About us at SBK Moving
SBK Moving is in its fourth generation of ownership by the same family and was founded by the present owner’s forebears. The founder’s successors are still running the operation to this very day. In fact, our team has just been joined by a member of the family’s fifth generation.
We offer a complete and quality removal service in Sweden and to destinations worldwide. In the course of many years, the firm has occupied a unique position in the market place, ensuring secure and conscientious moves of household effects to and from Sweden, with quality as the watchword.
We have spawned a large network of professional removal companies, with which we collaborate. This means we are able to function as a secure portal to and from Sweden.
Knowledgeable and experienced personnel
SBK Moving is the only removal firm in Sweden that can offer a complete international service whereby our own personnel take care of both the packing and the move itself, using our own removal vehicles – with this all being handled by our own removal coordinators.
These internal operatives oversee all aspects of the international removal process. They are responsible for all contacts with the airfreight and shipping lines, as well with our international collaborators. The removal coordinator arranges the date of packing as well as dealing with issues relating to customs. They also stand as a guarantee to ensure a problem-free move.
The networks in which we participate serve to reinforce our seal of approval. Our cooperation implies that we are able to guarantee our customers a consistently high standard of service throughout the whole moving process.
