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. 

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. 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.
  3. Sign the condition report before you leave the agent’s office. A copy should be kept.
  4. 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.
  5. The fuel level of the car should not exceed more than 25% of the tank capacity at the time of drop off.

Dropping Off Your Car

The locations below are where you can hand over your car for sale shipment from Europe to North America. If you choose Göteborg there are no extra charges.

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. 

Your car will then be shipped on the first available vessel to your destination in North America. Contact information valid as from April 2021. Please note that address and price information are subject to change without notice.
