Removals to Sweden – Frequently Asked Questions

by MatthewMoving to Sweden

If you planning to move to Sweden, you may have some questions. Here are answers to the most common provided by MyCheapRemovals.

How much does it cost to move from the UK to Sweden with MyCheapRemovals?

The total expense associated with shipping your items is influenced by various considerations, encompassing both the size and weight of your belongings, as well as the geographical span between the pick-up and drop-off points.
If you wish to acquire a preliminary cost estimate from Mycheapremovals, simply navigate to the primary webpage and fill out the provided form. Furnish essential information such as the locations for collection and delivery, an approximation of the load volume, and your intended moving date. Upon submission of the form, including your email address and the selection of the “email me quote” option, you will promptly receive a detailed breakdown of costs corresponding to different volume alternatives. Additionally, an email will be dispatched to you outlining potential reductions in the overall price.

Below, we provide approximate prices for removals from the United Kingdom to Sweden:

How long does it take for my belongings to arrive in Sweden?

The time required for delivery can be influenced by a range of factors. Opting for the 15m3, 20m3, or 30m3 alternatives generally expedite the delivery process, as these options involve dedicated transportation without consolidating your load with others. In contrast, the 5m3 and 10m3 choices entail shared loading space, which may lead to multiple stops along the route to your destination.
Nevertheless, in both scenarios, our commitment is to ensure that delivery is accomplished within a maximum timeframe of four days. We aim to provide flexibility in service options to cater to varying preferences and urgency levels, ensuring a tailored experience for each customer.

What are the living costs in Sweden in comparison to the UK?

Sweden and the UK have distinct living costs, and these can vary based on individual circumstances, cities, and lifestyle choices. Here’s a general overview, but keep in mind that specific costs can change over time.

Housing:

In major cities like Stockholm and Gothenburg, housing costs can be relatively high in Sweden. However, they might still differ from those in cities across the UK.
London, in particular, is known for its expensive housing market, which can significantly impact the overall living costs in the UK.

Utilities:

Utility costs, including electricity, heating, cooling, water, and garbage, may vary. In some cases, Sweden might have higher costs due to its colder climate, necessitating more heating expenses.

Groceries:

Sweden generally has higher food prices compared to the UK. However, this can also depend on individual shopping habits, local markets, and the availability of products.

Transportation:

Public transportation in Sweden is known for its efficiency but might be relatively more expensive compared to the UK. The cost of owning a car, including fuel and insurance, can also vary.

Healthcare:

Sweden has a publicly funded healthcare system, and residents generally have access to medical services. In the UK, healthcare is also publicly funded through the National Health Service (NHS).

Education:

If you have children and plan to send them to international or private schools, costs can vary. Both Sweden and the UK have reputable education systems.

Entertainment and Dining Out:

Costs for leisure activities, dining out, and entertainment can differ based on the region and personal preferences.
It’s crucial to note that living costs can change, and it’s recommended to consult recent and location-specific data for the most accurate comparisons. Additionally, changes in currency exchange rates can impact the relative costs between Sweden and the UK.

Can I move to Sweden with my pet?

Yes, you can move to Sweden with your pet, but there are specific regulations and requirements that you must comply with to ensure a smooth and legal relocation for your furry companion. Here are some general steps and considerations:

Microchip:

Ensure that your pet has an ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15-digit pet microchip. This is a crucial step as it provides a unique identification for your pet.

Rabies Vaccination:

Ensure that your pet is vaccinated against rabies. The vaccination should be administered after the microchip is implanted. Note that there is a minimum waiting period after the vaccination before your pet can enter Sweden.

Pet Passport:

Obtain a pet passport or an official veterinary certificate with details of your pet’s microchip number, rabies vaccination information, and other relevant health details.
Tapeworm Treatment (for Dogs):

If you are bringing a dog to Sweden, ensure that it receives treatment against tapeworms between 24 and 120 hours before entering the country.

Check for Additional Requirements:

Depending on the type of pet and your country of origin, there might be additional requirements. For example, certain breeds of dogs may be subject to specific regulations.

Transportation:

Choose a pet-friendly mode of transportation. If you are flying, check with the airline about their pet transportation policies and requirements.

Contact the Swedish Board of Agriculture:

It’s advisable to contact the Swedish Board of Agriculture or the Swedish embassy in your country to get the most up-to-date information on pet import regulations.

Quarantine:

Sweden does not have a general quarantine requirement for pets entering the country. However, they must meet the health and vaccination criteria.

Always keep in mind when you move to Sweden that regulations can change, so it’s essential to check with the relevant authorities close to your moving date to ensure compliance with current requirements. Additionally, consulting with a veterinarian experienced in pet travel can be beneficial in navigating the process successfully.
