Bring a Belgian car to Zurich for 1 year
I have skimmed through the forum and found some very nice info about bringing my car to Switzerland from EU. Even I found specific info to bring from Belgium (thans Belgianmum). However, I have a specialized question.
-I have a Belgian car (owned by me for 5 years) and a Belgian driving license. I'm of Cyprus nationality (EU).
-I have a contract to work for 1 year in Zurich, starting September 1, 2015 until August 31, 2016. After that, I have a permanent contract in UK.
-My idea is to drive my car from Belgium to Zurich and keep it there for 1 year, then bring it to Belgium and sell it off (it's a Citroen C2 1.4 HDi of 2003, so I don't expect much from it...).
Now the question(s):
-After I import the car, I have 12 months to register it and switch plates. What if I keep it with Belgian plates and just take it out of the country let's say 1 month before the deadline to sell?
-Anyone has experience from doing something like this? Which insurance company did you use?
-Yes, I'm sure that I'll not stay for more than 12 months. But, if in the end I do get a so much better contract permanent in Zurich, I'll still sell the car and get a new one (this one is already 12 years old).
-Yes, I would like to bring the car to Switzerland. I will only use it for weekend shopping but mainly for trips. I have some friends and relatives living in south Germany and North Italy. Plus, I love doing long trips by car...
Thanks in advance guys...
