Ship Car To Lucerne
πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ Switzerland, (CH)

Lucerne is a city which has its location in the central parts and it’s mainly German-speaking. It’s the capital of the Canton of Lucerne. It’s the most populated city in the central parts of Switzerland and a center of telecommunications, transportation as well as the government for its region. It’s also a major destination point for a lot of tourists.

Shipping your car there is definitely not a burden. U.S. citizens can ship cars free of duty provided they offer evidence that they’ve owned the car for at list 6 months and they have to clear customs and to register the car at the road traffic office.

If you are a tourist you can import your car for personal use without getting through customs checks and providing documentation. You’d have to provide substantial proof of this. However, if you intend to stay there temporary, you can still import your car for free but you have to apply for duty-free-customs plates with the local authorities.

Tourists do not have to register their cars at any authorities. They are required to declare the car at a manned Swiss border while getting into the country. There is also a provision that requires all cars to undergo a special test at the cantonal traffic office. Switzerland is also one of the countries with most strict anti-pollution rules so you have to successfully pass an anti-pollution test as well.

The website of the Swiss Customs Administration has detailed information on the matter. You have to consult your auto transport agency in order to be sure that everything is in check.
