It's nice to ear that!

I've looking for one! It's on my wishlist (2007 Cooper S JCW in blue )

They are 1:18 scale - it's like 25cm depending on the real car.

Yeah... Probably not unless they creat something bonkers!

I hope you find your Mini and you get your collection here safely!

Thanks for sharing it with us. It's lovely.

PS, Bem-vindo ao EF!

Is it Villeneuve, Vaud? Rent storage space in Evian, take your whole collection there and carry it across little by little.

Re: Importing my collection - need some advice!

No problem bringing them all in with boxes - if they all fit in your car just drive them over. Fill in the 18.44 form and declare them to be safe. No tax as long as they have all been owned for six months (prior to moving to Switzerland). Bring them over and enjoy!

I have their original packages (most of them anyway) and i intended to transport them inside for safety... Is that a problem?
no problem, it is EITHER like new with the 18.44 form and declared OR as used goods (they are not so interested in used goods). The best way I guess is to pack them nice in the boxes fill out the form and drive them here. You will not be charged as it comes with you migrating to Switzerland.

I wouldn't take the risk on trying to bring in anything with a value that exceeds your personal customs daily allowance (CHF 300). Relying on a disinterest in 'used goods' could lead to exactly the type of trouble you are trying to avoid.

Complete the 18.44 and submit it when you come in (during the working day when they are open) and you'll have no problems!

They're the only things i'll bring here... Everything else stays there.

I thought about bring them by car myself but i'm afraid of what i would have to pay in the border for them. The pictures i showed on the original post is just part of the collection - I've almost 100 models.

That's why i wanted to know if and what i have to pay on the customs services in the border for all of them enter because if i bring a few (3 or 4) each time and assuming i'll only travel 2 or 3 times a year, it will take too much time...
I thought more about 10 every time. However, I, too, have to say it's a grsat collection, me being a fan of fancy cars and all. Tell me, who does the dusting?

Right! I think that if i declare them as new they will need to taxed entering the country... And they are used. I only keep the boxes because i need them to go to shows and things like that...

LOL I do! But i keep them in closed cabinets as Mia pointed out and that keeps them dust free... However i must say that it's very relaxing to spend some time cleaning and appreciating them! It's part of the hobby aswell as photographing them!

For example:

You don't declare them as new or used, just that they are your personal possessions and that you owned them for at least 6 months prior to moving to Switzerland!

Fill in the form, give it to them at the border when you're bringing them in (or tick the box saying you couldn't bring them all in at once and that you will be bringing in the rest at a later time (within 18 months of original entry to CH)), and enjoy your models once more! Nice pics too...

There you go, answers to your question.

By the way, when we were bringing a car, the Customs Person had a slight disbelief with our receipt for car, price paid but when we told him, go into our email and see the price we paid by ebay*, then everything OK. (*by luck knew where that ebay email was saved). Only mention that in case you still have either ebay receipt, only can be found for 2 months, or if the message in your email, so as to print out.

Re: Importing my collection - need some advice!

Good tip although they are highly unlikely to need receipts for your models. Just declare something like "Collection - 40 boxes of models" and leave it at that!
