How do we ship your items to Sweden?

Shipping to Sweden can be carried out via road freight or air freight.

  • Road freight is a very cost effective way of shipping your goods to Sweden, but it does take longer.
  • Air freight is more expensive, as the cost is calculated by the total weight of the load you are shipping. We recommend this option if you need to send small items to Sweden, quickly.

We offer two container options, when shipping to Sweden – a shared container or an exclusive container.

  • Shared container: We recommend this option when shipping smaller, personal items. The effects will be shipped to Sweden in a shared container, and you will only be charged for the space your goods take up.
  • Exclusive container: We recommend this option when shipping larger items, such as furniture or vehicles. The effects will be sent to Sweden in their own container, and you will be charged for the entire space in the container, whether you use it all up or not.

Sending baggage to Sweden

If you are looking to send baggage to Sweden – we can do that too. We will arrange for packing cartons to be dropped off at your UK location in advance of your scheduled shipment day. Once packed, we will collect the cartons and send them onward for transit. In Sweden, we will take care of customs clearance and will deliver the goods to their destination.
