Have you heard of the Volvo Overseas Delivery Program before?
It’s actually pretty simple. US customers order the Volvo of their choice at their local Volvo dealer and Volvo gives you two round trip airlines tickets to Sweden, plus hotel and transportation to and from Volvo, so that you can pick up your brand new car right from the Factory Delivery Center in Gothenburg (or at any official delivery location in Europe).
With 15-day European car insurance coverage, including Swedish temporary registration, you can test out your new Volvo on Sweden’s roads with one of their tours like the Explorer tour
Here’s how their Overseas Delivery works:
1. Place your order:
Order the Volvo of your dreams from your local dealer. $3000 non-refundable deposit required to place your order.
2. Pick up your vehicle:
Pick up your new Volvo at the Gothenburg Factory Delivery Center in Sweden or any official delivery location in Europe.
3.Explore your Volvo:
Explore your Volvo on the roads of Sweden. Choose one of our specially curated tours or venture out on your own, anywhere in Europe.
4. Bring it home:
Drop off your new Volvo back in Gothenburg or any official drop-off location in Europe. Then sit back, relax and they’ll take care of all paperwork and fees, including import duties, before they ship your new Volvo home to your local U.S. dealer.
Below is the sequence of treat you get from ordering the new Volvo cars
When you land in Gothenburg, Sweden, we’ll pick you up and drive you to your hotel. The next morning, we’ll give you a ride to the Volvo Factory Delivery Center where your new Volvo awaits.
You’ll feel at home as our staff welcomes you to the Factory Delivery Center and gives you time to relax in our exclusive state-of-the-art facilities.
iii. Meet & greet:
You’ll get to know your new Volvo and all its exciting features with the help of our specially trained staff.
Have a seat at the Factory Delivery Center’s restaurant and experience the wonder of our Swedish culture with a gourmet lunch.
v. Factory tour:
You’ll see where your new Volvo came to life and discover what makes our vehicles so unique. You can also visit our Brand Experience Center – just let us know if you’re interested.
vi. Adventure begins:
In the afternoon, get to know your new Volvo one on one. Turn the key, hit the road and begin a new journey in the birthplace of your new Volvo.
vii. Shipping your Volvo home:
Volvo handles all of the charges to ship your new car to your local U.S. dealer. In fact, shipping from Gothenburg is free of charge. For other drop-off points, you only pay to transport your Volvo to the final leading port.
Another great advantage of our Overseas Delivery Program is the ability to customize your new Volvo with special options. You can build it with select colors, wheels, interiors, inlays and more. You can also add accessories that are only available in Europe. Please note that vehicle options, powertrains, engines and wheels are based on U.S. market specifications.
