For the last 10 years, we have worked with local and international customers to ship their vehicles from the United States to Sweden. Our shipping process is extremely simple. You get an instant online quote using our car shipping calculator below, and then you fill out our online shipping form. Then we begin to make arrangements to collect the vehicle, and submit documentation to US customs for export. Once the cars arrive at on of our loading facilities in California or New York, we begin to load the vehicle into a container. The cheapest ports for shipping cars to Spain are currently Gavle, Gothenburg, and Stockholm.
Shipping from the USA to Sweden can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,600 per car. Transit time is around 35 days from California and 21 days from New York.
CAR SHIPPING INSURANCE
When shipping anything overseas, insurance is always an option. It is calculated based on the vehicle's value.
Car Import Tax in Sweden
Importing cars to Sweden is more expensive compared to other EU nations such asGermanyor theNetherlands. As of 2016, the import duty is 10% + 25% VAT.
However, if you are importing a classic car to Sweden, you may be able to import it cheaper. If the car is over 30 years old, in its original unmodified condition, and if it is a type or model which is no longer manufactured you can import it duty-free, and only pay 12% VAT. For more information visit theSweden Customs website.
We also import cars to the United States from Sweden.
Documents Required for Export
Shipping your car from the United States requires the clearance of US customs. This step requires a few documents to be submitted to prove to the US government that you own the car. Here are the documents required:
Bill of Sale for the vehicle
Original Vehicle Title - if it currently has a lien on it, you must also provide a lien release letter
Copy of Passport (if you are an international citizen without a US passport)
Copy of EIN letter if you are a US citizen
Contact us if you have any questions about the documents required to ship your car overseas to Georgia.
By using a container for shipping, we can load anywhere from 1 to 6 cars (depending on size), the vehicles can either run and drive, or be project cars. We offer consolidation when shipping to the port, saving you money by shipping your vehicles along with other cars in the same container. When shipping high-value vehicles, we can load them in their own dedicated 20ft or 40ft containers.
Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars overseas. However, unlike with containarized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car be in run and drive condition to be able to drive on and off the ship. The ports which support RoRo vary widely, and so do the rates.
If you require your vehicle overseas as quickly as possible, we recommend shipping the car via Air-Freight service. Compared to lengthy shipping times and possible port delays when shipping in a container or via RoRo, shipping your car by Air is the quickest shipping options. Transit time is estimated at around 3 to 10 days, depending on the documentation and customs requirements.
How Motorcycles Are Shipped Overseas
Motorcycles are a popular import from the US, and most customers use a container. You can fit up to 8 motorcycles in a 20ft container and up to 16 in a 40ft container. They are securely strapped and braced. This makes it the perfect solution for wholesale buyers and dealers. Use the shipping calculator on this page to get a quote, or contact us.
Another option is shipping your motorcycle via air freight to any international airport. It's a more expensive option, and it requires a custom crate to be built around the bike. However, air freight will minimize transit time.
