Does anyone drive to Buchs?

Hallo!


I need to bring a box/sort of furniture from someone in Buchs to ZH. The box is 100cm x 40cm x 50cm maybe 15kg. I suggested to them to use the post because it is cheap only 25chf but they can not take it to the post and I do not have a car to drive from ZH to thm. Can anyone help? I am happy to give some money.

Re: Does anyone drive to Buchs?

It might be helpful to specify WHICH Buchs, as there are more than one.

Re: Does anyone drive to Buchs?

Take it on the train? 15Kg is hardly heavy, and the box is small enough to carry

Yes, that's a good idea, as long as you are physically able. And very usual, in Switzerland.

If you use a trolley (can be had from a Brockenhaus) and some bungy cords or even just well-knotted rope, the public transport can be amazing for this.

Here, https://www.zvv.ch/zvv/en/home.html, you can look up the timetables with the criterion "barrier free", so as to be sure to choose all the connections with trains, trams and busses which are level with the platform.

First enter starting point, destination, date and time, then click on "show all options", then scroll down the bottom of each connections's details, and click on "barrier free". There, you even have the option to select slightly more time to change trains, if you feel you might need that.

Nothing
It is literally an empty box that is used as a cabinet/wardrobe

So why not bring it on the train? It's the simplest and cheapest way if whoever has it won't take it to the Post Office.
