Car Shipping Biel/Bienne

Ship Your Car To Or From Biel/Bienne, Switzerland

Biel is located in the administrative district of Canton of Bern located in Switzerland. The language spoken there is between French and German. Biel is a German name meaning town. Bienne is the Switzerland’s same name for the town. Because both interpretations are made all the time, January 1, 2005, the name of the town was officially dubbed Biel/Bienne. You can find Biel/Bienne located at the foot of the mountain range in the Jura Mountains.

Learn more about shipping to Switzerland.

A picturesque city, with plenty of academic and work opportunities, there are plenty of expats and students that flock here every year for better opportunities. However, though the public transportation is good, if you are looking to stay independent, transport your car with you when you move.

It’s fairly easy to ship your vehicle from the United States to Switzerland and you can do it duty free. Your vehicle cannot be less than six months of age. You will also need to clear customs at the U.S border and in Switzerland. You will also need to register your vehicle in order to be able to drive it around the country. Additionally, you need to get the annual valid motorway "vignette" for CHF 40 and attach it to the windscreen before you drive it around the city.

Import Permits and Duties

If you are coming to Switzerland in order to tour it and shop around a bit, you will want to import your vehicle and clear it through customs to give you that freedom to do the things you want to do. You will need to show proof of your ownership of that vehicle. If you plan to stay in the country for a short period of time, you may still want to import your vehicle because it will most likely qualify for duty free import.

If you are bringing your vehicle over for short term, you also do not have to register your vehicle at any of the road traffic offices. You will need to declare your vehicle at the border crossings because they process trade goods there. You will also need to note that there is a compulsory provision in the country so it requires that all imported vehicles will need to undergo a technical test that can be administered at the Cantonal Traffic Office. This test needs to be done prior to you driving in Switzerland. Because Switzerland is very environmentally friendly, your vehicle will need to pass an anti-pollution test before you can be permitted to get the Swiss license plates and drive. There is a simplified version of the requirements for your vehicle.

Motor Vehicle Regulations

The laws of the country of Switzerland regarding importing are simple. You will need to pay duty and taxes on the vehicle which will consist of:

  • Some delivery vans or mini-buses will be charged an automotive duty
  • Duty is calculated at a rate of 4% of the value of the vehicle
  • Swiss Customs Administration website will have more information on how much you will need to pay in duty and fees that are charged for importing

Required Documents for Shipping a Vehicle to Switzerland

You will need to provide the right documentation in order to get the vehicle transported from the U.S to Switzerland. These documents that you will need include:

Best Car Shipping Company Biel Bienne
  • Form 18.44 from customs
  • Residency permit
  • Inspection documents
  • Purchase invoice
  • Bill of Lading
  • Passport -- copy
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Driver’s license

Getting Around in Switzerland

It’s not the same as driving in the United States so you will need to know the rules and regulations for driving in Switzerland before you arrive. You will want to note the safety road networks and the Public Transport System in order to obtain information. You must be at least eighteen years of age to drive a vehicle. If you want to drive a bus, you will need to be at least twenty-one. You can use your national driving license purchased in the U.S in order to drive in Switzerland for the first twelve months. You can find a list of road traffic offices located in Canton by visiting the Association of Road Traffic Offices in French or German.

...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.

★★★★★

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
