Re: Importing new car from the UK

I have recently looked into this as we were going to do as you have and decided not to because of the insurance. The problem was you cant get swiss insurance until the car gets accross the border and you cant get uk insurance even short term unless you are a uk resident. I checked many many companies. Even if the car is registered in the uk you cant get the insurance unless you are a resident of the uk.. the only option i found was to use a trailer and of which I contacted a couple of companies but none that were able to bring the car back for me.
I hope you find a quick solution the only other option i could suggest is to get a friend who is resident in the uk to take up temporary cover on the vehicle and drive it back for you....
