Shipping from UK stores

Does anyone know of a freight forwarder/consolidator in the UK? I want to buy some furniture from West Elm (they don't ship outside of UK) and have shipped to CH. Thank you!

Re: Shipping from UK stores

This sounds a tough ask, especially at the moment.

John - white van man - might be doing a run sometime to the UK.

I’ve used France removals a couple of times and they’ve been very good.

Try Luker Brothers. . They do regular trips to Switzerland. Just have the supplier deliver it to them, or they can pick it up from them.

We’ve even had them deliver to neighbouring France (less paper work) but that option might disappear soon.
