A new move means a new start and provides the perfect opportunity to consider what to take with you and what to leave behind. We have the optimal solution to both. Whether you’re moving out of or away from your current location, require somewhere to store your belongings or need help transporting your goods to your destination,
it’s always good to have an experienced removals expert by your side, and the certainty of knowing that whatever you leave in short- or long-term storage is in safe hands.
We are well-versed in all the technical and administrative aspects of private and business removals. In addition to more than 120 years of experience, guaranteed timely delivery to destinations all over the world, flexibility and maximum reliability also play a key role. And in keeping with the fundamental principle of cost-efficiency – never at the expense of quality. Judge us by our own standards.
Gmür + Co. AG combines innovation with tradition. After more than a century of continuous development, we have become masters of our trade – building on our heritage. Following our establishment in 1892, we have kept pace with the latest technical developments. We are well-versed in all service aspects, from removals to transport to storage. The same care and attention is applied to the transportation of simple items as to sensitive hazardous materials. We are even experts in dealing with the complexities of special transport.
Thanks to our own warehouses in Emmen/Lucerne and Sursee, we always have control of your property. Our self-storage area in Emmen/Lucerne offers you unlimited access to your stored goods round the clock. Seven days a week.
Despite being rooted in the region, we are at home all over the world. Rather than being a contradiction in terms, we see this a mark of quality.

Founding of the company by Arnold Gmür
Arnold Gmür (1859–1916) becomes an established haulier in Lucerne, expands the company set up in 1884 and manages it up until his death. The company Arnold Gmür soon becomes the official haulier of SBB.
In the boom years leading up to the First World War, the furniture removals business is significantly expanded – locally, nationally and globally. The establishment of professional associations and a great deal of commitment lead to Gmür becoming a first-generation company.
Founding of the Aktiengesellschaft (PLC)
The public limited company Gmür & Cie AG is founded in 1927. Together with the managing directors, the second generation of Rudolf Gmür, Leonhard Gmür and Alois Eggerschwiler-Gmür leads the company through the difficult years before and after the Second World War.
Roll-out of the first motor vehicles
Improvements in the road network lead to the successive roll-out of trucks of varying sizes from the 1930s.
The Gmür fleet
By the 1940s, an impressive fleet has emerged. The vehicle portfolio is then adapted and continuously expanded to meet technical requirements and demands.
Today’s fleet comprises 12 different vehicles, trailers and transport lifts.
Gmuer goes global
In the 1960s and ’70s, Gmür trucks can also be seen as far afield as the Middle East and North Africa.
75 years of Gmür + Co. AG
In 1967, the family enterprise celebrates its 75th anniversary.
The haulier business bids farewell to the last few horses.
Introduction of the first swap body system
Gmür + Co. AG is one of the first removals companies to introduce the swap body system for transporting furniture and thus increase flexibility.
With Peter Gmür the fourth generation takes over management of the traditional company.
