Moving to Sweden

When moving to Sweden, you might consider taking your belongings with you. The easiest way to move to Sweden is by road transport. Because Sweden is a member of the European Union, you do not have to deal with customs formalities and the accompanying customs documents. Please note that a packing list is required if you pack the shipment yourself.

The costs of moving to Sweden

Transport to Sweden is offered in two ways, namely through direct transport and groupage transport. With direct transport the costs are higher because a lorry will drive to Sweden especially for your shipment. With groupage, the costs are lower because your shipment is in a lorry with others.

How long will my belongings take to get to Sweden?

With direct transport, the average transit time is 7 days (depending on the location in Sweden of course). With groupage, your shipment will wait in our warehouse in the Netherlands until enough shipments are available and then it will go on the next lorry, therefore this type of transport usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks.

What should you take with you when you emigrate to Sweden?

To help you prepare for your trip, we have put together some tips for you. Make sure that documents, keys, medicines, jewellery and other important items are not included in your shipment. You should always take these items with you personally.


ClothingSwedish people in Stockholm dress fashionably, but also neatly like in any other international city. Shorts are only worn during sporting activities. It is advisable to bring clothes made from natural materials. These are often warmer. Appropriate rainwear and light clothing are recommended for the summer. In winter, think of warm clothes and a good warm winter jacket.
Travel plugThe electricity voltage in Sweden is about 220 Volts and the frequency is 50 Hertz. You will need a (world) adapter if you bring electrical appliances.
MedicinesCheck whether your medication is available in Sweden and the maximum amount you are allowed to take with you. Also check if you need a medical certificate for bringing medication on your trip.
Carry important documents such as passport, visa documents etc. in your hand luggage – make copies too.
Personal items
Think of your favourite toiletries, things that remind you of home and other things you can’t afford to be without.
Tip: pack a spare set of clothes in your hand luggage in case your checked luggage is delayed or lost.
