Moving to Gothenburg? We offer weekly services to Sweden from the UK! From full relocations to single items; dedicated or shared-load services.
Let Matthew James take the stress out of your move…
EUROPEAN SHARED LOAD
A part/shared load service is a cost effective way to move your goods to and from your destination. The reason this service is so cost effective is that you share the vehicle with other consignments and therefore the vehicle costs are also shared. All consignments are individually prepared, numbered, labelled and inventoried to ensure all items are correctly delivered to you. The main advantage of a part load service is that you will receive the Matthew James service of excellence at the most cost effective price.
EUROPEAN PREMIUM SERVICE
A direct service combines Matthew James’ service of excellence with the added advantage of a dedicated collection date and express delivery timescale. Handling of your effects is minimised as they remain on the same vehicle throughout. Although your delivery will be carried out in conjunction with other clients’ consignments, this means you will share the cost of the vehicle and your consignment will be prioritised for onward delivery typically within 7-10 days of collection.
EUROPEAN DEDICATED SERVICE
A dedicated service gives you the flexibility to choose your collection and delivery dates. This service means you will have exclusive use of one of our bespoke removal vehicles. This service guarantees the Matthew James service of excellence and peace of mind that your moving dates can be fixed, allowing you the convenience to make travel arrangements and plan your arrival. All delivery dates are subject to EU laws on driving time. We can confirm the timing prior to any booking.

Gothenburg in west Sweden has become known by the locals as Stockholm’s younger, cooler sibling. There is something for everyone in the city, from quiet cobble stone streets to world famous music events and film festivals. Community is king here, which make such a large city of 500,000 people still feel like a cozy home.
The automotive industry, information and communication technology, logistics, medical technology, environmental technology and the maritime industries are big business in Gothenburg. As over 30% of Swedish foreign trade passes through the city’s port, this gives of a good indication as to the strength of the job market. Manufacturers like Volvo, Ericsson and Swedish East India Company have large plants in Gothenburg. Most of the locals are fluent in English, obviously a knowledge of Swedish will improve your employment potential.

Your consignment is automatically covered up to £50,000 for total loss in the event of unforeseen circumstances such as a fire or flood. In addition to this we can arrange a full-cover insurance policy via our brokers upon request.
Public transport, much like in the rest of the country, is efficient and reliable. The mixture of trams, buses, ferries and trains will take you to anywhere you need to go quickly and efficiently. An unlimited monthly ticket will cost £50 (significantly lower than travel in major UK cities like London), and the city is well connected via its overground rail network. A trip to Stockholm will take around 3 hours. Download the Reseplaneraren travel planner to find out the best way to get to your destination. There are also 60 rental stations for those who love to bike to work etc.
Most people who take root in the city will be living in apartments rather than houses. And those people will be witnessing a city in constant development, which means neighbourhoods are going to get better and better. Family friendly areas like Eriksberg and Lindholmen offer an array of cafes and restaurants. There are also plenty of entertainment options for the kids on family days out. Both of these areas also include schools and universities, so quality education is right on your door step. Magasinsgatan has become the hip and trendy area. The cobblestone streets and gourmet food trucks have transformed this area into a desirable location for expats and locals alike. Majorna is the city’s up-and-coming area. The international preschool is also located here.
If you are looking for things to amuse yourself with during your stay, then the city has no shortage of variety when it comes to entertainment. You have to start at Scandinavia’s largest amusement park, Liseberg. Gothenburg Museum of Art is also a large attraction. Taking a day trip to the Gothenburg Archipelago is easy with trips taking less than an hour. Here you can waste the day taking in the granite cliffs and fishing villages. Fika is a big part of Gothenburg culture, and there are many options to choose from when finding a place to have a coffee and slice of cake (head to Haga Nygata for a giant cinnamon bun!). Seafood is naturally a large part of the Gothenburg diet, so why not purchase some fresh from the water at the ‘Fish Church’ market.
