Luggage: can one still send it forward on the train?

When we arrive in CH next year, we will have more suitcases than can be carried in the car that will pick us up. Is there still an option with SBB for baggage transport, or has that ended with the current world we live in... ?

Thanks

If that does not suit you, arranging a 2nd car, renting a bigger one, or having a "man with a van" are among your options.

If you are arriving at Geneva airport go into the ticket office first to pay, before taking your luggage next door to the luggage guys.

Also check their hours of operation.

There are automated left luggage lockers (of varying sizes from extra large to normal). The big ones are CHF12 for six hours.
