How does it work?

Shipping A Parcel or Luggage Abroad

There may be many reasons why you find the need to ship luggage or a parcel to international destinations, from those that are sending items to friends and family living in other countries, to those that are studying abroad in college or university across the world, even people moving house or country! Uni Baggage offers cheap luggage shipping worldwide with over 1,000 international routes. Uni Baggage can also send to and from colleges and Universities across Europe and USA. If you need to ship your personal effects Uni Baggage is your No.1 choice.

Send Baggage Abroad

For those that want to avoid the nightmare of hauling your suitcase or bags from your home and through train stations, taxis and airports, our baggage service can come as more than welcome news. It’s the best alternative to airline baggage.

Whilst you may have been left at check-in with the option of paying extortionate excess baggage fees, or leaving many of your personal belongings behind, you can ship a massive 30kg / 66Ibs per suitcase with Uni Baggage at great rates. You can pay extra for even heavier bags if you need to.

We also make sure that the eager wait for the appearance of your suitcase on the conveyor belt is a thing of the past (not to mention the possibility of your suitcase not appearing at all, which is every traveller’s worst nightmare!).

Airline Baggage Alternative

Whether you’re off to study abroad at a college or university on the other side of the world, moving abroad to start a new life with your family, or have simply invested in one too many souvenirs and mementos from your travels; sending bags separately can be much more convenient, and much more affordable than paying your airline’s excess baggage fees.

In fact, Uni Baggage is the perfect, welcomed alternative to airline baggage. Say goodbye to the nightmare of hauling your suitcase or bags from your home and through train stations, taxis and airports; our baggage shipping service can save you from all of the hassle and stress.

What’s more, when you book a bag on your flight, you have to keep in mind your airline’s restrictive baggage weight allowances when packing up all of your personal belongings. It means you may be left with two options, either of which are ideal; paying the extortionate excess baggage fees at the check-in desk, or leaving many of your beloved personal belongings behind. When travelling for any reason, especially long-haul, it’s not ideal.

Thankfully, Uni Baggage allows you to ship a generous 30kg/66lbs per suitcase at fantastic low rates. You also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags, if you need to. With Uni Baggage, you’ll never have to worry about leaving any of your possessions behind.

Shipping your excess baggage with Uni Baggage also makes that eager wait for the appearance of your suitcase at the luggage carousel in the airport a thing of the past. (Not to mention the possibility of your suitcase not appearing at all, which is without a doubt every traveller’s worst nightmare!) Uni Baggage ships your baggage overseas quickly and safely.

What Can I Send?

Uni Baggage gives you the freedom to ship your personal belongings all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase. However, for security and customs reasons, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried, as is standard with most, if not all, shipping companies.

As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:

Aerosols
Animal Products
Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
Dangerous Goods
Hazardous Goods
Liquids
Medicines
Passports or other confidential personal documentation
Perishable Foods
Plants

It is also important to be aware that there are a number of items that can be carried on our services, however, they are not covered under our compensation cover and would be sent at your own risk. If you choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure they are packaged appropriately, with plenty of internal packaging to cushion any fragile items.

Uni Baggage also allows you to ship oversized items that may be otherwise difficult or expensive to transport, such as musical instruments, bicycles and sporting equipment. Shipping your oversized item with Uni Baggage is the easiest way to avoid oversized baggage fees applied by your airline, not to mention having to travel with bulky items in tow.

What type of packaging can be used?

When transporting your personal belongings with Uni Baggage, we recommend using strong suitcases or strong, double-walled cardboard boxes to package your items, so as they are suitable for transit. We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as they are not covered. We advise using bubble wrap or newspapers for any internal packaging.

You can read through our complete packaging guide to find out more.

Customs Information

When shipping within the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty, and do not require declaration. However, when shipping outside of the EU, you are legally required to adhere to customs and declare your shipment.

Generally, Uni Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances differ around the world, and because Uni Baggage has no direct link or association with any customs authority; we do advise taking some time to do your own personal research into your destination country’s customs regulations before booking your shipment. It is important to make yourself aware of any potential customs duties, and be sure to follow any and all advice that may be provided by customs directly.

Uni Baggage makes this process easy. When you book with us, we will provide you with the appropriate customs documentation for you to appropriately complete, print, sign and attach to your shipment. If you have any questions along the way, we’ll do our best to help.
