Saint-Gervais, and Eaux-vives. Towns and small cities around this city can offer more budget-friendly housing with more space, comfort and quiet. This includes Versoix, Annemasse, and Nyon.

Getting around Geneva is made easy thanks to an extensive and effective public transportation system that consists of trams, buses, and boats. Busses and trams frequently run until about midnight on the weekdays and later on the weekends. They are clean, punctual, and much more affordable than self-driving. You can buy daily, weekly, monthly, and annual tickets, as well as single fares. Be sure to get a Unireso pass for discount prices on your travels. There's also a rail network that connects Geneva to the rest of the country and neighbouring countries.

Geneva's prime location means there's plenty of outdoor activities to take part in during your spare time. Surrounded by the Jura and the Alps, several skiing resorts accommodate any winter sports enthusiasts. Lake Geneva is ideal for swimming, sailing, or simply enjoying the sunshine, while mountains provide excellent hiking opportunities.

Bern houses several multinational corporations and some of the biggest employers are Swisscom AG, the University of Bern, and Swiss Post.

Lausanne is a small city located in Switzerland's French-speaking area on Lake Geneva. Though small, it is widely international and loved by expats for its beautiful vineyard and mountainous and lakeside views. If you are looking for a youthful, historic, and picturesque location with great wine, activities, and food, Lausanne is your destination.

With a developed and robust economy, Lausanne boasts a wide variety of industries. Ex-pats can access great job opportunities in the city's top industries, including food processing, administration, financial services, and publishing. The biggest employers include international corporations such as Nestle, Ernst & Young, Price Waterhouse Coopers, and Siemens, all with headquarters in this city. The Lausanne workforce is multi-lingual, so speaking at least German or French is an added advantage.

Most people in Lausanne rent rather than purchase homes. Consequently, the housing market is very saturated, so getting an apartment can be pretty tricky. It is advisable to get a short-term rental or book a hotel as you explore the area and secure a place to live. Purchasing a house is also expensive since the government started boosting home purchases, which raised their demand. The most popular neighbourhoods include Flon, Vieille Ville, Ouchy, and Sous Gare.

Transport is very extensive and reliable in Lausanne. For public transport, you can choose from metro to buses, trolleybuses, and trains. The electric bus is the primary mode of public transportation. Actually, this is the smallest city globally with its metro system, which has two lines and 30 stations. There is also a railway station with trains connecting Paris, Amsterdam, and Milan daily. If you use the train frequently, purchasing a half-fare card will save you half the cost for every ticket.

Lausanne is famous for being the headquarter of the Olympic Museum. It holds over 10,000 exhibitions that teach about the history of the Olympic Games. Lausanne Cathedral is one of the breathtaking examples of European Gothic architecture. For a peaceful evening stroll and beautiful sunset, visit Ouchy, the port neighbourhood with amazing lakeside life. Don't forget to view Geneva Lake itself. The view from the Sauvabelin Tower is something you will not forget, so carry your camera. Lastly, the L'Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne offer a diverse calendar of rich classic musical events.
