Forwarding post package from Germany to Switzerland

I was too late to realize that a website is not shipping to Switzerland. But already invested time, picked my items and would really like to get them.

Is there a website/company doing post forwarding for a reasonable price? (i.e. not adding too much on top of the standard shipment cost)

Not sure about the weight, 3-10kg maybe

Have you asked them if they are willing to ship to you?

I received a packed yesterday from a company in the UK that “does not ship to Switzerland”.. it was only about 40 bucks worth of gear, so it was not as if they were going to make a fortune on it.

All it took was one email explaining that I was used to receiving packages from abroad and understood the costs and duties involved. And that I would not reject the package, leaving them with a mess to clean up afterwards.
