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. United States citizens as well as foreigners from other countries can drive on their home driver’s license for up to twelve months in Switzerland. After that, you will be required to obtain a Switzerland drivers license.
