harschrelocation 10thbirthday

Enter our competition to win an invitation for two at their special birthday celebrations on Thursday, 13 November!

It is now 10 years since removal specialists, Harsch, The Art of Moving, set up their invaluable relocation service, Harsch Relocation, in Geneva and Lausanne. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the company will host a special event for clients and partners at the MAMCO museum of modern and contemporary art in Geneva, on Thursday, 13 November, 2014.

As a long-standing partner of Harsch, Know-it-all passport has been fortunate to receive 2 additional invitations for its readers to attend this event, which will include a guided tour of MAMCO, as well as a welcome drink and post-tour dining cocktail which, judging by previous Harsch events, is guaranteed to impress!

Precious help to expats
Since 2004, Harsch Relocation has been offering coaching services that are tailored to expats moving to Switzerland or surrounding areas in France. Operating from both Geneva and Lausanne, this dedicated service complements the removal service that Harsch has been offering in the region for nearly 60 years.

Finding accommodation, coping with administrative procedures, enrolling children at school, and opening a bank account are just a few of the many steps required when moving into a new home, which can generate considerable stress for expats. The relocation services offered by Harsch remove this burden from the shoulders of their clients and allow them to focus more calmly on their new home situation and all that it entails.

Finding accommodation in a saturated market
Finding an apartment or house in Geneva or Vaud can be quite a challenge, especially when the market is already quite saturated. Since the beginning of the new millennium there has been a particularly high demand for 3 to 4 room apartments in Geneva, meaning there are very few vacant homes, most of which are typically in the hands of real estate agents.

With its indepth knowledge of the market and its vast network of partners, Harsch Relocation has proved extremely successful at finding vacant properties, and knowing exactly what procedures to follow in order to obtain them.  Over the past 10 years, many individuals and firms have benefited from Harsch's expert relocation service, which has enabled them to find and secure homes far more quickly than they could ever have hoped to achieve on their own.
