Advice to transport 55inch LED TV from lausanne to Zurich airport

I have to transport TV 55inches from Lausanne to Zurich airport.
Any recommendations to send it economically (Other than hiring a van)
I don't have a car or a driving licence

Re: Advice to transport 55inch LED TV from lausanne to Zurich airport

Probably asking someone to bring it personally (or do it yourself) by train could be a good (and cheap, if they go anyway) option. Trains go directly from Lausanne main station to Zürich Airport, and if a person would assist on each side, two people (the guy riding the train + each side's helper) could probably do it (or possibly in Zürich airport even without help, because there are free rental trolleys + all is designed flat for transport within the airport)

Other than that (if you don't know/trust anybody - I might be available), Flixbus does have a line from Swiss Romandie to Zürich Airport, and it's very cheap to ride on it.

Two direct buses a day. I think without any discount, it can be booked for approx 20 CHF (one way). Or, but that would need some negotiating talent, ask the bus driver if he would bring the TV set with him (without you joining) for some small "gift" in exchange?

I think if it fits on board and you are able to carry it then it's allowed. You could try contacting SBB to ask about this specifically if you can't find anything on the website.

Perhaps no extra ticket. When you travel with a bike you need an extra ticket, but if you put the bike in a bike bag no extra ticket ;-)
