Moving Household Goods to Norway

When moving household goods to Norway from the USA, certain regulations and tax exemptions apply. If you have owned your household goods for at least 12 months, you can bring them into Norway without paying duty or taxes. However, if the items are new (owned for less than 12 months), you may be required to pay duty on those specific items.

The following items are generally considered as household goods when moving to Norway:

  • Furniture
  • Books
  • Bedding
  • Clothing
  • Kitchenware
  • Appliances
  • Housewares
  • Electronics, such as TVs, etc.

Of course, the list can be extended, but not everything can be brought in, especially when moving to Norway from a non-EU jurisdiction. The advantage of hiring an international household mover is that they know all the details of shipping personal belongings and make sure you don’t include something in a container that can delay shipping.

SDC International Shipping is an expert in relocating household goods to Norway. We also offer a packing service to protect high-value items. In addition, we can help you obtain international moving insurance. You will be reimbursed for any damage or loss in case of unforeseen events during the ocean or air freight.  

Hassle-free Vehicle Shipping to Norway

Are you considering shipping your car to Norway from the USA? Look no further! At SDC International Shipping, we provide hassle-free and dependable car shipping services to ensure a smooth transition for your vehicle.

Benefits of Shipping in a Container

When it comes to shipping your car, choosing a containerized shipment is the optimal choice for several reasons:

1. Enhanced Security and Protection

Opting for a containerized shipment means your car will be safely enclosed within a dedicated container, providing an extra layer of security and protection during transportation. Unlike Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo) shipments, where vehicles are exposed to the elements, containerized shipments shield your car from potential damage caused by harsh weather conditions, debris, or accidental scratching.

2. Exclusive Use of the Container

With a containerized shipment, you have the advantage of a dedicated container for your vehicle. Unlike RoRo shipments, where multiple cars are loaded and secured together, a solo container ensures your car won’t share space with other customers’ vehicles. This significantly reduces the risk of potential damage that may arise from the movement or shifting of nearby vehicles during transit.

3. Personalized Packing and Additional Cargo

Shipping your car in a container grants you the flexibility to pack personal belongings or other items inside the same container, allowing for a more efficient and cost-effective move. You can utilize any extra space within the container, maximizing its capacity and avoiding the need for separate shipments for your car and personal items.

4. Greater Privacy and Confidentiality

Containerized shipments provide an added layer of privacy and confidentiality. Your vehicle will be concealed within the container, protecting it from prying eyes and maintaining your privacy throughout the shipping process.

Cost of Car Shipping to Norway from the USA

When it comes to determining the cost of shipping a car from the USA to Norway, it’s important to consider multiple variables that can affect the total price. At SDC International Shipping, we provide personalized and transparent pricing, taking into account various factors that contribute to the final cost.

Variables Affecting the Total Price

1. Service Tax (VAT): Value Added Tax (VAT) is imposed on the imported vehicle and is set at 25% in Norway. This tax is calculated based on the vehicle’s value and is an essential component of the overall shipping cost.

2. Shipping Method: The chosen shipping method, whether it’s containerized shipment or Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo), will impact the price. Containerized shipping generally incurs higher costs due to the exclusive use of a dedicated container for your vehicle’s protection.

3. Pickup Location and Final Destination: The distance between the pickup location in the USA and the final destination in Norway will influence the overall shipping cost. The transportation expenses associated with the pickup and delivery of your vehicle play a role in the final pricing.

4. Additional Costs: Storage and cleaning fees are additional factors that might contribute to the overall cost. If your vehicle needs temporary storage or requires cleaning services to comply with customs regulations, these expenses should be considered.


Affordable Shipping Solutions to Norway

Ocean Freight for Bulk Shipments

When it comes to transporting household goods and even vehicles, many of our clients opt for solo container ocean freight. This method is particularly advantageous for shipments exceeding 100 kg, as it offers the most economical solution for your needs.

Airfreight for Small Shipments

While airfreight generally entails higher costs, it doesn’t have to drain your finances when shipping smaller loads. To accommodate smaller consignments without breaking the bank, we recommend the use of shared or consolidated container options, which provide substantial cost savings.

What Else to Consider When Moving to Norway?

As you prepare for your move to Norway, it’s essential to stay informed about various aspects. Take a look at this helpful list:

  1. Transporting Special Vehicles: If you plan to ship motorcycles, boats, or RVs to Norway, rest assured that it is possible. We can assist in arranging the transportation of these items to your new destination.

  2. Furnished Rental Apartments: Many rental apartments in Norway come fully furnished. It’s worth discussing with your landlord whether you can bring your own furniture or if it’s already provided.

  3. Importing Vehicles: For detailed information on importing vehicles, we recommend referring to the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. They can provide you with the necessary guidelines and regulations.

  4. Voltage Differences: Keep in mind that Norway uses a different voltage system than many other countries. It is advisable to leave behind most of your appliances and consider purchasing new ones upon arrival.

  5. Electrical Devices: Remember to bring converters or adapters for small electrical devices such as laptops and smartphones. These will allow you to use your devices with the Norwegian electrical outlets.

  6. Traveling with Pets: If you’re bringing your beloved pet with you, begin the process of obtaining the required vaccinations, health certificate, and international passport. It’s also important to check with the Norwegian District Office to ensure your dog is allowed in Norway.

  7. Popular Destinations: Oslo, Bergen, and Stavanger are among the popular shipping destinations in Norway. Our services can facilitate the transport of your belongings to these and other locations throughout the country.

  8. Customs Regulations: Stay up to date with customs regulations by visiting the official website of the Norwegian customs authority, Skatteetaten. It provides valuable information regarding what you can bring into the country and any applicable duties or restrictions.

By staying informed and following these guidelines, your move to Norway will be more seamless and stress-free. Feel free to reach out to us for further assistance and guidance throughout your relocation process.
