Shipping from the UK to Vaud?

I need to buy a new matress but it needs to be a UK size as I do not want to replace the bed. I am looking for someone who has recently moved that is shipping storage to Switzerland, I would like to order a new John Lewis matress and have it shipped over, I would be happy to contribute to the shipping costs

What is the size of the mattress you want to buy?
I will be amazed if you cannot get it here.

Why? British mattress sizes do not conform with Continental standards. Finding mattresses in Switzerland that fit British beds would be about as likely as buying milk here in quarts.

Get one made up, it's a standard size so really not complicated for a manufacturer.

Elite at Aubonne make mattresses to order

I've decided to bring one over, I don't want one to be made and I don't want to change my linen.mso if anyone does want to share transportation costs I'd be interested

John Lewis Export will do it for you, plus manage the VAT refund for the UK vat. https://www.johnlewis.com/internatio...livery-enquiry


But, do you realise that UK superking is exactly the same size as the 180x 200 beds available in Switzerland?
