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.

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!
