Travelling to or from Sweden? My Baggage can help you with your luggage.
Effortlessly transport your excess baggage overseas with My Baggage. We offer a convenient door to door luggage collection and delivery service at fantastic low rates, helping you to save time and money on your travels.
Sweden is a Scandinavian country situated in Northern Europe. It borders Norway to the west and north Finland to the east. Sweden boasts a population of approximately 10.2 million.
Whether you’re travelling to Sweden to explore what the country has to offer, to study abroad, or even to relocate permanently, there’s always the pressing question of how to transport your personal belongings there in one piece, and how you can keep costs as low as possible whilst doing it.
Carrying Luggage On Your Flight To Sweden
The easiest option for getting your luggage from A to B is by carrying it with you on your flight to Sweden. However, not only do you have to contend with travelling long-haul with a number of heavy suitcases in tow, but those excess baggage fees can mount up fairly quickly if you’re not extra careful.
International Removals To Sweden
Another option is hiring an international removals company, which is an ideal option if you have numerous large, bulky items that need transporting to your new home in Sweden. However, the cost of hiring an international removals company can be quite substantial, and depending where you’re coming from, it can be an exceptionally slow voyage, meaning you risk being left without your worldly possessions for an extended period of time.
My Baggage offers a welcomed, affordable approach to transporting your luggage and heavy bags to your travel destination. By offering a convenient, door to door luggage shipping service, we make it our aim to remove all of the stress and costs involved, so you can wave goodbye to expensive airline baggage fees and out of budget removals.

My Baggage is open to everyone, whether you are a business user, a holiday maker, a student, an expat or simply moving house. No matter your reason, absolutely anyone can take advantage of our competitive prices and excellent door to door shipping services.

Although My Baggage specialises in luggage shipping, we don’t stop there. With My Baggage, you can transport all kinds of goods to Sweden, including sporting equipment, musical instruments and parcels.
Send Boxes to Sweden
With My Baggage, you can send thoughtful gifts and care-packages to your loved one living overseas. Nothing quite beats a gift to let someone know you’ve been thinking about them. Before you go ahead with your booking, be sure to do some research into Swedish customs, particularly when it comes to sending gifts. Make sure to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box and cushion items with plenty of internal packaging, so as to avoid any damage occurring whilst in transit.
Shipping Musical Instruments To Sweden
You may wish to bring your musical instrument with you to Sweden, however, depending on its size, in order to do so, your airline may require you to book an additional seat on your flight. With My Baggage, you can avoid paying additional, substantial costs with your airline by transporting your instrument with us.
Shipping Sporting Equipment To Sweden
It may not necessarily be the first destination that you think of for skiing, but believe it or not, Sweden has a wealth of ski resorts for you to visit and enjoy the sport. If you’re off to Sweden for a sport-related holiday, My Baggage can help you to easily transport your large items such as skis or golf clubs to Sweden, erasing the worry of needing to rent equipment when you get there. Or worse, having to pay extortionate oversized or overweight baggage fees on your flight.

My Baggage specialises in shipping personal effects anywhere in the world. Our convenient service gives you the opportunity to ship almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase. However, it is important to keep in mind that due to security and customs, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried.
As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
When sending to Sweden, the following items are also prohibited:
Imitation and pirated products
It is important to keep in mind that there are specific items that can be carried, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and as such, should be sent at your own risk. If you do need to send any non-compensation items within your luggage, please ensure they are packaged securely and appropriately with internal cushioning.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to Sweden.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Sweden with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong cardboard boxes to package your items so they are suitable for transit.
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.
If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.

When shipping to Sweden from a country outside the EU, such as Canada or the USA, you are legally required to complete and attach a customs invoice to your shipment. If, however, you’re shipping to Sweden from inside the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own personal research into Swedish customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Sweden. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Sweden and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
When completing your customs documents, it is important to do so properly and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you will be required to accurately describe each item included in the package. For example, you would declare: “4 x t-shirts, 2 x pairs of jeans, 3 x dresses” etc, as opposed to “10x clothing”.
