Sweets, Art, and Carnival – Basel: City of Parades


Basel is situated next to one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe, the Rhine. The city is famous for its “Basler Läckerli”, the traditional biscuits. With their unique ingredients, such as honey, nuts, candied fruits, and spices, the cookies are a pleasure. If one moves to the northern part of Switzerland, one shouldn’t just enjoy the “Läckerli” but also the relocation. MOVU will help you to find the best moving company and will guarantee you more than just quality and reasonable prices. The moving companies in Basel can convince you with their traffic safety and local competence. The fixed price guarantees that you won’t pay more than agreed on and that you can be certain that you’re not being tricked. Moreover, our Move Captains are available for your questions and problems and will negotiate between you and the moving company. They’ll also look after you during the relocation.



What’s worth seeing in Basel are certainly the Tinguely Museum and Tinguely’s artworks that can be admired in public spaces. They are complex, weird, not easy to interpret, but still fascinating. While art in Basel might look complicated, MOVU can realize an uncomplicated and easy relocation. It’s enough to simply fill out one online inquiry. Within 24 hours you’ll get 5 offers with fixed prices from different moving companies for free, so that you can compare them online. You can benefit from the ratings from previous customers. Choose the preferred moving company and book it only with one click. You don’t need to worry about the insurance, multiple requests and house visits, unclear hourly wages, and overpriced moving companies.



If you ask the Swiss how Basel is different from other cities, then the answer will be the Soccer club Basel. In April 2016, the club was the first one since the introduction of the Super League to shoot 1’000 goals. We from MOVU were able to accompany 10’000 moves and final cleanings with our moving companies in the last two years. Because of that, we were able to improve our service and are sure, that we will find a suitable solution for every customer. So, how about a city tour while we handle your move?
