Transporting car to the US

Hello,

Could someone please kindly suggest any company or service that would allow me to transport my car to the US from Switzerland? I would greatly appreciate any advise.

Thank you!

Re: Transporting car to the US

Before you do that, make sure that you would be able to register the car in the US. For many (if not most) Euro-market cars this will range from very difficult to impossible, unless you will have special status in the US (limited term stay, or diplomatic, or something like that).

Take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_i...#United_States for background on this.

Apologies if you already know this.

Re: Transporting car to the US

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply! My car was originally from the US (brought it here 3 years ago), so I doubt I would have trouble bringing it back. I am a US citizen too. So, that should not be a problem. Thank you again so much!

Ah, yes, in that case those rules won't apply to you.

I've heard good things about http://www.dasglobalservices.com/, but haven't used them myself.

Jennyy,


That being the case, what about the shipper that brought it over here for you? Were you unhappy with their service?


.... Or did you disassemble it and bring it over as luggage, sort of like the Johnny Cash song?
