Driving from UK to Switzerland

Hi all, I apologise if this has already been done, I have searched but am still struggling to get a relevant and up to date answer.

Basically, I will be moving to Switzerland from the UK in a few weeks with my family. I will be driving, with all our belongings we are bringing in the car, using the channel tunnel and then driving through France and over the border into Switzerland.

The question I have is whether I need to fill any customs forms out and if so does anyone have a link? Also, anything I should watch out for?

I imagine this question has been answered previously and if so a link to that thread would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Nik

Re: Driving from UK to Switzerland

Bit late for me to do much searching but here's one Thread and here's the official link. The latter should be up to date.

Hope all goes well.

Re: Driving from UK to Switzerland

You guys are too fast for me - or maybe it counts extra that I gave two links?

No point in me messing around here if you are doing the work anyway.

'Night guys.

Re: Driving from UK to Switzerland

Thanks a lot for the links, they are a big help.

Like I said, I did search but with so many threads it can sometimes be tricky trying to find what you're after!

Cheers
Nik

Re: Driving from UK to Switzerland

We definitely have advantages over new members there - we get a lot of practice searching as not everything is easy to find.

Stickies at the top of some sections contain links to many outside sources and other threads - sometimes even with a short description of what the links actually contain. In the Introductions forum there is a very good one, lots of help for new members - including tips on how to search!

I am a pretty new member, have only been in Switzerland since end of November, but already seem to spend half my life searching so am also getting lots of practice
