Anyone in Zurich planning a trip to Ikea soon and have some extra space in the van?

As per title, I need a couple of things from Ikea that are too large to carry myself:

Ikea FÖRHÖJA kitchen island http://www.ikea.com/ch/de/catalog/products/80035920

Ikea GREVBÄCK bookcase http://www.ikea.com/ch/de/catalog/products/30104435

I live in 8045 Zurich which is next to the highway and pretty easy to get to by car http://maps.google.ch/maps?hl=en&saf...ed=0CBoQ8gEwAA

So, if any kind soul is planning a trip soon either to Spreitenbach or Dietikon in the enxt few weeks, and has some extra room in their large car or van then I would of course be willing to pay for petrol and give you a nice bottle of wine as thanks, as well as my eternal gratitude for the kind gesture.

Hey Richdog, I am a stay at home dad with a fair amount of free time on my hands during the week. I live in Wallisellen very close to the Dietlikon Ikea. I would be willing to help you out with getting your items to your home. If you are interested just send me a PM with your contact info and we will arrange it.

Well Velocipedist, aren't you a scholar and a gentleman! That's a seriously fantastic and generous offer, especially as you yourself don't need any stuff!

I will take that under serious consideration and accept if no-one else who is already going comes forward, as I really wouldn't want to inconvenience you unnecessarily. Thanks again.

Hey Nat, thanks but I kind of don't want to pay full whack for a man with a van, hence relying on a bit of charity from fellow EF'ers who may also be going to Ikea.

It really would be no inconvenience at all. I live 2k from Ikea and about 10 from you. And as I said. I have alot of free time on my hands. And who can resist free coffee in the morning along with a 1chf hot dog.

Ah yes, the benefits of the family card. You are very kind to help out. Richdog, don't forget to swipe the family card when you pay as you get transport insurance with it. Have fun shopping.
