Let us do it for you!



In Switzerland, time is money and life is too busy to waste your free time cleaning or moving on your own. Moving homes here, with the unique set of rules regarding handover protocol, and everything in a foreign language, is a daunting task. Our team has been in the business for 30 years, so one of the most stressful things for you is all in a day’s work for us. Plus we will organise every last detail for you – your clean, free boxes, packing up, move and storage if necessary.

Martinas is a family-run company, small enough to give each individual client the personalised solutions and support they deserve. Our aim is to provide an affordable, fast, honest and efficient package to cover of all your requirements. With our professional, friendly team of move coordinators we usually call in at your home first so that we can put together a customised quotation for your move or clean. We make special note of access and parking restrictions and items earmarked for special attention. We understand at times it may be difficult to arrange this viewing, so we also cater for early morning and evening calls. If you choose Martinas as your home removals company, one of us will guide you through every step of the removal, keeping you updated regularly and adhering to your requests.

We, Sarah and René Ruhstaller, relocated to Switzerland from Cape Town to take over the company and our vision is to bring it into the 21st century and also to cater for English-speakers in the area, from our position as Swiss German and English bilinguals. René grew up in Lenzburg castle, lived in Bern, and studied at Belvoirpark Hotel Management School in Zürich. Thereafter, he managed two boutique hotels in Cape Town. Sarah grew up in South Africa, has a degree in Linguistics and diploma in Interior Design, and lived in the UK and Buenos Aires before Switzerland.

So we know what it’s like to have to condense all of your belongings to a pile of boxes over and over again, and that is why we so enjoy our job of making life easier for our clients!
