Buying used car by dealer - speed? auto schiess - any experience??

Hi all,

I work for a company in Thurgau and I am planning to get a 2nd hand car. I am out of Switzerland on business a lot, esp. to Germany and Czech Rep.

I dream about giving somebody as much money as they ask (within a reason) and just drive away. I am scared to death by all the paperwork I can smell.

a) Does anybody have experience with Auto Schiess?

b) Will a large dealer help me with the insurance, plates and everything?

c) Speed is of essence, I will need to leave in a a day or two - how long will it all take? When can I drive my car out of dealership? When can I drive it out of Switzerland?

Thanks a lot for all the answers.

Martin

We bought a used car from a small dealer and they handled insurance, plates, and everything within about a day and a half. They were even in a different Kanton from where we live and this caused no delays. Shouldn't be a problem to do what you want.
