Help! I need advices how to move my home from Vaxjo to Stockholm

Hello guys,
Hope you have a great holiday so far.

I just finish my study in Vaxjo and I plan to continue my study in Stockholm. Then I need to move my things from Vaxjo to Stockholm.

What I plan to move:
1. One 49 inch TV with box
2. One 34 inch 21:9 monitor
3. Two desktops
4. One gaming chair
5. One bicycle
6. Five suitcases

I felt headache when searching how to move these things from Vaxjo to Stockholm. My budget is under 5000kr. The methods I thought:
1. Rent a van. Drive it from Stockholm to Vaxjo, and go back. After checking the price in OKQ8, I need to pay 7 kr/km after 120 km... Total distance is more than 900 km...
2. Find a home moving company? Do you have any suggestion about it? I guess it is paid by hour and I need to pay the time when they are returning from Stockholm to Vaxjo?
3. Go contact with Postnord, DHL, or UPS? To hire a truck to move everything? Is this possible to do? How much will it cost?
4. Rent a SUV from Eurocar in Vaxjo, return the car in Stockholm. Leave the chair and bicycle in Vaxjo.

Do you have any other ideas? Thanks for help.

PeGe minibus have student discount and have big vehicles you can rent. (Maaybe this discount was only for EHVS-member though, I have forgot)

I guess an option could be to use busgods (i think they are the cheapest per liter/kg)

Also consider to sell stuff on campus. Do you really need the gamingchair? Could you sell it and buy a new one when you arrive to stockholm. This item feels in particular very bulky. If you dont take it to stockholm it feels like everything else could fit in a volvo v70/90 or similar. Also comsidee to get rid of other bulky stuff you havent mentioned.

When you go to stockholm you could use swebus since with them you are able to take more luggage compared with train (need to pay a bit extra though)

Check out Hertz.se You can pickup a car/transporter at one location and leave it at destination. Best thing is to call them, website can be messy.

*I use them all the time, but calling in is the best options.

Cirkle K has vans for rent that you can pick up at one location and return at Another. So does Hertz. Probably Avis as well. Check them out!

EDIT: As it has been pointed out by other members, Circle K no longer provides this service.

Ni hao!

You can rent a car in växjö and leave it in Stockholm no need to go back and forth.
I think OKQ8 offer this. Why go with the empty car?

Avoid the postnord. Schenker have quite good prices if you want to send by service.
Maybee also "bussgods" can be an option.

Rent a car with a towing hitch and a trailer. Both oneway from Växjö to Stockholm. I have done the same from Kiruna to Sundsvall, so it shouldn't be a problem.
That depends on if you are comfortable with driving with a trailer that is.

Else still get a large estate car with a towing hitch and buy a cheap bikerack (https://www.biltema.se/fritid/cyklar/cykeltillbehor/cykelhall...) and strap the bike on it. Then if you really put your tetris skills to the test I'm sure that you can fit the rest in the car.
Fold the rear seats and cram stuff as best as you can even in the passenger front seat if you driving alone.

If you can rent a car with a towbar, then I'm sure you can also rent a trailer that you can return in Stockholm.

Simply put, if you can rent a car with a towbar you can always get a bike rack and transport your bike that way and fit the rest inside the car if you don't have lots of stuff/furniture. So you can bring your bike even if you don't rent a trailer.

You might not be able to book a car with a tow bar or a roof box (if that's the way you want to fit more stuff) for that matter directly on the rental services websites, but you often can if you call them up. Hertz, Europcar etc should offer that service. You can always rent a minibus too if you can manage to fit your stuff inside of a minibus and that should be cheaper than renting a van. You just need to call them up if you need extras such as a tow bar or a roof box. Every rental pickup station might not have them, but you should be able to find a place. You should have no trouble to make it far under your budget here.

You would need to return it to the same station.

PeGe minibus has a great price. However, it could require return the car in Vaxjo too...

In bussgods, I should use Helpall? They will pick up all my things from my home? And send it to my room in Stockholm?

Yes, you are right. I could leave some bulky stuff to sell on campus.

Do you know any flyttfirma company? It could be much expensive if I call them?

Since I go from Stockholm to Vaxjo for moving my stuff... However, it could be a bit tired to drive such a long time. I will consider taking the train and return with the rented car. Thanks for advice.

About rental cars, I just found out about Hertz Freerider where you help them by moving a car from one city to another, and you don't pay for the car you use. Take a look there first, as this would free up some of your budget to get a trailer or move some stuff by courier.

Driving with a trailer is quite easy as it just follow after the car, the main thing one have to consider is that as the car will have larger turning ratio, so one have to take out the turns more.
Another thing to consider is that the trailer will push on the car when one breaks, so one have to start breaking earlier then normally.
The hard part is going in reverse with it as it always go in the opposite direction as one turns.

No. What?

You just call them and explain your situation, and they can give you a price estimate. It will be what it is, not more expensive or cheaper.

I dont think you need a moving firm. Without the chair your stuff should fit in a big car, no problems. Including the chair just use a small van or so.

You can read more here https://www.hertz.se/rentacar/transportfordon/hyra-flyttbil just translate from swedish using google (or call them). In order to book for "one way travel" (envägshyra) you actually have to call them as described here https://www.hertz.se/rentacar/transportfordon/envagshyra

0771-211 212 Tell them how large a car you need and where and to you are driving from and you can get an exact price. It should be way below 5000!

Hi, "helpall" means a full EUR-pallet (standard pallet) i don't think they offer pickup service.
as several already pointed out the best would be to rent one way, or if you are lucky get a car that some company wants returned from Växjö to Stockholm, for example Hertz freerider.
