Form 15.30 and getting the car out of Switzerland

Hi there,

I'm in a kind of deadlock situation with the selling of my old car (french plates). When I moved to Switzerland I obtained form 15.30 that authorized me to drive in Switzerland with this car for a maximum of 2 years. After those 2 years the car needs to be either imported (and taxed) or returned to the original territory (France) and form 15.30 presented to Swiss customs.

Now (less than a year after I moved), I sold it but I've been told that the car needs to be in the border/customs office when I present form 15.30. The problem is that I sold it on a day customs were closed. I've been trying to look everywhere about this requirement on the car being physically by the customs office when I present form 15.30 but I could not find it. I thought this could be like when you do an spontaneous declaration of goods while customs are closed.

Besides, the car is sold and I have proof of it but no longer access to the car. Did anyone experience or heard something similar?

Thanks for reading so far, this forum has been my most precious help since I started to move here.
