Ordering from Amazon.de goods that don't ship to Switzerland

Hi everyone.
Asking here to see if everyone has any idea how to do this.

I'm interested in buying a cheap bike on sale at Amazon.de that I couldn't find on sale on regular shops in Germany or Switzerland.
They don't ship those items to Switzerland, but annoys me being so close to the border and still not be able to do it.
Has anyone managed to find a workaround for this, or some way to pick items in Konstanz somehow ?


cheers

Re: Ordering from Amazon.de goods that don't ship to Switzerland

There are various places just across the border from Basel or Konstanz which offer this service:

http://www.serviceadresse.com/
or
http://www.euroretour.ch/wcms/euro.c...sc,de/blue.htm

you register with them, get a username, have amazon ship the goods there and then pick them up yourself.

Hope this helps and is not too far away from you

It may be possible to have goods sent to a Packstation in Germany, you would need someone who is a German resident to set one up for you.
