Ordering household appliances from Germany

So... a dishwasher I wanted to buy is currently much cheaper in Germany than here in Switzerland. Checked a couple of websites, but they allow me only to enter a German address.

Any website suggestions that deliver to Switzerland?

Thanks

Open a drop box at LAS Burg and get it delivered there, then pick it up yourself. http://www.las-burg.de/

Why not, you can open the drop box and get delivery, then find somebody with a car, i'm sure somebody here would help out for a bottle of booze !

Or rent something from Mobility, or call this guy (you get a van and a driver/guy to do the heavy lifting for one decent rate).

You may want to make sure the washer width fits the space. CH used to have less-wide space for kitchen appliances in order to shut out foreign competition, difference was only 4cm or so.

60cm is the Euro norm and 55cm the Swiss norm.

If the OP can get to this store in Waldshut to order

http://www.expert.de/waldshuttiengen/hettler/

they will deliver and take care of all the customs formalities.
