Shipping Rivella to the UK

I would like to send some Rivella to the UK .
I have never sent refreshments before. Has anyone ever done that? I googled and found information but am looking for some direct feedback.
Will it reach my friend or are refreshments likely to be held back?

Also on a side-note, has anyone ever sent a parcel from Germany? I read the threads on EF but there is not many on sending from Germany. The easiest would be to use the Postfiliale in Jestetten for example. Anything I need to know/ be aware of?

Thanks

Come 1 Jan 2021, won't make any difference if you ship from CH or DE to the UK I believe... Brexit and all...

Maybe you can find a uk online supplier like this one

Lots of people I know send their parcels to the EC from Germany. You need to wrap it properly, go to their post-office. The only thing you might have to expect is the German customs wanting to know what's in the parcel.
So maybe don't finish the wrapping completely before you're "over there".

If the value of the package is under 300 euros, the customs do not care.

No they won't but they might want to check themselves.

If it is over 300 Euros one might as well send it from Switzerland? Or is the postage that much cheaper in Germany?

Re: Shipping Rivella to the UK

Can you not get it from Amazon UK and get it delivered to the person at the other end? I buy the Maltese soft drink Kinnie from Amazon when I go back to Scotland.

It is a lot cheaper. At least until the end of the year. 2kg are 9 Euro or 23 Francs. But ordered now from the UK. Will see how it goes

Re: Shipping Rivella to the UK

An update after a long time.

The Rivella has arrived. It took a while and I thought it wouldn't work but then it did arrive. So a good option unless you are in a hurry. Might use Dodax again.

So again, thanks to Starmir!
