Car Shipping Lausanne 

Ship Your Car To Or From Lausanne, Switzerland

The scenic, French speaking city of Lausanne is located in Switzerland and is the capital of Canton of Vaud. It is considered as the largest city in the Canton. It neighbors Lake Geneva and is situated toward Evian-Les-Bains. The Jura Mountains are located to the northwestern portion of Lausanne and is 38.5 miles northeast of Geneva.

If you are planning to move here and stay for a while on temporary basis or permanently, one of the requirements that you may have is being independent to travel in your personal vehicle. To transport your vehicle from the United States to Switzerland will cost you between $2,000 and $4300. The larger your vehicle is, the more it will cost to transport to this country when compared to the standard sized vehicles. You will need the services of an international shipping service to assist you through the process. And that is why at A1 Auto Transport service, we can be of assistance.

Taxes and Import Duties

Switzerland is located in the center of Europe and has a very organized public transportation system that allows you to travel from one city to another with ease. It is not difficult to ship your vehicle from the United States to Switzerland, but it is important to familiarize yourself with the regulations and rules associated with transportation. If you are transporting a vehicle from the United States, you will not be charged any duty. The 4% duty will be cleared once you provide proof of ownership of the vehicle and you have not had it for less than six months. Once your vehicle is cleared from customs in Switzerland, you will only need to register your vehicle at the road traffic office which is also located in Canton.

If you are visiting Switzerland as a tourist, you will want to import your vehicle so you can travel when you want to. The only requirement here is that you can only use the vehicle for personal use, not for any commercial use. You will need to provide proof that your vehicle is only being used for personal reasons.

As per Swiss Customs Authority, a vehicle must be accompanied with all the necessary paperwork in order to avoid any delays that may occur if you should not be able to find the right papers. All imports will undergo an emissions test as part of the European Union as well as the technical test conducted at the Cantonal traffic office. Your vehicle will not be allowed on the roads until it passes these tests. You can find out the requirements for the vehicles entering into Switzerland by checking online for the rules and regulations. You will need to make any modifications necessary in order to avoid delays and be able to drive immediately.

Submission of Documents

To prepare your vehicle for shipment to Switzerland, you will need to gather up the following documents and make copies of these documents in order to distribute where it is necessary:

  • Residency permit in Switzerland
  • Inspection results
  • Form 18.44 which will be given to you by customs
  • Purchas invoice of your vehicle
  • Your passport
  • Bill of Lading
  • Proof that you have insurance on your vehicle
  • Your current drivers license

Getting Around in Switzerland

Its important that you learn the rules and regulations of driving in Switzerland so you will feel comfortable doing so when you are able to.

After that, you will be required to obtain a Switzerland drivers license.

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!
