Import butler - Autoimport services proven expert

You can import your new car into Switzerland in various ways. However, most TRANSIT SOLUTIONS also require a high level of administrative effort on your part. For example, with a customs registration number for your car you do not have comprehensive insurance and at the same time you have to spend a lot of time visiting all customs offices and carrying out customs clearance.

However, if you import your new AUTO WITH THE TRUCK, the import-butler will organize and correspond the complete handling for you directly with your seller. A Swiss truck company, which of course also has an ALL-RISK INSURANCE SOLUTION, loads your car abroad, takes care of export and import customs clearance and transports it to the import-butler collection point in Volketswil ZH.

As soon as your car arrives in Switzerland, all further IMPORT STEPs such as the reduction of the CO2 tax, vehicle inspection, insurance comparison and registration by the import-butler are taken care of. You do not need to do anything else than to instruct us to pick up your car, which is already registered with a Swiss registration plate.

The import-butler will now contact your seller to coordinate the collection. Some sellers would like to carry out maintenance work before delivery and for this reason still need time until collection by the truck company.

In addition to the appointment coordination, all documents required for customs and car import are simultaneously requested from the dealer by the import-butler.

Your car will now be loaded by the Swiss truck company and transported to Switzerland. Before the car leaves the foreign border, an export customs clearance is carried out.

In this way you can reclaim the foreign VAT already paid at a later date. Your car will be delivered to the Import-Butler collection point in Volketswil ZH after Swiss import customs clearance.
