Sending used clothes with DHL (Germany to Zurich)
In September I'm taking on a job in Zurich. I arranged to transfer most of my stuff with a removal company (an englishforum member!) but they will arrive in Zurich September 4.
So, I decided to send ahead a bag (20-25 kg) with some things for the first week (towels, clothes, underwear, etc.).
DHL has a nice price at 53 euros Germany->Switzerland for 30kg. What do I declare on the box? Can this be treated as my "moving" belongings? Could I be asked to pay tax and administration rights on my used clothes? What if I attach my new contract and renting agreement on the box?
Any advices are welcome.
P.S.: I don't want to take the bag with me as excess luggage because our itinerary is Belgium->Greece->Cyprus->Zurich. Too much fuss and too expensive.
