Sandy is the owner and has started this business recently. We have used him a couple of times for IKEA runs now and he was always on time, made sure our stuff was well secured in the van and helped us carrying everything up (5th floor...) when the lift prooved to be to small. We can only recommend his services and will use him again.

Actually Sandy helped me thrice back to 2010 : 1st for moving, 2nd for collecting a bed and 3rd, for my sofa. 6 years later, I am glad he is still here for my next moving to come in a month. He is reliable and very nice.

Sandy was recommended to me by two independant friends, and I have been very pleased and impressed with his services (moving from Geneva to London). From the start he was friendly, happy to give very useful advice and guidance, easy to contact, and always communicative and prompt.

I am exceptionally happy with the move and service he provided and recommend him to anyone.

Ok so 2 years on and we used Sandy once again and his group of merry men. They are fantastic, they do what they say and more. If you have to find someone to move you, use Sandy he is wonderful, patient, flexible and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Great guys, great service cannot recommend them highly enough!! Thanks guys.

Well done Williams Trading.... AGAIN!!

Sandy, what can I say? You and Jim were what we prayed for on moving day. Professional, efficient and courteous. Despite being made run up and down 5 floors with no elevator they were amazing.

All our belongings arrived in perfect state. Would recommend them at every opportunity. Absolutely brilliant guys. Great service and price too.

Many thanks Sandy & Jim, we will most definitely be in touch again.

My experience of Sandy’s services were 100% positive. Sandy helped me to move my personal belongings from Lausanne to London (Paddington) during first week of August 2014. Sandy worked extremely hard to shift all the items, load the van, drive the journey and then unload upon arrival in London. To my knowledge, there was no damage to any items of furniture. There was no issue of loss of items through transit or multiple jobs - everything was delivered in accordance with estimated time-scale.

I strongly encourage you to not hesitate to speaking with Sandy if you are moving house or large items. He offers honest advice and sound information. If you have any questions or would like to find out more information about my experience, you are welcome to contact me (through the usual social media channels).

Here's a time saver for you - if you're moving use Sandy. He was punctual, fast, professional and did a great job for us. We've used other larger firms in Geneva and they just pale in comparison to the level of service we got. In short I can not recommend him enough.

Sandy and co. know what they're doing! I'll use their service again. Efficient, punctual and reliable people. You'll be in good hands.

We at MyExpatShop have used Sandy on a few occasions and he has always proven to be hard working, reliable and efficient. I always think of Sandy if I need help and would recommend him without hesitation.

Sandy and Jebb were fab! I thought my move would take forever. They managed to dismantle and move all my stuff (down 3 flights of stairs) in no time!
I completely recommend them - amazing service!!
I would use them again in a heartbeat!
Thank you so so much!

I have used Sandy and his team on six separate occasions. I have always found him to be polite, punctual, efficient and very reasonably priced. I recommend him without hesitation to anyone who requires removal services in and around the area. I never hesitate to use his services and he deserves nothing but success as a result of his hard work in what is often a difficult and physical job.

I wish I can share same feedback about Williamstrading. Contrary to most of the opinions here, my experience was rather miserable.
To start with, they damaged walls in apartment I was leaving on multiple places. For this I needed to pay damages to agency.
Packaging job was all but professional.
On top of this one piece of furniture was damaged due to careless handling.
Mr. Sandy kindly offered that his insurance will take care of this. Even asked photos and original invoice.
After I went through pain to obtain all this I never heard back from him.
Overall, rather frustrating experience.
Would not recommend to anyone.

I really can't agree with other reviewers. Man with a van totally messed up my move and I ended up desperate 3 days before I was due to vacate my apartment, and was fortunate to find someone else. Sandy 'lost' or 'forgot' my booking twice. At best he's disorganised, at worst he found a better paying client and chose to prioritise them. If you book with them, check and double check your agreement several times.

Excellent Service. I called Sandy on a short notice, he replied and came to help me moving and assembling furniture right away. Very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Today we used Sandy to move from our two bedroom apartment in Nyon to our new three bedroom one, and his services were fantastic.

He's thorough but loves to work quickly, and wastes no time on the job. His van is a decent size and can certainly carry a fair bit (Peugeot Boxer). He has all the right equipment, packaging and accessories to move any household items, whilst keeping them safe and properly protected.

I would not hesitate to use Sandy again, no matter how big or small the job.

I used Sandy to help me move back to the UK. Very helpful, friendly and reliable. Would not hesitate to recommend him.

We used Sandy's company to move us from Geneva to the UK last week and he did a great job. He was very accomodating and very professional. We had a number of bulky and fragile things and he moved them with no problems. He was very flexible with timings in both pick-up and delivery. He even managed to get our large IKEA sofa bed down six floors flawlessly.

I would certainly recommend him for any moves you have.

So great service with a smile and at a fair price too!

We used Sandy's company last week, and I'm so glad we did! Usually Ikea trips are a nightmare, but this one was relaxed. Sandy met us outside Ikead (after I had collected the small stuff, and paid), drove us to the depot, loaded a really heavy sofabed on the van. Then he drove us to Lausanne, and while my husband and I build a small chest of drawers and a table, he had build the sofabed. Great value and great service!

Sandy is a great, hardworking guy. He speaks english, he's fast, thorough and reliable with his work. He has a big van therefore, could carry lots of furniture i.e. refrigerator, washing machine, couch and a wardrobe all at the same time. He can also find a second person for a lower rate.

He dismantled and mantled my big wardrobe, installed washing machine and a big ikea bed. He is an "All-in-one" solution for everyone. I highly recommend him. His contacts are below:
