Schepens is the Perfect Choice For Your Move to Sweden From UK
Despite it’s proximity, Sweden can feel a world away from British culture, which is part of its attraction for northern Europeans. It’s known for its socially progressive government and the sophistication of its public services. It’s also a great place to bring up children, as the the childcare benefits are amongst the best in the world. Taxes are high, however, to fund the Swedish egalitarian ethos.
Sweden is twice the size of the UK and only 15% of the country is densley populated, leaving 78% covered with forest and 7% of stunning lakes. Stockholm is the capital and it’s currently considered one of the coolest, most cosmopolitan cities to move to, but Malmo and Gothenburg have a great reputation with younger Swedes who consider them hip alternative, with a younger more diverse population.

Choose Schepens for Your move to Sweden From UK
Whether you’re moving to Sweden as part of a job relocation, or you want a new start for your family in this child-friendly country, choosing a reliable, experienced removals partner is key to a successful removals process. Schepens has been helping families move to Sweden for over a century now; we’re a fourth generation, family-run business with the professional experience to streamline your move to Sweden from the UK.
Your Schepens Move Co-Ordinator will help you to create a detailed ‘Removals Plan’ early on. This will include all the deadlines you need to hit in order to achieve a relatively stress-free move. Dependent on the reason for your move, we can help you to decide what to take and what to put in our secure storage facilities, located across the UK.
Schepens for Sweden Removals and Storage
We know that ideally our clients want their goods and furniture to arrive in Sweden on the day they move into their new homes, so that’s what we plan for. We ship to Sweden a number of times each week which means that we can be flexible when scheduling, and we can offer competitive pricing on shared or dedicated containers.
If you have any items you would prefer to store, rather than transport to Sweden from the UK, Schepens has a door-to-door storage service and secure facilities. Should you have any non-standard items such as musical instruments, fine art, or valuable antiques we will create a bespoke transportation plan for them, and offer appropriate insurance options.
Swedish ‘Right of Residence’
As an EU citizen you have the right to work, study or live in Sweden without a residence permit. You also have the right to start and operate a private business. The right of EU citizens to stay in Sweden without a residence permit is called ‘Right of Residence’. You have right of residence if you are employed, self-employed, a student or have sufficient means to support yourself. If you have right of residence in Sweden you do not need to contact the Swedish Migration Agency.
Swedish Personal Identity Number
Once you’ve moved to Sweden, a priority is getting a personal identity number as this is your passport to living as a Swedish citizen and accessing a full range of services. You will be sent your identity number by the Swedish Tax Agency. You should also register with the Swedish Social Insurance Agency.
The Swedish healthcare system comparable to the British NHS, although there are some fees attached to specific medical services. Receiving a doctor’s visit will incur a capped fee, for example. In line with the Swedes’ excellent child-centred culture, medical treatment for children is 100% free.
Education in Sweden
Education is mandatory for young people in Sweden between the ages 6-16. The education resources in Sweden are highly regarded and are free for Swedish citizens. Swedish universities are second in the global research rankings and, if you live in Sweden, they are free to attend.
