WHEN DOES A CAR COUNT AS A CLASSIC CAR?
A vehicle is usually considered a classic car if it is at least 30 years old and the condition is to be described as almost original. Then there is the possibility to import this duty-free into the European Union under certain circumstances or only the legally prescribed 7% import turnover tax applies.

Whether a classic car may be imported duty-free is decided by the European customs authority after detailed examination. Of course, this is different when importing to Switzerland. Our employees with years of experience in the field of classic car imports not only take over the customs clearance of your dream car for you, but also deliver it safely to any place you want. Our door-to-Door solution is a popular service. So you can quickly look forward to your imported vehicle.
