Advice to all people on shipping parcels to Swiss

We had couriered few items which Fedex while shipping has put text - 'Personal use' and we are charged a tax which is more that the items shipped. Fedex says they had already paid customs and cleared my parcel and I have to pay them now. The reason they give is - the parcel should have - 'Personal belongings'. It is for the fedex to know what text is needed. Anyways.. I think they would take some other reason to tax. So advice is not to courier using Fedex. No experience with other couriers. Dont be surprised if some xyz ships u items and make you cough up paying money to fedex. They dont even take consent of yours to clear the shipment. Had I been informed on the customs amount to clear it, I would have asked them to forget it and let it go off at the customs dept only.
