A painful reminder

While I'm grateful I found the service and grateful for whatever help they actually provided, the reality is that DHL did all the actual work and that the only reason I needed to use a service like My Baggage was because Thai Airways wanted to charge me $1500 dollars to add a second suitecase to my flight. In the end it cost me $500 dollars to ship my suitcase to a new location plus the time I lost organizing my belongings so that I would have what I needed until my second suitecase arrived plus the time I spent finding the service and filling out documents, etc. So while I am relatively grateful, it's a painful reminder of a bad experience overall. Super stressful. I hope you'll never need to use their service.

Mostly everything went well

Everything went well. The only issue was that DHL didn't pick up the bags when we understood they were going to. It was very difficult to contact them. However when My Baggage was contacted they got onto it right away. Relieved my stress for sure.

Everything went as planned

Everything went as planned. I am happy that my daughter received her parcels at the University of Bath as planned before she arrives. The cost of this services was very affordable and I will use them again.

Grateful

This ended up being a blessing in disguise for our travel. We had all 3 of our flights rescheduled the day of international travel, had we not shipped our bags, we would be embarking on a 30 day journey with no luggage. The only comment non positive was the inability to definitely pinpoint the time of pickup.

Excellent service

After a Google search I came across My Baggage. The booking process was simple but took a bit of effort to complete the custom form. Option to select pick up & drop off dates. Arrived a day before the expected date. Seemed a bit expensive but overall worth it.
