Shipping in Switzerland and Lichtenstein

Ship your purchases directly to your doorstep for a flat rate of 10 CHF. For light and small items shipping will cost 5 CHF. Occasionally I will offer free shipping over a certain amount purchased, and this will be clearly announced on the homepage. Your items will be shipped by the Swiss Post within the next three working days after your order has been processed. Please note that processing times may vary. If I will not be able to process your order within three working days (I am often out of town), there will be an clear announcement on the Home page of the website indicating the next possible delivery date.

Personal Pickup

Pickup your purchases yourself in Zurich and save the shipping rate. On the days and times announced here, I am in general at home, but the best is to agree in advance to make sure I will be here. We can also agree on other days and times that suit us both, I am flexible. I will contact you when your package is ready to arrange pickup.

The address for pickup is:

- S4 from Zurich HB to Brunau

Shipping outside of Switzerland

We use the Swiss Post to ship your package anywhere in the world. The shipping price depends on the final weight of your package (up to 2 kg per order), on your location (Europe or other countries), if you choose slow (Economy) or a fast (Priority) service, and for Priority service if you choose the option to track your package. Occasionally I will offer free shipping over a certain amount purchased, and this will be clearly announced on the homepage.

Please note that the prices on this website do not include tax, so the price you see is the price you pay even if it's delivered abroad. Also note that you might have to pay import taxes in your own country. If your country is not listed, please contact me and I can quickly add it to the list.

The following prices include shipping, packing and handling, and are cheaper than the real Post Office prices, especially as the weight goes up, to make it a little bit less hard on you on the shipping. If you want to track your package, you have to choose Priority and it will cost 5 CHF extra.

Europe Rest of the World
Economy (6-12 w.d.) Priority (2-4 w.d.) Economy (10-25 w.d.) Priority (4-6 w.d.)
0-0.25 kg 8 CHF 10 CHF 9 CHF 12 CHF

0.5-1 kg 15 CHF 21 CHF 21 CHF 32 CHF
1-2 kg 22 CHF 28 CHF 29 CHF 37 CHF

To give you an rough idea of the weights of different items, the pants weight between 0.3 to 0.4 kg depending on size and model, the shorts are around 0.15 kg, the bamboo cutlery sets are 0.03 and 0.05 kg, and the travel guides range from 0.4 to 0.5 kg. To this you have to add the weight of the packing material that will vary a lot depending on the size and type of items in your order, from 0.03 to 0.3 kg.
