Removals to Interlaken

Interlaken is a part of the Oberland administrative region in the Interlaken-Oberhasli District in the Swiss canton of Bern. Situated on the Bödeli, alongside the Aar River that flows between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, the town represents an important and famous tourist attraction of the Swiss Alps, in the Bernese Oberland region. Being the major transport gateway to the mountains and lakes of this region, transport routes were developed to the east and west alongside the lakes and to the south into the mountains along the Lütschine river.

The mountains of the Jungfrau region, including the Jungfrau, (4,158 m- 13,642 ft), the Mönch (4,107 m- 13,474 ft) and the Eiger (3,970 m- 13,020 ft) present a great interest to the mountaineers, and a sequence of connecting mountain railways gives access to the Jungfraujoch the highest point in Europe reachable by train. To the north of the town, the Harded Kulm (1,322 m- 4,337 ft) and to the south, the Schynige Platte (2,076 m- 6,811 ft) show amazing views of the higher mountains.

There are boat trips operating on the lakes Thun and Brienz, the lakeside town Brienz being the starting point for Switzerland’s last remaining steam operated mountain railway, the Brienz-Rothorn railway.

Another attraction in Interlaken is an amusement park, called Jungfrau Park. Situated to the south of the town, it was originally opened as Mystery Park, a paranormal-based theme park, closed in 2006 because of financial difficulties and re-opened in 2009.

The Jungfrau Marathon starts in September in Interlaken.

The Unspunnenfest festival exhibiting traditional Swiss culture and hosting competitions of Steinstossen (stone put), Schwingen (wrestling) and yodelling takes place every twelve years in Interlaken and the neighbouring communities of Matten and Wilderswil.

Preparing for the Move to Switzerland

If you’re moving to Switzerland you’re probably overwhelmed by all the arrangements that have to be made, but as long as you know the steps you need to take it doesn’t have to be that difficult.

The most important point you need to remember is to be prepared. If you leave everything until the last minute you’re liable to have left things off the list, so you need to plan in advance and get started early as there are plenty of things you need to do before you can even think about moving to Switzerland.

You’re also going to need to consult the experts, as trying to do everything on your own can be more hassle than it’s worth. Solicitors will be essential to consult as they’ll be able to help with the buying and selling of your home and will often be able to advise on issues such as visas or residency papers, so never underestimate how much value they can bring.

Other experts you’ll definitely have to contact if you’re moving to Switzerland will be removals companies. This is the only way you can ensure that all of your possessions will find their way to their new home, as trying to move everything yourself will be largely impossible. And, if you’re looking for a professional removals company, why not come to us here at Europe Remove?

These are just a few ways that you can make moving to Switzerland as stress-free as possible. As long as you’re prepared and consult the relevant professionals there’s no need to worry, and you can start your new life on a high note safe in the knowledge that everything has been taken care of.

A Smooth Move to Switzerland

If you’re thinking of moving to Switzerland, there are a number of points you need to remember if you want to make the transition as smooth as possible. Here are just a few of them.

•    Make sure that your housing arrangements are sorted as soon as possible. That applies to both your new home and your old one, as most of us won’t be able to consider moving to Switzerland until everything’s tied up back home.

•    Never leave your visa or residency arrangements until the last minute. These can often take time to arrange, and you don’t want to get over there without everything being properly sorted out.

•    Don’t trust high street banks if you want to get the best conversion rates. You’re bound to have to watch the pennies when you first move abroad, so make sure you get the best exchange rates possible by shopping around or going to a broker.

•    Consult the professionals. You’ll need the help of solicitors as well as removals services, such as us here at Europe Remove, to make sure moving to Switzerland is as stress-free as possible.

Moving to a different country is never without its surprises along the way. However, it can be surprising for some to learn that the choice of removal company is an extremely important aspect of the whole transition, and requires a lot of consideration. If you are moving to Switzerland, be sure to contact Europe Remove.

We specialise in cheap door-to-door, fully insured removals services catered for each and every customer. For peace of mind and some considerable discounts, make us your first port of call for convenience.

Switzerland, Removals And Storage

Switzerland is one of the jewels of Europe, with the Alps and a huge diversity of climates and different types of landscapes, it truly is one of the most remarkable and beautiful places to live on Earth. Switzerland is also a magnet for skilled workers and tourists with a robust economy and a very high Human Development Index (HDI). It has the highest wealth per adult in the world, which is partly why it is so attractive. With a population of only around 8 million it is also remarkably culturally diverse. Bordering Germany, Italy, Austria, Liechtenstein and France it has 4 official languages and invariably attracts many visitors from the neighbouring countries as well as a wide variety of tourists.We can provide fantastic removals to Switzerland that can enable you to focus more on the country you are going to become a part of.

Zurich is a world renowned city with all of the modern facilities you could want. It is a beautifully historic place with the picturesque the Alps in the distance. We can provide removals to Zurich at prices that are scaled to what you will be transporting. If you have only a few boxes, our prices will reflect that, and you won’t be unnecessarily charged more as if you were transporting a lot more. The transport will utilise the Eurotunnel and then travel by road to North-Central Switzerland where Zurich is located. Our vehicles have European breakdown cover which, if there is a breakdown, will get us back up and running as soon as possible. Our aim is to be on time for you at your new doorstep so you can take advantage of your belongings as soon as possible.

Of course many people who are moving over such a long distance require some temporary storage space. At Europe Removals we have you covered and can offer you Long and Short Term Storage for 2 weeks for all customers regardless of whether you want it before or after the move. Unlike many removals and storage companies we provide you with a Storage Calculator which can very quickly allow you to total all of the different types of furniture and belongings that you may wish to store. This must be a very thorough and thought-out process on your behalf to ensure that you don’t store something that you are going to need through the storage time.

We can also offer you long term storage options if you are going to be in Switzerland for a temporary period and wish to sell or move out of your current property in the meantime. Being able to keep everything in a safe, reliable and non-damaging place will allow you to completely forget about it all until you are ready to use it all again. Our Storage Calculator is split into different types of furniture holdings including by room. Your lounge furniture naturally differs from that in your kitchen and bathroom, so we’ve separated it to allow you to think clearly about each room. We can store almost anything you want – even motorbikes.
