Around 45 years ago, Packimpex started as a small European household goods moving company based in Switzerland. Today, we’re a relocation services provider active in five European countries and serving clients from around the world. Find out where we are located and how we can best serve our clients thanks to our network of local experts.

Why work with a multi-national European relocation company?

Handling multi-country relocation projects is a major logistical and administrative problem for large corporate HR managers, Relocation Management Companies (RMCs), and companies of all sizes. For starters, you need to find suppliers in every country. Moreover, when the country is culturally diverse and administratively fragmented (like Switzerland or Belgium, for instance), you might need multiple partners because of regional variances.

This is extremely time-consuming and expensive. As a leading European relocation company, Packimpex has mitigated all these risks for its partners, who now have a smoother and streamlined processes.

Local knowledge is everything

Despite our European presence, we know fully well that in the relocation business, local knowledge matters most. Transferees relocate to a definite city in a very definite country, they need to find a home in Manchester or London, not in a vague destination in the UK. That’s why we have appointed Local Heroes in every country where we are present.
