Moving and Cleaning Companies in Switzerland: Local and First-Rate

Switzerland enjoys a special status in other countries: small, traditional, expensive and neutral but still with the ability to compete internationally. People moving around in Switzerland know that it’s often difficult to find a good apartment with manageable costs. However, the cantons differ quite a lot if one compares rental costs and moving rates. Therefore, if you plan to move in Switzerland, it pays off to trust moving companies and cleaning companies with local expertise.

Top Positions for Switzerland

For seven years, Switzerland has been occupying position one of the most competitive countries according to the World Economic Forum. This is mostly due to the support of innovation, the infrastructure, a flexible job market, the education system as well as other criteria. Even though Switzerland is one of the smallest countries in the world, it can assert itself against giants like the US and Germany, who place third and fourth. Switzerland also counts as the happiest country and one of the most respected countries. However, there’s also a negative position: Switzerland is the second most expensive country. Only the Bermuda Islands have even higher living costs.

People in Switzerland encounter high prices daily and good quality products cost even more. Due to high demands and low vacancy rates, rental prices have been steadily increasing over the last years, especially in big cities. After finally succeeding in finding a new apartment, moving is often more strenuous and expensive than expected. Not only does one have to think of a redirection order, the address change, the moving company or a moving truck and the packing of moving boxes – one also moves to a new home and a new neighborhood, which can lead to additional emotional stress.


Local Differences

Even though Switzerland isn’t a big country, the cantons and cities are very individual and there are differences regarding mentality, languages, traffic and prices.
