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.

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:

  • 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.

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!
