Why Choose The Delivery Group When Shipping to Switzerland from the UK?

Our international shipping services provide customers with a range of benefits and advantages, many of which cannot be found when working with other firms:

We offer time-specific, express deliveries

We do everything we can to offer our customers the fastest, most efficient courier services. No matter if you’re on a deadline to get your products shipped to a client in Lucerne, or need to know a secure handover was completed after you sent a set of important documents to Geneva, we can offer you the delivery you need. With our express transit times, your package could be received in as little as 2-3 working days.

If you need your packages to arrive on a certain date, we are also able to offer time-specific collections and deliveries. For instance, if you need a series of parcels collected in Manchester, we can ensure they arrive with your recipient in Bern at a time which suits you best. All you’ll have to do is provide us with the recipient’s address, the delivery and transit time and the speed. We will handle everything from there.

We provide personal account managers

We wish to work as closely with you as possible, no matter what you’re posting to Switzerland. To ensure that this can happen, we’ll provide you with your very own account manager. These team experts will be on hand to help however you need, from answering questions to changing delivery dates or even cancelling orders where necessary. 

We’ll let you focus on the most important aspect of all (running your business) and take care of the rest, from dealing with billing and VAT to customs and documentation. We’ll even be able to navigate your goods through the busiest shipping days of the year, including Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

We streamline services for eCommerce businesses

If you’ve been searching for cheap rates to help reduce the cost for your eCommerce business, we can help. We’ll find you a cheap price to suit all your shipping needs, while never compromising on the quality of the courier services provided. We’ll always be available to carry out this work, whether you’re only planning on sending a few packages sporadically or need to make regular deliveries.

We are also proud to be price-competitive, so if you find a cheaper price online or are quoted a number, we are confident that we will be able to match it. To learn more about this, please take a look at our page on eCommerce.

We have an app for tracking parcels and packages

We understand the worry that comes with sending goods and cargo abroad, and how this won’t be alleviated until you know the items have reached their destination safely. This is why being able to track your packages in the modern day is vital. It also helps you to determine the success of any delivery firm you’ve chosen to work with. To help our customers with this, we’ve created our own free, downloadable app to use whenever they need an update on their items.

Each pallet we send will be given its own tracking number. All you need to do is put this number into the app and you’ll receive information on your goods’ whereabouts. Alternatively, you can also call our head office in London and speak to a member of staff. They’ll be able to give you an update.

Our app is available to download from the Google Play Store or the iOs App Store.

How to Address Packages to Switzerland

When sending items to Switzerland from the UK, it’s important to note that there are some slight differences with address formatting. For instance, the recipient’s title will go by itself on the first line of the address. This is then followed by their name. The name of the street will then precede the house or flat number.

The formatting for a Swiss address is therefore written as follows:

The recipient’s title (i.e. Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms, etc.)

The recipient’s name

The street name and house/flat number (you can also add a floor number, if you know this)

The postcode and town or city

The country

In practice, this would be written as:

Mr

Gabriel Steiner

Wiesenstrasse 43

3014 Bern

SWITZERLAND

Will I need to Deal with Customs in Switzerland?

As Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, there is no limit on how long items can take to be imported from the UK. However, you will not need to worry about customs or VAT when you partner with us, as we will take care of this step for you.

Are There Any Prohibited Items I Cannot Send to Switzerland?

There are a number of restrictions on items that you can send to Switzerland, as well as a list of prohibitions. We have included a short list of some of these, as an example of the goods you should avoid sending:

  • Live animals
  • Vegetable products and potatoes of non-European origin
  • Live trees and other plants, roots, bulbs and the like, including cut flowers and ornamental foliage
  • Beverages, spirits and vinegar
  • Arms and ammunition, or parts and accessories
  • Explosives and pyrotechnic products, including matches
  • Printed books, newspapers and magazines, as well as other printed media forms
  • Propaganda material that’s likely to endanger the internal or external security of the State
  • Briefcases with in-built alarm devices
  • Non-rechargeable lithium batteries

To find out more, or for clarification on any items on our list, please see the Swiss Post website.
