Hello,

I am not sure if this is the right forum, but I am planning to buy a 4/4 Sports from an UK dealership and import the car to Switzerland.
If there is any Swiss member on TalkMorgan who has done the same bevor and would like to share his experiences, I would really appreciate!

best regards,

hello again,
You should contact the Swiss Morgan Club ( www.morgan-club.ch) and especially Dennis Vollenweider (e-mail: dcv@hispeed.ch
telephone: 044 912 0959
mobile: 079 401 7152 )
I know he bought a 4/4 Sport in England and imported it in Switzerland.
Good luck!

Wilhelm,

Jean-Pierre has accomplished this with his Aero 8, so I am sure he will have some words of wisdom.

His car can be seen here .

Best regards

Simon

Dear Swiss Morganeers,

unfortunately I find myself quite unexpectedly in a tight spot:
MFK Basel-Land refuses to grant me temporary number plates for the transport of my 4/4 from UK to CH on grounds that I have not yet a Swiss car registration ("Stammnummer") .... which of course I can only get when I have the car already in Switzerland.... a classic catch-22 situation mad2

I checked the official websites of other local MFK across Switzerland and found that the forms to apply for such temporary number plates require this "Stammnummer". I know that several of you have successfully imported their cars from the UK without having this dreaded number. How did you get around this obstacle and receive the temporary plates without stating the "Stammnummer"???

looking for clues

Wilhelm,

I would speak with Jean-Pierre, as per his post above, I know he collected his car at the factory and drove it home; therefore, he should be able to answer some of your queries.

Thanks Simon,

I have talked to Jean-Pierre a few weeks ago already and received good advice.
Unfortunately Switzerland is split in many small Kanton (counties) with independent regulations. It looks like I just ran into a local problem. Some of the other Kanton seem to be more relaxed about the rules for temporary license plates to be used for the import of a car.
It is just annoying that this issue came up last minute and that the local authority claims that my previous clarifications with them have all been "a big misunderstanding". That just sucks. mad2
