import car from the US with export plates ?

I imported many cars from the US the last years but with the classic way , with the bill of the lading and after the custom clearance at the destination we put then the plates of the new land ....

now i want to get the car from the US and drive it and later maybe pay the customs clearance to get the new plates , so is that possible to ship the car from the US with that export number which will allow you to drive it once the ship arrive at the detination ?

for exemple here in Switzerland you pay about 200 CHF ( which is for 15 days ) and you can get export plates ( Exportschilder ) and yo0u are not obliged to send it back to the Verkehrsamt once the car has the new plates of the final destination

So is that possible with the US cars ?

If you have done it several times, maybe ask the people you custom clear your cars with and they can tell you directly

i buy only online from the auctions... so all the cars sold from the auctions will be shipped only with the classic way and they do not provide such services...

Thanking you
