Hi all

Apologies if this has already been raised.
I'm looking at moving to Stockholm from London in the second half of the year to be with my Swedish boyfriend.

I'd appreciate any links or recommendations of moving companies / shipping companies. I don't have a lot of stuff (not enough for a shipping container) - I currently live in a one bedroom house. No furniture, just personal items (books, papers), ornaments, artwork, clothing, footwear, some household stuff.

I'm happy to do the packing myself, but I do want a company that will deliver the goods into the apartment - not a kerbside drop off. I'll probably go with shipping to save cost and take as extra baggage on the plane anything I need immediately.

I might need to investigate renting a storage locker in Stockholm too, so if anyone uses one that they could recommend that would be great too.

Any advice, or things that I might not have thought about would be appreciated. Thanks for your helps and recommendations!

Katy

Most storage facilities in Stockholm and the suburbs will set you back about 900:- to 1000:- per month for a small lockup. http://www.shurgard.se



Thank you - will add to my list!

Hi,

Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread, but I'm looking to ship a couple of small car seats from the UK to Sweden (they should both fit in a single 120x70x70 box). Most regular shipping options are quite pricey, so I was thinking that I might be able to buy some unused space in a moving van. I live close to Malmö, so any truck from the UK should pass by right where I live.

Katy, if you (or anyone else in the same situation) are interested, just send me a message. I'm quite flexible with shipping dates.
