I ended up backing out of doing this due to the risks I was told about by the bike courier of having to pay Swedish VAT on the bike even though it was mine. Was looking like it was gonna end up upwards of £750+ to send the bike that way - unless you risk putting a lower replacement value on the bike (mine was £2500 bike) but then you risk either insurance only covering the declared value (if you insure it) or the customs believing you have under declared and then holding it and you getting fines/admin shit to pay on top of any import duties!
That was where i got to - but others seem to have no issue - like @5115_Pete earlier in this thread- so who knows. Ultimately it feels like its all about taking the risk and being prepared to potentially get whacked with some tax/duties/fees
