Luggage Shipping To Singapore
Travelling to or from Singapore? Uni Baggage’s convenient and affordable luggage shipping services make transporting your luggage there and back an easy process.
In the past, shipping unaccompanied baggage overseas used to provide to be a complicated process, not to mention an expensive one. Thankfully, Uni Baggage offers a cost-effective shipping solution, complete with online tracking and customer support.
Singapore is an island country located in southeast Asia, off southern Malaysia. Singapore is a hugely popular destination with a tropical climate and multicultural population. It is also listed among the top ten safest countries to live in, with extremely low crime rates.
English is one of the four official languages of Singapore, along with Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. As such, those who are uprooting their life to Singapore may find it easier to fit in.
Transporting Your Luggage: Airline Baggage vs Traditional Removals
One of the seemingly most convenient ways to transport your luggage overseas is to, of course, carry your baggage on your flight. However, in doing so, you need to keep in mind your airline’s often restrictive baggage weight allowance. It could mean that you might have to make the sacrifice that no one wants to make, which is leaving some of your beloved personal belongings behind. And even then, you might still be slapped with extortionate excess baggage charges at the check-in desk. It’s certainly not ideal.
If you’re uprooting your life to Singapore, you might consider hiring a traditional international removals company to transport your belongings. In theory, it’s an ideal choice. Traditional international removals companies are excellent for shipping large, bulky items such as sofas, beds and even your car. However, if you’re on a strict budget, and a tight timescale, you might find the cost and transit times don’t align with your needs.

Singapore Customs Information
When shipping personal effects to Singapore, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. If your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. Uni baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs paperwork for you to complete and attach to 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, it should be noted that customs processes and allowances are different in each and every country, and because Uni Baggage has no control over any decisions made by any customs authority, we do advise doing your own personal research into Singapore customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Singapore.
Please note: shipments entering Malaysia declared over the value of £80 will likely undergo further inspection by customs, resulting in additional time to clear and potentially incurring duty and taxes. We advise that these shipments should have a lesser value.
Prohibited and Non-Compensation Items
With Uni Baggage, you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase in your shipment with us. However, for security and customs purposes, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried on any service.
As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
- Animal Products
- Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
- Dangerous Goods
- Hazardous Goods
- Passports or other confidential personal documentation
- Perishable Foods
When sending to Singapore, the following items are also prohibited:
- Precious Metals and Stones
When placing your booking with us, please do keep in mind that there are specific items which can be carried on our services, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and should be sent at your own risk. If you choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure they are packaged securely and appropriately.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to Singapore.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Singapore with Uni Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong boxes to package your items so they are suitable for transit.
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.
If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.
