Finding Removals Zurich: An overview

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zürich. Switzerland is home to four national languages. Depending on the area of the country, the predominant language spoken will be either Swiss German, French, Italian or Romansch

It is said that Zurich is one of the finest cities in the world to live. Many Brits have gone through the emigration process and now call it home. It is also known as the “banking capital”, home to the largest stock exchange in the world. However, there is a lot more to this beautiful city than banking & commerce.

The infrastructure is second to none. Public transport is clean, fast and safe but expensive. Trains are not very often delayed, so getting around the Zurich itself and outlying areas is easy. People do drive cars in the city, but because of the excellent transport available there really is no need to own a car.

There is plenty to do with your leisure time too. It has a rich culture due to the many nationalities who live here. Museums, churches, restaurants, cafes and bars are on every corner.  Further out of town you can climb Mount Titlis or take the train and discover the beautiful Jungfraujoch, a real Alpine adventure. Join a “city highlights” tour and ensure you don’t miss a thing.

Property Information & Finding Removals Zurich

Buying your dream Swiss house can be harder in Switzerland’s highly regulated market but it is possible. Owning your own property in Switzerland is not the norm. Statistics say that 60% of residents rent rather than buy. Limited stock and high cost of homes means that good property is expensive and hard to find. If you choose to buy, you have to be an EU or EFTA national with a Swiss residence permit who resides in Switzerland; or hold a Swiss C Permit.

With such high figures involved, it is very important to hire the services of a local estate agent. An agent will be able to assist with the mortgage process and depending on your personal circumstances, where would be the best neighbourhood to suit you. Most agents speak English.
