Sending Our Household Items Back to UK


We are after some help/advice.

We want to send our furniture, household items and some summer clothes back to our house in UK. We will be leaving our house in CH, and looking for a smaller apartment. We will hardly ever be in Switzerland as we (my wife and I) travel extensively. It is pointless paying rent for a house, garden etc in CH. How easy is it to send stuff back and any help in what administration or rules to look out for will be appreciated.

We already discovered that we cannot give notice on our house if it impacts on end of December....

Re: Sending Our Household Items Back to UK


I would recommend calling Pearsons Home Moving. We used them to move our belongs here for us, but I know they also do removals and storage from here back to the UK. They were amazing help with all the customs and tax stuff...and compared to other companies were reasonable. We had a great experience with them and will defiantely use them when we return to the UK.

They do a lot of work in Switzerland so should be able to accomodate your needs.
