Why More and More Brits Are Moving to Sweden From UK

If you’re looking for a heightened sense of well-being, integrated gender equality, and a highly efficient infrastructure, Sweden is the place to move to. It consistently ranks in the top 10 happiest countries in the world, places a high value on environmental conservation and has pledged to stop using fossil fuels by 2050. Stockholm was designated Europe’s first ‘green’ capital in 2010.

Sweden has built a reputation for being a supportive environment for start-ups. This may have something to do with it’s position as the world’s second most innovative country. The standard of living is high and most jobs offer generous holiday allowances. It’s a country that’s proactively looking to fill its skills gaps by attracting European migrants, which may be one of the reasons many Brits are now considering moving to Sweden.


Choose Schepens for Your Removals to Sweden

If you’ve made up your mind about moving to Sweden, you’ll probably be looking for a removals company with extensive experience in European removals. Schepens has been moving families and professionals throughout Europe for over a century. We’re a 4th generation, family run company with moving in our blood. We regularly ship to Sweden and our removal teams know the country well.

A European removals quote needs to be detailed to be accurate. We allocate a dedicated Move Co-ordinator to each query for this reason. If you decide to choose Schepens for your removals to Sweden, your Move Co-ordinator will then work with you on a ‘Removals Plan’. This details the deadlines that will need to be hit, and the removals services you will require.

Schepens for Moving to Sweden From UK

The aim of every Schepens move is to reduce the stress and anxiety of our clients. We do all we can to ensure that moving to Sweden occurs when and how you want it to. We ship regularly to Scandinavia using our road train vehicles, so we can offer flexible scheduling. If you’re looking for a budget move we offer shared containers, or part load removals to Sweden.

At Schepens we consider every move to be unique and we create tailor-made removal planning for each client. Early on you’ll be asked whether you have any non-standard items you want to include in your removals planning. We have experience in managing specialist removals of art objects, musical instruments or antiques and we’ll create a bespoke process to manage their transport.

Obtaining a Residence Permit

So long as we remain in the EU, British citizens don’t need a visa to travel to Sweden. You can remain in the country or 6 months before you need to apply for a Residence Permit. Thereafter you will need to apply for long term residence. You will also need to register with the Swedish Population Register and apply for a personal identity number which is used for tax, identity and health services.

Healthcare in Sweden

Sweden is considered to have excellent healthcare provision, and the services are available to everyone. Swedish residents pay for healthcare when they access it, by paying a nominal fee. UK citizens can use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for the first 6 months; this will be superseded by your personal identity number, once your registered as a long term resident.

Education in Sweden

Sweden has a great track record when it comes to education. They provide a de-centralised system which is guided by overarching goals and values. The result is free education with a high level of participation from parents and local communities. The curriculum is taught in Swedish so if your children are slightly older you may want to consider one of the many international schools operating across the country.

A Range of Schepens Services

If this is your first European move you may be finding the scale of organisation required somewhat daunting. What we’ve learnt in over 100 years of removals is that every single move will bring its own unique challenges. Your Move Co-ordinator will work with you to develop a bespoke removals plan, containing only those services you need.

Your removals to Sweden plan might include:

  • Packing – our professional, BAR trained packing team can help with packing up your house, clearing a particular room, or supporting you on moving day. They will label boxes clearly and accurately, and generate a comprehensive itinerary. If you would prefer to manage the packing yourself, we will provide professional packing materials for you.
  • Insurance – all your goods will be insured whilst in transit. For extra peace of mind we can arrange additional accidental damage, or extended liability cover.
  • Storage – if you’re moving to Sweden for work, or to study, you may wish to put some of your furniture of goods in storage whilst you’re away. Schepens has secure storage facilities and we can arrange a door-to-door storage service as part of your removal to Sweden.
  • Removals Fleet – Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which maintain a constant temperature and humidity, run on air ride suspension and boast an adjustable bearing system, which ensures little or no movement of vehicle content.
