Shipping and Drop Off

Shipping and Drop Off

The Volvo Overseas Delivery Program makes bringing a car back from Europe quick and easy. All you have to do is contact one of the official drop-off locations in Europe, make an appointment, drive your Volvo to the location on a week day and present the Volvo Home Shipment voucher (plus any other required documents). Your Volvo is then shipped to the U.S.

The Volvo Home Shipment Program handles most of the charges.  In fact, shipping is free of charge as long as it happens within 6 months of pickup in Europe.  You only pay to transport your Volvo from one of the official drop-off locations in Europe to the loading port.  Or you can use the transport services from Goteborg, Sweden and pay nothing at all.

Bringing your Volvo back from Europe is quick and easy.  Contact the staff at one of the locations in Europe to confirm use of the service and to make necessary arrangements prior to leaving your Volvo.  The Drop Off Centers are only open Monday through Friday. After making arrangements drive your Volvo to one of the official Drop Off Centers in Europe and present the Volvo Home Shipment voucher (plus any other required documents).

In accordance with European customs regulations valid from July 1, 2009 all Tourist Program cars must be exported from Europe within 6 months of delivery, provided the exportation is done from one of the following drop off locations in Scandinavia countries:

Goteborg, Sweden   -  Stockholm, Sweden

When using other drop off locations (outside Scandinavia) the export declaration must be done when you take delivery of the car, which limits your use of the car in Europe to 2 months.

No matter where you live in America, your car can be shipped from Europe to an authorized U.S. Volvo dealer.  The approximate shipping time to ports on the East Coast is four to six weeks and for the West Coast six to eight weeks.  The average inland ground transportation time to a U.S. Volvo dealer is two weeks.  For deliveries to Alaska and Hawaii, please add three more weeks.
