Import your vehicle.

If you are coming to Basel to stay for a while, you may want to import your vehicle to the country so you can drive around on your own. You will need to ensure that all the paperwork is handled in a timely manner. You will need to specify that your vehicle will be used for personal reasons only. You will need to show a lot of proof that your vehicle is yours and it doesn't violate any of their laws. You will need to start your application in order to gain a plate to put on your vehicle once you arrive.

If you are visiting here or don't have time to stay, you won't have to register your vehicle. You are required to verify your vehicle at a border crossing. All vehicles imported will receive detailed testing at the Cantonal Traffic Office. This will be performed prior to you being able to drive it. Since Switzerland is very environmentally friendly, your car will be given an anti-pollution test.

Temporary import.

You will need to prove to the Swiss Customs authorities that you are only there as a tourist and are there short term. If you plan to extend your stay, you will need to import the car to Zurich. You won't need to pay your custom duties there but you will need to apply for a license plate that is customized and duty free. You will need to declare your car at the border. While there, your vehicle will go through the anti-pollution test as well as the technical test. You cannot drive your vehicle to Zurich until this is complete.

You can expect to pay Swiss authorities about CHF 25 and have the Form 1530 completed. This form is for those who are foreign students, interns, and expatriates who are using their personal vehicles in this country for no more than two years. There will be no duty paid. If you are made to pay duty, it will be added at a rate of 4% of the total value of your car, market value. The appropriate information can be found at the Swiss Customs Administration. You can find information about the duties there as well as import regulations and requirements. A1 Auto Transport Service will assist you with all the details about shipping your vehicle overseas to Switzerland. You will be able to select two shipping methods; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping.

Swiss traffic regulations.

It's important to remember that driving in Switzerland is different in the United States. For example, Switzerland is well known for it is great public transport system owning the safest roads in Europe. You must be at least eighteen years of age to drive cars or motorbikes. To drive a bus, you must be twenty-one years old. You can use your U.S driver's license for the first twelve months of staying in Basel, and driving however after the twelve months are up, you will need to obtain a Switzerland driver's license instead.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
