Costs for a move

Kosten für einen Umzug

Would you like to know the cost of moving? But feel overwhelmed with all the things to consider and know, then feel free to read our text with some tips and tricks on how to move to your new home easily and quickly with the least possible effort.

We will show you the costs, which you need to consider, with the different variants of how a move can be done.

Cost of moving with your own muscle power

First, of course, pack everything you want to take with you, this is important to see in advance whether you may need to rent a car or a van. For a van you have to calculate between 70-130 CHF for half a day of use. On the weekends you have to count with most providers even with surcharges of 5-20 CHF. However, this does not include the equipment, often money is required if you want equipment such as lashing straps. Such auxiliary material is needed to secure the load, with a good securing damage can be avoided. In addition to these direct costs, fuel must also be refueled, which can be quite a bit, depending on the distance and vehicle.

In addition, there is the salary of helpers, if you want to get some to support you. In Switzerland you have to calculate about 50 CHF per hour for a helper plus possibly food or a small tip. In addition to the direct costs, the indirect costs must also be taken into account, so each of the helpers must take time to help you with the move. Also you yourself have to take a day or depending on the size of the apartment even several days off and then earn no money, or spend your vacation not with relaxation but physically tiring work.

For a move that lasts one day and where a lot of furniture has to be moved, the costs are a bit higher, because you have to pay other prices for the rental car/van and for the helpers.

From the moment when a moving van is included, which is the size of a transport, other sums are also charged for the helpers. Then for an apartment from a size of 3 rooms an hourly rate of 240-300 CHF is valid, but here the costs are calculated on 2 persons/helper. Depending on the size of the apartment, the cost flat rate is also correspondingly higher.

Cost of moving with professionals

The third and last variant is to let the whole thing be done without any stress by a moving company, which then independently takes care of the transporter, dismantles and moves the furniture at your place and then reassembles it in the new apartment/house. This is probably the variant that in the end many would like to choose, since you do not have to stress and chaos toutet itself. Also, the possibility of accidentally breaking something because you have not paid enough attention would thus be done. This can save you from high new purchase and repair costs.

Various factors influence the cost of a move. The number of rooms is one factor. In addition, of course, it also depends on how far apart the two locations of your new and your old home. In addition, two other decisive factors are the quantity, i.e. how many cubic meters and how many helpers are needed. This can then cause the price to rise or fall again.

And of course one more thing must not be forgotten, the food and/or the tip for the workers. Depending on your preferences, you should provide something to eat and drink for them or give them a tip in advance so that they can buy food for lunch. In Switzerland one calculates there gladly with approximately 40-50 CHF for two persons.

We hope we can be of some help to you and give you some idea of the costs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will help you as much as possible.
