Umeå Is located in the northern part of Sweden and is the capital of Västerbotten County. It is also located on the Ume River and is counted as the one of the largest city in Norrland.

If you want to bring your vehicle to Sweden when you come for an extended stay, you will need to pay a few, pay the taxes, and deal with all types of paperwork.  There are stringent import guidelines as per the Swedish Customs Authority that need to adhere to when you plan to ship your car from USA to Sweden.

Quote on Auto Shipping

Shipping a car to Umeå can cost anywhere between $2100 and $5000 to ship. This price is based on the standard size vehicle and no taxes and duties are figured in this price. It’s easier and cheaper to ship a motorcycle or smaller vehicle.

You will need to pay close attention to the requirements and rules or regulations that are associated with transporting a vehicle. Any delays or not having the proper paperwork can cost you more money. Your shipping agent can go over these fees and rules and regulations with you.

Documents for Shipping Vehicles

In order to clear U.S Customs as well as the port in Sweden, you will need to have a large amount of paperwork necessary to prove that your vehicle is yours. You can make copies for these documents and keep the originals for your records. These documents include:

  • Valid passport
  • International driver’s license
  • A detailed bill that shows where you purchased the vehicle
  • Original title to the vehicle
  • Proof of a current insurance policy
  • Swedish insurance while you are driving in Umeå

You, the owner of the vehicle, will need to be present at the port in Sweden to claim the vehicle once it clears customs. If you are unable to be there, you can rely on your shipping agent by signing a power of attorney that allows them to pick the vehicle up for you in your absence.

Regulations for Imported Motor Vehicles

Swedish regulations are in effect regarding importing a vehicle. It is your responsibility to adhere to these regulations throughout the process. One regulation states that any vehicle coming into Sweden will need to be owned by you for a period of at least twelve months. Once your vehicle is in Sweden, you won’t be able to sell the vehicle for one year. The U.S driving license issued to you while you were in the United States can be used for a period of one year in Sweden. Once it expires, you will need to obtain a Swedish driver’s license.

In order to get tax exemption on your import, you cannot have another import for a period of three years. You will need to show Swedish government proof that you are able to stay in Sweden if you plan to stay for more than three months. You will be required to apply for a personal ID number issued in Sweden. You can find the paperwork at the Swedish Tax Office.  You will be responsible for paying a 25% VAT in addition to all taxes and duties for importing your vehicle.

One important detail that you will need to decide on before your import request is complete is if you want to ship your vehicle by way of Roll On/ Roll Off or container shipping. If you choose Roll On/ Roll Off, your vehicle will be driven directly onto the deck of a freighter ship where it is strapped down in a bay to keep it from moving while the ship is in motion. You will only be charged for your spot on the ship deck in the bay. You will have to prepare your vehicle for shipment if you choose this method.

Container shipping is another option which gives your vehicle protection from the weather and flying debris that sometimes occurs while at sea. You will choose from a 20 or 40 foot container.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“Just wanted you to know that the car arrived last Friday, the 29th with no problems. The driver was very nice and patient with driving directions! Thanks for your fine service and Happy Holidays!”

“I changed my home and had to move 3 vehicles from Washington to West Virginia. My delivery window was short, and I wanted to avoid asking friends to travel such a distance to help out. Due to our own moving schedule, the cars had to arrive on a deadline. We need them to get to work. Joe arranged for a truck to arrive the very next day. The price was good, and I didn’t need to pay any deposit. He took my calls every time throughout the shipment, so I always knew where my cars were. They all arrived in perfect shape on the earliest day they were estimated to arrive on. A1 Auto Transport offered an impeccable service, easy and prompt. If I ever need such services again, I’ll definitely call.”

“The car arrived in a very professional manner. The driver was extremely polite and was extra careful as the rain continued to pour down. He made every right move to see the transaction was a complete success. I can give an excellent "A+" rating to your services.”

“I just wanted to say thanks for bringing my car Coast to Coast in October, 2005. It was my first auto transport shipment and a painless one to boot! My Beamer arrived intact w/o a scratch!! Special thanks to Emily and Maggie for their courteous patience with a minor error, and to Jim of Dispatch, who is now in Sales. Their friendly and polite customer service made it a truly commendable experience. You are "A1"!”
