And then there were four...

So, after going from one plate and two cars a year ago, we are now up to five and three!

So, one of each has to go, alas the car that has to go is not on the plate that has to go, so one car goes, two get shifted, and then the unused plate goes, though I'm not sure if I can shift the two, or have to de-register and re-register?

Well, at least my insurance guy understands what I want to do.

(at least, I hope so! )

Now, if only I can find a way to reduce from seven motorcycles and five plates.

Shifting to another car I've done before, but not from one plate I have to another (twice in fact), i.e. I've only done from registered/plated in my wife's name to my plate, in which case it was de-register/register, but in this case the registered person doesn't change.

The problem for me is that normally one de-registers at one window, and registers at another, so is that what I have to do in this case?

It may get to complicated for the guys behind the counter as I want the plate to be changed to a square one instead of the current long version. Have you thought about that for your cars?

I believe a new plate with the same number will cost 60 CHF

Yes, that's one reason why specific cars are going to specific plates, the cars that will be on plate #1 (short) have already used it, the other two will be on the long one, which they are used to (the Fiesta has used both)

I may be misremembering, but I think I remember a guy telling me that the MFK here wouldn't allow him to put two PS monsters on the same plate unless he paid the Verkehrsabgaben on those two - he had 2 wechselnumbers and that was exactly why he was trying to get them onto the same plate.
