Leaving Basel to the Netherlands

Hello dear forum people,

I have been in Basel for (almost) a year for my internship, and at the end of September my contract is ending. The plan has always been that my girlfriend would drive me to the Netherlands with my stuff in Switzerland, then she would come back to keep working here. Now because of corona virus, we are not sure if this is a good option, because she cannot afford to be in quarantine due to his job.

I have two questions, if anyone has any advice. First is, is there any (cheap) company that would move my stuff to the Netherlands? I don't have any furniture. My clothes and all the small things, I can fit into a suitcase and take a plane. However I have things like 2 guitars, an ukulele, an amp, some board games and video game consoles. What would be the best approach to send these back my home, and avoid any possible tax problems since I already paid the taxes for these in Switzerland?

Second question is, we are following this link to see if the Netherlands is in the list of quarantine zones. So far it is not, but does anyone know how often this is updated? We see the new case numbers in the Netherlands and it looks like it's just a matter of time until it gets into the list... Though if it doesn't, then we have no problem with our initial plan of driving there.

Thank you in advance for all your help!
