Upon accepting a role in Zurich the challenges of relocating had not dawned on me until after I signed on the dotted line. Even though the move was a mere 650 miles across the English Channel the logistical and psychological impact on myself and my family “reared its head” soon enough. Amidst the unanswered questions and all the unknowns Sandra Furrer came to our rescue.

We hit it off from our very first conversation.  She has an extremely bubbly personality and a very positive outlook which gave me the reassurance that I clearly needed.  Her level of service was second to none; she was quick, efficient and very accommodating. I am very particular where certain things are concerned and have very high expectations; Sandra was able to exceed in every aspect of the move.  She thought about everything, down to completing the application for our driver’s licence swap, which was a year down the line.  She went above and beyond to make our transition as seamless as possible. The thing I liked about Sandra the most was that she was very open and honest, she challenged me and clearly outlined the pros and cons, even though she knew it went against the grain, she was never afraid to share her opinion especially when it was in my best interest.

You can see that her work is her passion and she gives of herself freely, she is very committed to her job and makes it all seem so effortless.   Her ability to engage at such an intimate and personal level but retain her professionalism is her gift and this definitely made the difference for me. I cannot say thanks enough for all Sandra has done for me and my family during the period of our relocation, she was indeed a Godsend. I can unreservedly recommend her to anyone seeking relocation services to Zurich, you will not be disappointed. She’s a star!!!!

We arrived in the Swiss town of Zermatt after a wonderful train trip from St Moritz on the Glacier Express.
We were immediately taken by the cleanliness and the layout of one of the best towns in the whole of Switzerland, we were transported to our hotel by electric bus which was very different but very very good.(no noise)
At our hotel we were met by a charming host who looked after our bags and showed us to our room, we had booked a Matterhorn view room but when we walked in and saw the view it took our breath away.
We were very lucky with the weather, not a cloud in the sky and the view of the Matterhorn was spectacular.
After we settled in we decided to take a walk around this magnificent town and we were not disappointed.
The church, the mountaineers cemetery, the shops, the restaurants, the museum, the old part of town and the continuous view of the Matterhorn was just outstanding.
The next day we had one of the most memorable experiences of our lives when we took a helicopter ride around the Matterhorn and with another day with cloudless skies, words cannot express our feelings to be so close to the summit without climbing the mountain.
Zermatt in the summer is a place you can stay longer than two nights like we did, if we ever go back and I am very hopeful we will , we will certainly extend our stay.
When we have been asked what was the highlight of our Switzerland trip we both have no hesitation in saying our time in Zermatt and seeing the Matterhorn.
We were also extremely lucky to meet Ms. Fabienne Gotzenberger who went out of her way to show us what a great town Zermatt is and we cannot thank her enough for making our stay so enjoyable.

When Sandra suggested we visit Zermatt and the Matterhorn before leaving Zurich, we immediately agreed, and we are so happy we did because our trip exceeded our expectations.

Fabi welcomed us immediately, personally took us to our hotel and even asked us to join her for a delicious dinner at a local eatery. She gave us helpful tips on where to go, what to do and what to see. We loved Zermatt so much that our 3 day trip felt like it was too short.

Thanks Fabi for welcoming us and showing us around your beautiful town and creating such wonderful memories there.

Relocating a family half way across the world from Australia to Zurich, Switzerland could have been a real challenge especially with three children – Two daughters 17 and 15 (difficult years to move) and a little boy who is two and half. Instead of it being a challenge it has been an amazing adventure and after nearly 12 months in Zurich it still feels like a holiday.

None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for our relocation agent, Sandra Furrer (Managing Director Matterhorn relocation). Sandra’s knowledge of Zurich, her professionalism, energy, caring nature and her extensive network made this move so easy. We have a great home, the kids are very settled at school and we have made some lovely, life long friends all thanks to Sandra.

For Sandra this is much more than just a job she cares about each of her clients and works closely with them to understand their individual needs even today I can pick up the phone and ask for her advice or help.

Sandra you are amazing and I am so pleased you were there to help us with this life changing experience.

Sandra is a star. She goes the extra mile for you taking care of everything from move planning day 1 until the very last moment when you are all settled in your new place not even thinking about the move anymore.

She knows it all: the city, real estate agencies, house-related tips and tricks, swiss public services and getaways.

I would have never been able to settle in so quickly without her precious help, not to mention that she found me a beautiful apartment they way I wanted it!

Thank you so much Sandra, you rock!

We used Matterhorn Relocation when we moved from Dubai to Zurich in December 2013 and highly recommend Sandra to anyone planning a move to Zurich, Switzerland.

Everything was meticiously planned, organized and managed, and most importantly, the service was incredibly personable and friendly. Literally everything was ready upon our arrival in Switzerland and this helped us settle in so much quicker than expected.

Sandra is extremely knowledgeable and has answers to any question you may have about your move to Zurich and tailors her services to your needs. She went above and beyond what was expected and we looking forward to staying in touch!

When I moved from Amsterdam to Zurich, a friend of mine recommended Matterhorn Relocation. Having moved to several countries in my life, I was told that Switzerland can actually be quite complicated.

However with the help of Sandra, this turned out to be my smoothest move ever. Sandra has a super personal and service minded approach, which makes the whole moving process a positive experience and not stressful at all. Matterhorn Relocation helped me literally with everything, from finding the perfect apartment, to help with the move, registration, internet, etc.

Sandra really goes the extra mile to make sure you settle in quick and easy!

Considering to move to Zurich, but unsure how to organize?

If you are about to relocate your life to Zurich and want to make the transition as smooth and pleasant as possible we can only highly recommend Sandra Furrer and Matterhorn Relocation!

There is simply no one better and more dedicated than she is. We were in the challenging position to move with two small kids from abroad, but with Sandra’s support, skills and network there were no bumps or obstacles. However what we value most is the personal touch she gives. Everything from mommy networks to city highlights to important contacts, she has it and delightfully supports you on this extra mile as well.

Sandra, thanks for everything you did (and still continue to do!)!

Sandra of Matterhorn Relocation assisted us with our move to Zurich last October. She welcomed us personally on a Sunday and immediately made us feel at home.

She was so quick and efficient, we had our housing arrangements and paperwork solved and done in just a couple of weeks! Sandra even took an extra step to make us feel comfortable in the city: she provided with so much useful information on activities and events in and around Zurich and Switzerland, as well as introduced us to several people of the international community that later on became part of our circle of friends.

If you are looking for a relocation company that is complete, efficient and at the same time warm with a personal touch, Matterhorn Relocation is by far the best option.

Thank you Sandra for being there for us!

If you are looking at this website then you are seriously considering moving to Zurich- Switzerland, one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in the world, with a large expat community and where the locals are just so friendly and ready to help. With a number of international moves “under our belt” we thought it would be easy, however don’t be fooled, things are done correctly and in the right order here.

Sandra Furrer and Matterhorn Relocation helped us find the perfect house and area for us, negotiated our rental contract and got us registered with the Swiss Authorities during our short go-see visit. She knows Zurich and the system well and she has so much energy and love for her job. Not only did she help us settle in she has a huge network of contractors to help with the mundane day to day things like getting IT systems running to gardeners and handymen who helped put together our new home.

Once that was in place she even helped us make friends with like-minded people. She knows where you will fit in best in Zurich if you have children who require International schools, want to live the city life or enjoy the great outdoors. Even before we got here we had so much helpful information and contact with her. We highly recommend Matterhorn Relocation.
