Hi we are thinking of bringing some used household goods over from the U.K. We have Irish passports, an inventory and valuation customs form does everyone get checked and pay custom taxes.

depends if you are in car or van,  most cars just go through without being stopped.

Depends, you can be one of the thousands that don't get stopped or one of the few that do get stopped, it's a lottery! We've done the trip regularly and only been stopped once. Matters not being a resident or a third country national.

Do the Newhaven - Dieppe crossing. When you get to the customs checkpoint, tell them your not staying in France, your driving through to Spain. At that point they lose all interest and send you on you way. Done it twice in last couple of months and exactly the same each time.
