UK car clamped in Basle - how much to unclamp

I brought my car over for 3 weeks until Xmas to drop off my belongings then take it back for good.

Parked in Blue zone and now car is clamped. Been there for 255hrs according to the ticket.

Does anyone know how much it costs to unclamp? Car is only worth a few hundred pounds. I'm not on the radar yet as permit only being processed now.

Did not import at border as not keeping car in Switzerland.

I do appreciate that a foreign car in residence only parking zone is stopping someone who ihas legitimately paid for the privilege to park.

Regards

Selina

You are on the radar, make no mistake about that, regardless of the processing situation of your permit

Best bet is to call the phone number on whatever ticket the clampers have left and find out for yourself how much it's going to cost. However I would advise you to be quick about it as the next stage is towing and then the costs really mount up.
