Moving to Basel: What are the expected costs?
Just like in any other Swiss city, the amount of moving costs depends on a number of factors. These factors include:
The total amount of items
The moving distance
Accessibility for both your old and new home
Additional Services Requested
Some of the issues to consider when moving to Basel include parking permits and traffic jams, among others. Although Basel's streets are quite prone to traffic delays, it's not as bad as in larger cities such as Zurich. However, you should still be aware of the busy roads during rush hours as they could affect your driving distance and driving time. Therefore, also keep the limited parking options in mind when planning your move, as you are usually responsible for applying for permits yourself. All of these things can add to your moving expenses.

We therefore recommend that you apply for parking permits, deferrals or special permits well in advance of your move. In this way you avoid unexpected high costs in the long run if you or the removal helpers receive a fine. These fines, which are often higher than the cost of a properly executed move, are therefore passed on to you.
