Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Bizzarrely, after ages of me not able to get a huge and heavy microwave delivered by Amazon (I had checked multiple times and they never delivered to Switzerland), they all of a sudden unlocked the option to ship to Switzerland... for free! I am talking a huge and heavy-ass Bauknecht microwave oven that weighs around 30KG. For free. https://www.amazon.de/Bauknecht-MW-1...ct_top?ie=UTF8

Literally no rhyme or reason to it... not that I'm complaining.

So no doubt your ordered it and we will hear all about you trying to return it because you noticed it lacked a feature you absolutely need.

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Hi all,

Is there an option that I can declare an Amazon order to a German address across the border and pick it up? I live in Basel.

I remember some people did it but I cannot find somewhere how it can be done.

Thanks,

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Hi

Las Burg in Weil am Rhein. Set up an account and they will give you a mailing address. Use this address for Amazon and do your order. You will get an email from Las Burg when your package has arrived.

Sometimes it feels like half of Basel use Las Burg but they are very efficient.

Have fun
Martin

Not only third parties, but Amazon itself provides this. See https://www.amazon.de/b?ie=UTF8&node=11498162031 and let it find the location closest to you.
