As a Tourist

If you are a tourist, you can import the car without documents only, if it’s for your personal use. The authorities will need proof that you are resident from abroad. You can import it free of duty on a temporary basis, but you need to apply for duty-free customs plates. Additionally, you wouldn’t have to register the car at the road traffic office. However, you need to declare it at a manned border crossing. Furthermore, the vehicle will need to undergo a specific technical test and the anti-pollution test as it enters the border. The duty is usually around 4% of the vehicle’s value which is appraised by the local authorities.

On a Permanent Basis

You need to establish residence, if you want to import the vehicle free but you have to provide evidence that you owned it for at least the last 6 months. Additionally, you need to clear customs and to register the car at the road traffic office afterwards. Shipping a vehicle from the U.S. to Switzerland is likely to cost you between $2,000 and $4,300.

Larger cars as well as those which are shipped from the West Coast or the Midwest are likely to cost you a bit more to the area in comparison to standard-sized vehicles and those which come from the East Coast.

Required Documentation

It is important that adherence to Swiss Customs Administration is done so that there are no delays or quarantine of your vehicle.

  • Driver’s license
  • Insurance proof
  • Bill of lading
  • Passport
  • Invoice of purchase
  • Residency permit
  • Inspection document
  • Form 18.44 from the customs

Now, it’s also important to understand that Switzerland has the safest road network in the entire Europe and it has smooth public transportation. You need to be 18 years old to drive motorbikes or cars and 21 years if you want to drive a bus. You can use your national driver’s license for the first 12 months of staying in Switzerland. After this time goes through, you will have to exchange it for a local one. You can visit the website of the officials for further information. What is more, you can always contact the Swiss embassy in Washington, DC, should you feel the need to get a bit more additional information.

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!
