Shipping costs - UK to Switzerland

I'm trying to get an idea of the cost of shipping a 20ft container from SE England to Vaud. Any one care to share their experiences and how much it might be roughly?


Thanks!

Re: Shipping costs - UK to Switzerland

The major cost in using a shipping container is the moving of the container from
the truck to the docks, to the ship, to the port, to the truck and so on and then (I assume) from the truck to it's destination.

The actual shipping part is pretty cheap, irrespective of the distance across the seas.

For shorter distances, it makes so much more sense to use a lorry (a 7.5tonne should do it).

Either self-drive or get a haulage company to do it for you.

Re: Shipping costs - UK to Switzerland

we used GB Liners to do the whole thing - it cost 3500GBP - the other end, they couldn't get the massive lorry anywhere near our new house, despite us telling them, so we had to hire a local transit to finish the job as well - which cost us another 100CHF or so - if that helps you...
