Switzerland has always been a popular European destination, especially for the lovers of mountainous landscapes, and for those conducting business, or looking for employment. However, as Switzerland is not part of the EU, moving to the country is not as hassle-free as moving to Germany for example, and for those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere, Switzerland is not the most attractive destination. This prosperous and economically strong country with stunning landscapes, however is an ideal location for many, and offers a wide range of employment opportunities, especially in the financial and business sectors.

Moving to Switzerland

Switzerland is a landlocked country located in Western Europe, divided between the mountains of the Alps and the Central Plateau, and bordered by Germany, France, and Italy among other countries. Switzerland has a history of political neutrality, and is not part of the European Union or the European Economic Area. It is one of the most prosperous countries in the world, is ranked as the most innovative country in Europe, and has a highly competitive economy. The strong economy ensures a high standard of living and Zurich and Geneva are both ranked very high for quality of life. This also means a very low crime rate and a lack of widespread social problems.

While winters can be cold, especially the mountainous regions, and the society is said to be less open to expats and immigrants than some other countries, Switzerland is generally a safe and politically stable place to live, which makes it an ideal destination for many. The diversity of stunning landscapes and climates are perfect not only for the lovers of skiing, but also for those who enjoy hiking, and want to see some beautiful sceneries. Whether you enjoy the nature and rural areas or prefer modern cities, Switzerland can be a perfect location.

The 2 men who came on Tuesday 25th worked hard and efficiently all day but still left a fair mount of packing for the... following day. On the day of the move, Wednesday 26th, completion of the sale was finalised by 11am but we couldn't vacate the premises until 1pm due to the amount still to be packed. The addition of a 3rd man did little to help and in fact the quality of packing he did was hurried and not up to standard. Overall we would recommend Britannia.read more

We chose Britannia as they seemed the most professional of the three removal companies that we approached. They were... clearly experienced in moving long distances across the country. They did not disappoint. The removal men could not have been more helpful or considerate. Our new house does not have the easiest of access but they coped admirably. I would thoroughly recommend them - indeed we have done do to our nephew and his wife who are moving south soon.read more

I would highly recommend Britannia Cestrian. They have assisted me with various library moves over the last few years... within in Cheshire including Storyhouse and more recently in Flintshire. They are highly organised and handle the book stock and specialist items with real care. They are always helpful and professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. The company will help you plan your move to ensure that everything runs smoothly. A top class service and real value for money!read more

I have always received great service from this company. I have used them on several occasions, both for removals and... storage. They are always polite, friendly, helpful and professional. I have moved several times and the guys have always been punctual and very careful with my belongings. The storage side of the business is also great. The price for my container was very reasonable and it was stored in a clean, dry and secure environment. Whenever I have had cause to email the office, my mails have been answered quickly and politely at all times. I wouldn't use anyone else and highly recommend them. Thanks.read more

My wife and I were very happy with the service provided right from the first contact with the request for a quote to... the offer to collect the boxes and packing materials after we have finally moved into our new home. Special mention needs to be made for the driver who was loading and unloading during the hottest days of the year. He was courteous, considerate and friendly at all times. He and the team coped very well with the move into our fourth floor flat - they were careful not cause any marks to the recently refurbished entrance foyer for the block of flats.read more

Used Britannia for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Very happy all round, good contact with head office when... needed, lads were very cheerful and helpful. They really struggled with a wardrobe refusing to fit around staircase. eventually they stripped it down to smaller sections to complete the move. Would definitely recommend to any friends.read more
