Transport / Van : Zurich to London in July/August

So Iím planning on renting a van and driving some of my stuff from London to Zurich in July or August.

Does anyone need to bring anything on the trip back? Ie Iíll have an empty van Zurich to London. I would be after only the cost of fuel and ferry. (Ie Iíll cover can rental and fuel/ferry down to Zurich).

You can even come along if you want...

Hi Spinal, have you already taken the van to London? I'd be interested to move stuff from Bern to Cambridge

Hi Spinal,
I need to take the stuff to Uk before end of October, flexible with the dates.
Could you please let me know which van company did you use ? I assume it was rented from UK with EU travel cover and unlimited mileage.
Many thanks for your help,
Best regards,
Laura

I rented from Hertz - got a sprinter LWB. Cost for a week was £400 or so, with unlimited mileage, European cover and an extra driver.

Hello Spinal,

I'm super interested in sharing the cost of your trip with you can bring my stuff too. Prices with Any Van are ridiculously high at the minute, the double I've paid when I moved from Zug to London two years ago.

I'm talking about 4x large moving boxes (about 20 kg each), 1x large suitcase, 2x dining armchairs, 1x double mattress (140 x 200), 1x small bench and 1x pallet coffee table.

What do you think?

I already did the trip, sorry.

That said, I regularly drive to/from London. I wouldn't be able to fit the double mattress in the car though

I mean for your next trip. I said December, right? I'm happy to leave the mattress behind :-)
