I hired a company years back to ship a car from Texas to Bremerhaven port in GE. Paid about 1000 dollars US. It is a requirement it has less than an 1/8th of a tank for safety reasons. But google is your friend I would just google for car shipment companies and read reviews. You can do two types drive onto a big container with multiple cars or individual container. Obviously the individual is more expensive but has more protection.

Can't remember who I used was like 10 years ago...

Why are you shipping a car to Sweden? You don't have to say, but I'm curious. If I were moving there, for example, I would sell my car and buy one there. But I don't know if there are humungous taxes there or something making this cheaper.

I live here now: D I been living here for six month with my girlfriend.

well the thing is subaru here almost any model goes for 20000$ same for rx7 fd l, and skyline r33 gtr.

instead of paying that much I rather just pay 3000$ in taxes and 2000$ in shipping and another 1000$ on paper work.

You might want to investigate Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (WWL). They actually own ships and port facilities and move cars from the US East Coast to Europe ports, including Gothenburg, SE. Subaru uses them to ship cars from its plant in Lafayette, IN to Europe via the Port of Baltimore and WWL has an office there in Lafayette. An ideal situation would be to drop your car off at the Subaru plant in IN and it gets shipped to the Port of Baltimore via train with a bunch of new Subaru Tribecas. I wouldn't hold my breath on that, though. It is possible that WWL can recommend a carrier that can safely move your car from Sioux City to one of their port facilities on the East Coast.

Here are some WWL links.

The US DoD is, by far, the largest customer which needs to arrange shipment of POVs out of the US. You might want to try and figure out who the DoD uses as contractors.

I actually ended up calling WWL and they sent me to transglobal logistics.
Il be paying 950$ in total on their side that includes handling and getting it thru US customs.
My parents are dropping the car off 9-13 of august.
Transport boat leaves around the 21 i believe i have it written down somewhere.
Arrives about september 21st about 15 minutes away from me at a dock.

Good news is il pay about 500$ in taxes for swedish custom another 100$ in temp insurance here that will allow me to drive on the roads for a week.

After that about 100$ to get the car registered.
This is ciming out so much cheaper then i thought.

I assume you've read your shipper's FAQ at http://www.tgal.us/vehicle-faqs, which states:
Quote:
What can I leave in my vehicle during shipment?

Only items that pertain to the vehicle, such as factory issue items including the spare tire, factory issued hand tools, first aide kit, warning triangle, fire extinguisher and permanently installed accessories can be left in your vehicle during shipment. Spare parts, personal effects, cleaning fluids, aerosol products, gas cans, etc., cannot remain in the vehicle. You can arrange shipment of any spare parts or personal effects, separately. For information on shipping spare parts and personal effects, please contact us at 1 800 264 8167 or 972 602 1670.

What do I need to do in order to prepare my vehicle for shipment?

Full details will be provided at time of booking, however, please make sure that your vehicle does not contain more than 1/4 tank of fuel (for Ro/Ro) or 1/8 tank of fuel (for containerized) at time of shipment. Assure that the vehicle is clean inside and outside and the undercarriage is free from any soil and agriculture pests. All personal items must be removed. Only items which pertain to the vehicle, such as factory issue items and permanently installed accessories can be shipped with your vehicle.

We also recommend that you remove your car manual and license plates and hand carry these items with you at time of shipment.
I, personally, wouldn't attempt to stash ANY moisture-absorbing product in the car. You could run into a real problem if customs inspectors find it in Sweden, especially if it relies on chemicals. The voyage shouldn't be any worse for your car than if it spent a month on Cape Cod during a summer vacation.

Good to know.

I encourage you to start keeping a diary about this project. Then, after everything's done and you're driving on permanent Swedish plates, you can give us a nice write-up.

Many people wonder about shipping their high-performance US- and Japanese-made cars temporarily to Europe for an epic driving vacation. We imagine tooling around at speed on German Autobahns (or even the Nürburgring) and taking snapshots of the car with the Eiffel Tower or the Roman Colosseum in the background. It would be nice to have a how-to guide with details and costs in order to feed those fantasies.

Having shipped 3 cars to Germany from the US and back (over the years): I agree with Coco Beach Bum ,

Just give it a good wash and wax before and after the shipment. Give extra attention to the undercarrage.
