Whether you’re moving to the country permanently or temporarily, you may want to consider shipping a car to Switzerland through a reliable overseas transport company.
The only way to assure the safety of the vehicle and an easier time complying with the import policy in place is by hiring professionals to supervise the process. They are the only ones with the experience, equipment, ships and trained employees to handle the job.
Residing in a foreign place without the comforts you’re used to is extremely nerve-wracking. Not only can you have your own car shipped, but your belongings can enter the country with your car. To do this, you must purchase container shipping services. Having a vehicle is especially comforting since you can use it to freely explore your surroundings, becoming more familiar with Switzerland every time you jump behind the wheel.
Your To-Do List.
Before the transport can even be made, there are some things that you’re held responsible for completing. Of course, employees of the transporter will help you through the preparation process. This is time consuming usually so call the Embassy of Switzerland weeks in advance to start collecting the proper documentation early on. The Customs department needs all proof before the shipping date. If everything is shown, a certificate for import approval is given.
Not only must you gather the documentation needed to prove compliance with the import policy, but you’ll need to get the car ready. Preparing the vehicle keeps it safer from harm. It also protects the employees taking care of its transport. This is an easy task to complete. Check the fluids, clean the car, fill the tires, leave ¼ or less gas in the fuel tank, and take pictures of the car. The transporter may ask delegate other tasks if obligatory.
