Storing/selling a trailer brought from UK: Zurich

Hi,

I am about to bring a load of my stuff over from the UK, having completed the major task of finding somewhere to live!

For quite practical reasons I would like to do this in one go and using a trailer which I have seems logical. However, I still don't know what the basement storage situation is in the building I am moving to because, I omitted to check that out.

What are my options?

With the right blue permit can I leave it attached to my car at the side of the road?
Are there any storage locations within a reasonable radius of Zurich where I can store this for the short to medium term?
Given it's in good nick, would I be able to sell this? I understand you need to register a trailer in Switzerland, so I imagine that would not be a quick solution.
Does anyone on here want a stainless steel and aluminium 8x4 trailer?

Thanks,

Andy

If you want to sell it for use in Switzerland then you have to import it properly with certificates.

Alternatively I had a trailer that was not imported correctly. I advertised it as so in ebay. A guy from France bought it; he collected it with a flat trailer so he could take it away without towing it.

If you are interested in selling it, what size is it and a photo?
Bare in mind to use it here it will cost a lot to get it through the MFK process which should reflect in the price.
