Leaving Switzerland Why Departures Services are so important

Are you planning to leave Switzerland soon? As Switzerland's relocation market leader, we know from experience that many people underestimate what's involved.

From ending utilities and insurance contracts, selling vehicles, to deregistering from schools and the local community – relocation is much more than just packing boxes and waving goodbye.

Packimpex Ltd. is equipped with Departure Specialists across Switzerland who assist companies and individuals with the complex and often time-sensitive task of moving on.


Swiss lease contracts have specific terms and conditions which differ from canton to canton. Lease cancellations need to follow a certain timeline and protocol.

Appropriate, professional support will liberate you from all of your departure obligations.

Avoid unnecessary fines, follow a detailed checklist and stay informed.

Let the experts handle it for you

Carole Javet and her team of relocation consultants at Packimpex will make sure you exit and return your property with peace of mind.
You can also count on them for support with essential departure services.



At Packimpex we ensure that relocating to another country is well organised and hassle-free.

You will be supported right throughout the departure process with clear instructions in regards to tenant responsibilities and compliancy issues, and you will be assisted with complicated written documentation.


With Packimpex's Departure Service, you will be assigned your own Departure Specialist who is dedicated to supporting you with all of the required departure planning and procedures.
