Sweden is a country in the north of Europe that shares a border with Norway and Finnland. It is not densely populated but many business people go to big cities in the southern part of the country for professional reasons. There are also those who decide to emigrate from the USA to live in Sweden. Are you thinking of moving to Sweden? Do you want to take your car with you? Once you have decided to ship your vehicle from the US to Sweden, you must find a professional and reputable car shipping service. There are many ports to which your car may be shipped, including Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö, but if you wish to have your car transported to your home located inland, it is also possible. You can choose between door-to-door or port-to-port service.
People who organize a transportation of their vehicle to Sweden must be aware that it will be subjected to a thorough mechanical and structural inspection on the arrival. Swedish customs officers are going to check if your car is in a state allowing it to enter the roads in their country. You should contact Swedish vehicle registration authority, pay a number of duties, including VAT and possess a Bill of Sale and insurance documents. You have to specify what kind of fuel is used in your vehicle, submit transport documents, engine numbers and model details.
As far as time is concerned, transportation of your car or goods will take three to five weeks. You can have the agent send your car either in a special enclosed container or on a deck of RORO vessel. Please plan your international car moving from the United States in advance and make sure you are aware of the prices at the destination. Usually, when you get a car shipping quote, it does not include any storage fees, handling and custom related charges and fees in the country of destination. You had better check then what are administrative costs, if there is an eco tax and how much one must pay for custom clearance documentation and handling charges.
