Sharing Van Hire UK to/from Zurich in March

Hi there,

We're going to be hiring a van in early March to transport some items over to Zurich. Pick up will be in the South-East England.

If anybody wants to do the same in reverse, please PM me, as we could arrange a joint hire.

I'm looking at hiring either a SWB/LWB transit, so 6m3 or 10m3.

Our dates are fairly flexible but would like it to be early March.

Hope this is of interest to someone returning to the UK.
Wendy

Hi Claudio,
This sounds great. Do you want to send me a PM and we can discuss all the details, when/where/how much, etc. ?

Hi Wendy, our Son has moved to Zurich and we'd like to send some of his things out to him. Have you got room in your van? We are in Cumbria so I guess we'd have to fetch the stuff to you if you have. Please let me know, cheers, claire

Re: Sharing Van Hire UK to/from Zurich in March

Hi, we still haven't done anything about getting son's belongings to Zurich, but we could use any spare space in a van if you get one. We are in Cumbria but could travel the stuff a reasonable distance to you...? Let me know if you are interested, cheers, Claire

Re: Sharing Van Hire UK to/from Zurich in March

I have a van going both ways about every 2 or 3 months and usually have space to move things either way for people. Next trip will be end August or in September, but I've not decided exactly when yet. PM me if interested.

Re: Sharing Van Hire UK to/from Zurich in March

I am not suggesting that any of you are up to anything dodgy, but do be careful if you plan to take someone else's goods in your vehicle without them. Take sensible precautions, particularly if it is someone that you haven't met before.

As they say at the airports "Did you pack that suitcase yourself sir?"

Hello Estonia. You said you'll be leaving the UK to come to Switzerland on 29 July. Will the van then be returning to the UK ? If so, on what date ? Will there be any room available ? Very many thanks. Peter Griffin.

Sorry Estonia - I did of course mean 28 July and not 29 July.

GrumpyGrapefruit,

Would like to get more details on when you will have the van going to the UK, I have one item of furniture I need moved. Tried to PM you, but you must be too popular as your inbox was full

Thanks
Gillian

Re: Sharing Van Hire UK to/from Zurich in March

Hi,

We are moving to London end September and plan to drive a van filled with our houshold stuff over to London . I'm not sure if this will work out as I heard today from SIXT and co that they don't allow a van to enter UK.
Some of you have done it - where did you rent the van??

The other option will be renting a van in UK and drive it over empty and back full (as I will start my job already on Septemebr 8 in London).
Has anybody experience with a van rental company in UK?


Thanks for you help and suggestions.

Cheers
Sigrid

Hi Mike

I am looking at moving about 7cubic meters of furniture in the last week of August. Do you know if you will be running a van around that time?

Kind regards

Daniel
