Switzerland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and is also one of the most wealthy. As a popular tourist destination as well, we see many parcels being posted to locations in Switzerland containing business consignments, personal belongings and items that are being bought or sold by private individuals.
It is worth noting that although geographically located in Europe, parcels being posted from the UK to Switzerland will need Customs Documents. Luckily, we collect the required information in the booking process, so you can concentrate on choosing the best value courier company using our quote engine.
Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Switzerland. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
Interestingly Switzerland is neither a member of the EU or the European Economic Area and despite that fact, they're one of the most competitive and innovative countries in the world according to the World Economic Forum and the EU. This does not prevent people from sending parcels from the UK to Switzerland, far from it in fact. We see large volumes of goods being sent, including big, bulky and long boxes as well as smaller parcels too.
Rather than paying for parcel delivery at the Post Office, you can make huge cost savings by comparing couriers online. You can even still use the standard practice of dropping a parcel off at the Post Office, but by pre-booking online, printing and attaching the shipping label and Customs Documents, you might be surprised at how much you can save.

When you send a parcel to Switzerland from the UK, you'll need to provide a customs declaration in the form of a commercial or pro forma invoice. This should be placed on the outside of the parcel in a clear plastic envelope or wallet so that customs can check what is entering into the country. When you send a parcel to Switzerland through Parcel Monkey, we'll collect the customs information during the booking process and provide you with a completed document to print and attach to your parcel.
You are not allowed to import radar detectors and there are some import controls on precious metals, watches and jewellery. To view the latest information we suggest you visit the Swiss Federal Customs Administration website. We advise that you also check out our Customs Advice.
It is essential that you provide local contact information so that Customs can make contact with the recipient if any duty is owed. All parcels are sent DDU, so it is the recipient's responsibility to pay any tax. You should make them aware of this before posting to Switzerland as if Customs cannot make contact the item can be held or returned.

I was so pleased the parcel did arrive in3days, You’ve out done the post office,
I have used this booking service many times Is always excellent Easy to book, cheap prices , quick delivery
You said 4-6 days to send parcel to Switzerland. Now 7 days and not yet in country
My parcel had a number of things in it (19) which should have been listed on the customer declaration form. However the form supplied only listed the first 5 items. I contacted PM through the online message assistant who was not helpful. It took a number of messages and a significant time to get the right answer. The parcel also took longer to arrive than promised by PM.
Parcel was collected on time arrived at destination quickly extremely pleased will use again
Collected and delivered on time at a most competitive rate
Wanted to send a large parcel to Switzerland after covid prevented a uk Christmas for family. The post office has 2 kg limit and Parcel Force is really expensive. Our son recommended Parcel Monkey. The online details were easy and the courier collected the parcel as agreed. The price was much cheaper and included the option for extra insurance. The tracking worked well and the parcel was delivered in good time. I would definitely recommend parcel monkey to others.
