Moving Guide: Move from China to Switzerland - 20170722105158146 1

We have been conducting international moves from China to Switzerland for many years. If you are moving from China to Switzerland, you need to look for a professional international movers in China like RapidWorld Relocations. We know how to manage your move to Switzerland smooth and successful. 

Key points to know: 

1. Switzerland is a landlocked country. Therefore, sea shipments enter Europe from Rotterdam, Antwerp or even German ports. This involves a long distance trucking from these countries to Switzerland. How would a moving company transfer your goods from these countries to Switzerland? this is a critical question to ask and you must ask. The safest way is to use a container trailer and haul the container directly from sea ports to Switzerland, without off-loading the boxes and transfering them to a trans-Europe truck – these trucks are usually super large and you would basically share the trucks with a lot of other goods. This also means, these trucks will have many stops from the North to the South in order to leverage the transportation costs.  In addition to the safety concern, the logistics lead time is also harder to manage for a co-load truck. So when you compare the quotations from different moving companies, ask those low bidders this question and you may find out why they are cheaper.  Of course, if you are not moving with large amount of furniture, and don’t care too much about the time, using a co-load truck for the trans-Europe part of the move could be a cost-saving solution for you. 

2. Due to the fact that you may share a truck from Rotterdam to Switzerland with other goods. It might be a good idea to share the container from Shanghai to Rotterdam as well. It would also reduce the moving costs for you.

3. Normal transport time from China to Switzerland would take approx 10 weeks. Sharing container shipments would take 4-8 weeks longer. 

4. Paperwork for customs clearance is not complicated. Only thing might be a problem is that if you are not a Swiss citizen, you would need to find a residence and get yourself registered in the nearest townhall before the container reaches Rotterdam/Antwerp/Hamburg.
