Does Swedish customs charge duty on household items?

You can have the duty that would be levied on your shipment waived, when bringing used household goods into Sweden. To be eligible, you must have purchased these belongings a minimum of six months ago and been personally using them during that time. Customs also requires that you’ve been living outside of Sweden (and possibly the EU as well) for a minimum of the last 12 months. Other requisites include having registered a place of residence within the country and entering Sweden before your goods arrive (1).

In fact, according to the International Association of Movers, duty relief is only available if you’ve already been living within Sweden for a minimum of the last year (and it was your permanent place of residence). However, this stipulation is a little fuzzy – as IAM also mentions a time limit of just 12 months after moving into the country to import goods without paying duty (2). It’s quite possible that merely the intention to live in Sweden for at least a year is what’s required instead (3). To clear up this confusion, you’re advised to seek out an answer straight from customs.

What paperwork is required for household items?

A Foersaekran (the Swedish customs form) and your passport must be provided. You’ll also need a full inventory written in either Swedish or English, along with a valid Residence Permit. Customs also requires you to register with the Swedish Tax office, and you must submit a stamped copy of this document to customs. The Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment is necessary as well.

You should have a copy of your rental contract and/or a Letter of Employment too (4). This letter should confirm that your work contract runs for at least 12 months, as mandated by customs. If a third party will be interacting with customs in your place, then you also must file a Power of Attorney (5).

Does Swedish customs charge duty on vehicles?

It appears that duty exemption can be obtained, when shipping a vehicle with your household belongings. However, whether or not customs grants duty relief doesn’t seem to be certain (6). It’s also clear that you will definitely incur duty, fees and VAT if your vehicle isn’t part of your shipment of household items (7). Therefore, it’s important that you combine these, if you wish to receive exemption for your vehicle import.

Customs also enforces various regulations, including the requirement that you not sell the vehicle for a full year. You’ll also need to have documentation showing insurance coverage was in place for the past 12 months. Buying the vehicle a minimum of one year before shipping it to Sweden and personally using it during this term are both mandated by customs as well (8). However, another reputable source reports that six months is sufficient – so you’re urged to ask customs which figure is correct. Finally, a limit of a single vehicle per adult is imposed (9).

What paperwork is required for vehicles?

The Original Bill of Lading and a driver’s license are required, when importing a vehicle into Sweden. You must have the vehicle’s title and registration as well. A copy of your insurance policy from your origin country is also needed. The Original Bill of Lading and a customs form just for your vehicle should be submitted (10). Customs also requires that you purchase temporary insurance from a Swedish underwriter and provide proof of this coverage. The purchase receipt for the vehicle must be presented to customs as well (11).

Moving to another country takes a good deal of planning, and you should be prepared to face some logistical challenges. This is why working with an experienced international shipping company like A1 Auto Transport is so critical – as we can help you through every step of the process. In addition, it’s important that you talk over your upcoming relocation with Swedish customs. They have the most up-to-date information, regarding their import regulations and fees.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

The following tips will help make your relocation a seamless experience:

  • Conduct plenty of research before settling for the right moving company. Gather information on the ones that provide Sweden International Moving Services and that will meet your needs and match your budget.
  • Familiarize yourself with the rules governing shipping to your destination country. Relevant authorities such as the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) have useful information.
  • It is important to package your goods in a way that allows for easy storage and movement. In case there is a fragile product, package and label it well.
  • Prepare your documents well and present them as and when required for processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company and provide them with all the necessary information as relates to your move. Seek guidance and information from them whenever you need to do so.

Relocating to Sweden or any other location may be a hard task to do alone. You need someone who can provide Sweden International Moving Services such as packing and unpacking, transportation and document processing. This will make the relocation less overwhelming, from start to finish.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
