Basel border crossing

We have been trying to contact border control at Basel to ascertain if they are open on SUNDAYS as we have a man and van crossing with some of our personal items as moving to france, but cannot so far find a definitive answer, does anybody out here know the answer? And if border is closed how do we export our personal belongings and car?????? Feeling v stressed and confused as less than 2 weeks until we leave. TIA to anyone who can assist

click on English.

Make sure all cartons are labelled with contents, like 'books' 'toiletries' 'clothes' 'shoes' etc,

The driver of the van must have the official forms filled in properly (if <i remember well, in triplicate).

Re: Basel border crossing

And remember vans above a certain size are banned on Sundays; sorry do not know the exact size.

Re: Basel border crossing

The OP is actually exporting their goods to France not into Switzerland

Re: Basel border crossing

As long as you have the forms and papers in place, this really should not be an issue.
