Despite being bang in the middle of Europe, Switzerland is not a member of the EU, which means all parcels have to be cleared by Swiss customs before they can enter the country. Document shipments and gifts (see below) are the only exemptions to duties and taxes, all other packages will have these fees applied and the receiver will have to pay.
If the charges add up to less than 5 Swiss Francs however, the receiver will not have to pay anything.
For shipments under 50kg, we can pick-up on the day you book from most locations across the UK and Switzerland. For health and safety reasons our driver can’t come into your property to fetch a package, so please make sure that your parcel is packaged and ready to go by your front door. If your package is over 50kg in weight you need to book a day in advance.
We also offer convenient drop off locations across the UK if you don’t want to wait home all day for the courier to arrive.
Unless you choose a timed delivery option your parcel will arrive at its destination in Switzerland any time between 9am-7pm on the day it’s scheduled. We don’t deliver or collect on weekends and public holidays.

If your parcel is going to travel up into the Swiss Alps then it might not always be a smooth ride. Therefore, the best way to ensure that its contents arrive in the condition that they left is to protect them with adequate packaging.
Follow our simple three-step plan when packing your parcel.
Second-hand boxes can hide weaknesses which may lead to them being crushed, or bursting, in transit. If the contents are heavier than 10kg then we recommend a double corrugated box.
Wrap every item individually, then suspend them inside the box surrounded by packaging material, such as bubble wrap, at least 6cm from the box edges. Nothing should move when you shake the box.
Using parcel tape wrap around your box three times in a Union Flag pattern. Cover all corners and joins. Adhere your label so that it won’t come off and the barcode is clearly visible.

Before you fill your parcel with goodies to send to Switzerland you should check that everything you’re putting in is allowed in the country. Firstly, check ’s own prohibited items list , which shows you goods our couriers can’t carry to any destination. Once you’ve done that you can look at restrictions which are specific to Switzerland, such as the need for a certificate to import culturally significant items. You can find out more in the links in our customs section above.
The Swiss Alps may be the perfect environment for a spot of skiing, but it can be harder progress when you’re driving a delivery van. As such, there may be a small extra charge for delivering to remote areas such as Grindelwald or Diesbach. We will factor this charge, and any extra time the delivery may take, into your delivery quote, so there are no unpleasant surprises.
