It is common to ship vehicles in exclusive and shared containers from various terminals in USA to the above arrival cities. Once the car arrives to one of the shipping docks, it is transported by container to a selected city (Basel, Zurich or Geneva). One great advantage of using container shipping is a person can load personal belongings into the car and share the container with another party. This is also a fantastic way to move household items, in addition to a car, and get an exclusive container. An itemized list along with the values must be provided. Here is more information regarding loading personal possessions in a container.
RoRo (Roll on Roll off) Car Shipping to Switzerland
Another popular method is to ship the vehicles to Switzerland in RoRo ship (illustrated above) to either Belgium or Germany. From there the customers either drive the cars or arrange the agent in those countries to truck the vehicles to Switzerland. When using the RoRo method, nothing is permitted to be in the car except for the spare tire and jack. Your car must be in good working order to drive up and down the ramp without mechanical assistance.
