Finland is a Northern European nation which borders Sweden, Norway in the north, and Russia. On the south side of Finland is Estonia. Finnish and Swedish are the the two official languages of the country, which boasts a population of 5.5 million people.
Helsinki is the capital and largest city in Finland, which receives visitors all year round, but particularly around Christmas time. Jyvaskyla and Tampere are also popular destinations.
If you’re flying to Finland, traditionally it makes sense to carry your baggage with you 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 personal belongings behind. And even then, you might still be slapped with excess baggage charges at the check-in desk.
When it comes to relocating, hiring a traditional international removals company to transport your belongings overseas makes sense. Generally speaking, they are excellent for shipping large, bulky items such as sofas, beds and even your car. However, if you happen to find yourself on a strict budget and a tight timescale for your big move, you might find that the cost and transit times don’t exactly align with your needs. After all, some international removals can take up to two months to arrive, depending on the route.

Send More Than Suitcases to Finland
Send Your Bike
Maybe you’re a keen cyclist that’s wanting to explore Finland by bike or you could simply be looking for a way to get from A to B during your time in Finland. Why not ship your own bike to Finland with My Baggage? Finland is home to some stunning spots and having your bike here means you can head out and do some sightseeing on your bike, without spending a penny.
When shipping your bike to Finland with My Baggage, you will need to dismantle it before shipment and place it in a strong, double or triple walled cardboard box. If you’re not sure how to dismantle your bike, you could simply watch an online video that explains how to do it. However, many go for the easier and much safer option of heading to a bike shop and paying a small fee to get your bike dismantled by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing.
Ship A Care Package to Finland
If you have a loved one in Finland and you want to show them that you’re thinking of them, you can send them a care package. This care package could be a box with some of the receivers favourite items inside. You can ship this care package to Finland with My Baggage at an affordable price. Although, when sending a care package, please do make yourself aware of our prohibited items list before purchasing things to be included in the care package, as there are some items that cannot be shipped on our service.
Get Your Sports Equipment to Finland
My Baggage can also ship a range of sporting equipment to Finland, meaning you can continue playing your favourite sport, with your own equipment when in Finland. As most sporting equipment can be expensive, we recommend packing it well internally and externally. Using bubble wrap and newspapers inside can cushion the sports equipment, reducing the likelihood of breakage. If you any questions regarding shipping your sports equipment on our service, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Finland Customs Information
When shipping from the UK to Finland or anywhere else in the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty. If, however, you’re sending to Finland from a country outside of the EU, such as the USA or Australia, you are then legally required to complete and attach a customs invoice to your shipment.
Generally, My 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 are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own personal research into Finland customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Finland. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Finland and be sure to follow any and all advise provided by customs directly.
Prohibited and Non-Compensation Items
At My Baggage, we’re experts at shipping personal effects all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase on our services. However, due to security and customs, there are items which are prohibited and cannot be carried on any service, as is standard with most shipping companies.
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 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 Finland.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Finland with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong cardboard 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.
