Re: Transporting your own car from abroad to Switzerland

Pay the taxes and the tests.

You need to own it at least 6 months before moving here for that tax and test advantages.

So It means, now that I live in Switzerland with no car, better to think about buying it right here? And not transporting.

Thanks again

Re: Transporting your own car from abroad to Switzerland

no not specialy ;

You can border hop and import the car. If you're going new the dealerships will to all the paperwork for you. (or a used car from the dealer)

If you buy used private abroad you just have to do a bit of paperwork....its a bit of a hassle but worth it depending on the price of the vehicle.

Or buy in CH and have no hassle at all.

Tons of info o how to import a car on this site

Thank you Anthony,
I just found the best solution which is to buy it in Switzerland and not to follow many risky ways which I'm not sure if I could manage it,
Butgood to know about possibility for case if I found something intresting in abroad then I can follow these paper rules,
