Importing car - CH registration

Have read some of the great posts about buying a car in Germany and importing it to Switzerland and in the process of doing the same. We are moving to Switzerland on November 1 and I'll head down to register at the "Einwohner- und Fremdenkontrolle" wihthin the next few weeks.

The dealer we have spoken to in Germany asks me to provide our address in Switzerland. I am wondering what official document is best/right to use. Is that our registration (which we will get from the Gemeinde) or is our rental contract or my employment contract sufficient?

Is there anyone with similar experience or advise?
