Whether small transport or large move

Move to Switzerland without any problems with the Klingenberg removal company

Switzerland is the most popular country for Germans to emigrate to. No wonder, because many places in Switzerland, such as Zurich, Bern and Geneva, are among the cities with the highest quality of life in the world. The breathtaking nature, a lively concert and theatre scene and a strong economy make the small country with just 8.5 million inhabitants a destination of longing. But there is a catch to moving to Switzerland: the country is not part of the EU. This means that many formalities are necessary for a move to Switzerland, and various import and customs regulations have to be taken into account. As is often the case, the devil is in the detail. It starts with the question of which papers are needed for duty-free customs clearance of removal goods.

As an experienced removal specialist, we know exactly which forms you need and how to fill them out. We can also obtain export permits from German customs on your behalf. We will, of course, recommend a truck that is optimal for your removal project, that does not exceed the permissible total weight for a border crossing and that meets all specifications for the non-EU country of Switzerland. Of course, you will receive all necessary information about import and customs regulations from your Klingenberg removal consultant! We offer tailor-made offers at binding prices, a free removal consultation for Switzerland removals, customs clearance on import or export of your removal goods and direct settlement with your employer or the authorities.

The customs form 18.44 for relocation to Switzerland (Import CH) can be found at here at Swiss customs.
The customs form 0350 for relocations to Germany (import BRD) can be found at here at German Customs.
