Volvo Home Shipment

Home Shipment Program

When the time comes, we'll ship your Volvo home.
Home Shipment Program

The Program

As a Volvo VIP, you have access to a host of enviable savings and benefits while you plan your return or your move from Europe to the USA. When the time comes, you won't have to worry about the trouble involved in shipping your Volvo from Europe. The Volvo Home Shipment Program provides our customers the ability to travel through Europe with the ease of dropping off outside of Göteborg.

If you choose Göteborg there are no extra charges associated with your home shipment. For other locations, a transfer charge is applied (Dropping Off Your Car) to facilitate the transfer of the vehicle from the drop off location to the port of departure from Europe. The transfer time from the Home Shipment Agent to the port of departure is 4 to 14 days, depending on the distance and the carrier.

For Tourist customers planning on staying the maximum 6 months, the vehicle must be dropped off back in Gothenburg, drop offs outside of Gothenburg have a maximum of 2 months.

To Do List

Taking advantage of the Home Shipment Program is easy. A few legal and other formalities have to be observed, however.

  1. You will receive a Volvo Home Shipment Voucher with your new Volvo. Keep this valuable document, which proves that you are entitled to the home shipment service.
  2. Fill out our Schedule Drop Off Form 2 to 3 business days before your planned drop off date.
  3. Be sure the car is cleaned before handing it over. The condition of the car will be inspected prior to transport. NO personal items should be left in the car. Please note, should the car be dirty, the shipping company may refuse to load the car.
  4. Sign the condition report before you leave the agent’s office. A copy should be kept.
  5. For cars shipped to the US a special catalytic converter document is required by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). You will be given this form to fill in when you hand over your car at the authorized home shipment agent.
  6. The fuel level of the car should not exceed more than 25% of the tank capacity at the time of drop off.
