The city of Gävle is located in Sweden and it’s the current seat of the Gävle Municipality as well as the capital of the Gavleborg County. It’s the 13th most populated city. Today, there are quite a few shipping companies left on the shipyards but the port is very important. There are over 1000 ships calling every year and this is one of the busiest ports in the country. If you are moving here as part of your professional duties, study, returning citizen or for personal reasons, you might want to retain some independence of movement in and around the city. That is why having your own personal vehicle is important.

Required Documents

If you want to get the custom clearance, you will have to present quite a lot of documents at the U.S. Customs as well as at the Swedish Customs Authority. Some of them include:

  • Car Insurance policy
  • Temporary insurance in Sweden for the length of the stay
  • Title deed – original
  • Driving license
  • Passport
  • Vehicle bill of purchase with details

Import Regulations

Now, there are quite a lot of different regulations that you’d have to consider. You shouldn’t have shipped any vehicle with tax exemptions in the last 3 years if you want to take advantage of these exemptions now. You need to prove that you have owned the vehicle for at least 12 months in advance and you would have to provide a written declaration that you are importing the car for personal use and not for commercial purposes. These are just a few of the regulations that you’d have to abide by.

You have the option of shipping your car by sea freight or air freight. As air transportation is extremely expensive, most people prefer a long duration transit at more affordable costs. RORO transport has some limitations such as removing air conditioning gas, personal items and most of the fuel. However, you only pay for the parking space on the ship’s deck and that is why it is cheaper. However, if you have an expensive car or personal items to ship to Sweden, then it is best to select container shipping. You get to choose between 20 feet or 40 feet containers depending upon your requirements.
