Send a Parcel To Switzerland


Switzerland is famed for its Swiss Alps and many glacial lakes which draw in tourists from all around the world, who also head there to savour the luscious chocolates and strong coffee. The country is very welcoming and is one of the wealthiest places in Europe, as well as being home to a rich cultural mix of art, literature and music, making it vibrant and exciting. Its combination of scenery and culture is a big draw for tourism and commercially, Switzerland is very healthy. 

Switzerland's inhabitants enjoy a high quality of life and an excellent standard of living.

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Switzerland?

Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, but this hasn't stopped them from entering the European Union's single market. Due to this, when you send a parcel to Switzerland via the UK, you will not need to fill out any customs forms. You can look to the Swiss Government's website for further guidance on postal customs. 

How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Switzerland?

ParcelBroker's prices for UK delivery start from as little as £17.07. Please note that delivery charges can vary enormously depending on weight, size, destination and urgency. With this in mind, it's best to contact us for a direct quote based on these variables. However, we will always obtain the best price available for your parcel postage. 

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Switzerland?

Addressing a parcel to a foreign country can be confusing. It's best to follow the postal instructions as directed by Swiss Post. They offer advice on the correct use of fonts, and how you should layout the address, to ease parcel delivery. For further information please refer to the Universal Postal Union website which offers guides and examples to help you with addressing your parcel correctly.
