Checking the Eligibility of the Vehicle
When shipping a car from Sweden to the US, it is important to make sure the car is legal for entry. First off, if the car is already US specs or a returning US vehicle then it passes the check. Otherwise, there are a few alternative criteria to import the vehicle. One such exemption is if the car is over 25 years old. These classify as classic cars and bypass DOT and EPA requirements. This is the most popular type of car to import from Sweden and also the easiest to complete.
