Need space in a van from UK to Basel or surrounding area

Hi
If anyone has a van coming from the UK to Basel or surrounding area, I need to bring a vespa scooter out here. Am happy to pay for the space in the van. Scooter is located in London but can be moved to a convenient location.
Let me know if you can help.
Thanks

Re: Need space in a van from UK to Basel or surrounding area

Hi there,

we are moving to London around Christmastime and will have an empty van coming from London to Zurich -- via Basel shouldn't be a problem... maybe we could join forces and share the costs.

Please PM me if you're interested.

Re: Need space in a van from UK to Basel or surrounding area

Just make sure you sort out the customs stuff properly.

If you are bringing the Vespa over permanently, you will need to import it properly (I'm sure user Saint7uk will know more about that); when I moved to CH our (British) removers didn't realise that a boat trailer counts as a separate vehicle and needed to be imported as a vehicle rather than personal effects. It made it impossible to put it on the road here, and I ended up scrapping it and buying a Swiss trailer.

If you are not importing it permanently, be aware that you are not allowed to drive a foreign-registered vehicle in Switzerland if you have already swapped your driving licence to a Swiss one

Re: Need space in a van from UK to Basel or surrounding area

We just got a pretty reasonable quote from some movers and after thinking about it some more it might be better just to pay them rather than deal with the customs, the driving, the ferry...
