Re: moving personal household items to Germany import/export customs declaration

Thanks for your quick reply! However, won't it look a bit suspicious if you have a van of stuff, the Swiss or German border patrol will not stop you? And what do I need to do to "declare" the hired van?
When you cross the border your need to declare items you are exporting from Switzerland. As you are entering the EU. If you risk it and are controlled by customs in Germany you are technically smuggling. When all you have to do is declare what you have and be totally legal without charge.
