How long will it take to deliver?

 

We offer a three day economy road service and two to three days worldwide air service so however urgent your parcel for Switzerland is, whether it’s for friends, family or business, we have a solution for you.

Whether you choose to have your parcels collected from your home or a work address in the UK, we provide affordable and convenient door to door courier service. Your parcel is then taken to its local depot, sorted and shipped overnight to one of our distribution centres, then on to Switzerland.


Do I need to deal with Swiss customs?

 

A customs invoice must accompany any parcels sent outside the UK. This tells customs officials in the destination country what is inside your parcels and is used to calculate duties and taxes.

When you book a parcel delivery to Switzerland, we'll collect all of the information needed for the customs invoice as part of the booking form. Once you've paid for your delivery, five copies of the invoice will print along with your label - securely affix all paperwork to the outside your parcel.

Please note, for parcels being sent to Switzerland: the customs invoice must state the recipient’s full name (initials are unacceptable).

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for Switzerland.


What items can't I send to Switzerland?

 

 

As well as the usual restrictions you’d expect from any international parcel delivery, there are some additional restrictions on what you can and can’t send in a parcel to Switzerland.

How to package parcels to Switzerland


Although Switzerland isn’t a great distance from the UK, we still advise you to take care when packaging your parcel as it will travel through several depots, mostly with automated sorting machines, so be sure to pack your items well and use cushioning material inside your parcel to help protect the contents from damage.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max dimensions. We recommend you use a strong and sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. For further advice, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips.
