Fixing a currency exchange CHF to Euros

Does anyone have any experience with a currency exchange company like World First, Moneycorp?
Will be sending chf to euros in a few months so interested to know if the currency exchange companies give better rates and if its a good idea to fix the rate now? On the one hand, I have an exact amount I need to send so helps to know the rate, but is the rate likely to be any better than youd get from a bank on the day?
If anyone can recommend some companies, will get some different quotes and post here.

I've had very good experience with WorldFirst ... quick, possibility to agree a rate some days before having funds with them, good customer service. Rates seemed ok too ;-)

I can recommend Rational FX. I have used their service since three years to transfer fund from EUR to CHF when I first move to Zurich and then now from CHF to EUR. They are reliable and efficient.

If it's not a big amount I would create a post on the for sale sub forum and see if anyone needs Euros.

I've bough Euros and Dollars this way before with no problem.
