Delivery company for furniture - UK to Switzerland?

I saw a company that can deliver products and even furniture from Germany to Switzerland at very low cost and takes care of all VAT as well. So one can by from a mail order website, and have it shipped to the company's address and they will then ship it onto you.

Does anyone know if there is such a company that exists from the UK to Switzerland? I am looking into getting a office chair from John Lewis but the delivery is just as much as the chair costs (350)!

And you can't find an office chair here!

I got a Fingal office chair from Ikea a little while ago - CHF39.95 and very comfortable.

It's not a typical office chair. If you have seen something that looks like this in CH, please do let me know.

Please let us have the details of the company your saw that can deliver products and even furniture from Germany to Switzerland at very low cost and takes care of all VAT as well.

Ask Luker Bros how much they would charge. I had 14 dining chairs, 6 bedside lamps, besdide tables and a lounge chair and footstool delivered recently for just over 1200 GBP
They deliver between UK and CH every week. I had my furniture delivered directly to them and then did all the paperwork etc and delivered to my door.
