Why Ship To America?

Reasons My Baggage customers ship to USA:

  • To send personal belongings to study abroad.
  • Move your family abroad easily.
  • To send a care-package to a loved one in the USA.
  • Ship your bags to relocate for business.
  • Send your luggage ahead of enjoying a relaxing holiday.

The journey to the United States is long-haul and, unsurprisingly, there are those who wish to avoid the nightmare of hauling their suitcase or heavy bags on such a long journey. After all, it’s one less thing to worry about. Thankfully, My Baggage’s convenient and affordable shipping services make for the perfect alternative to airline baggage.

Mount Rushmore USA

When you book a bag on your flight, you have to keep in mind your airline’s restrictive, less-than-generous baggage weight allowances when packing up all of your personal belongings. It means you may have to make the sacrifice that no one wants to make; leaving many of your beloved personal belongings behind. Even then, you might still be faced with a nasty surprise at the check-in desk, meaning you’ll have to cough up extortionate excess baggage fees. When travelling long-haul, it’s not an ideal situation.

Thankfully, My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per suitcase at fantastic low rates. You also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags, if you need to. That means you’ll never have to leave any of your beloved possessions behind again.

If you’re a student travelling to the USA to study abroad, or perhaps if you are emigrating with your family; our generous baggage weight allowance and the ability to send as many items as you like with us can come in particularly useful. It allows you to bring more possessions with you than if you were simply relying on a few checked pieces of luggage.

Shipping your excess baggage to the USA with My Baggage also makes that dreaded, tedious 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 every traveller’s worst nightmare!) My Baggage ships your luggage quickly and safely.

5 Tips For Shipping To USA:

  • Do your research on USA quarantine and customs.
  • Find a reputable international removals/shipping service.
  • Don’t stop there, either – obtain more than one quote and compare!
  • Choose a service with transit times that best suit your needs.
  • Package all items securely with plenty of internal cushioning.

Sending Bags Ahead To USA

With My Baggage, you can ship goods to the USA quickly, conveniently and at a low cost. Although we specialise in luggage shipping, we can help you transport all kinds of goods.

Send a Parcel to USA

Perhaps you have a loved one living in the United States, or perhaps you are living in the USA with family residing overseas; why not send a thoughtful care-package with My Baggage? At My Baggage, we don’t just ship personal effects and suitcases to the United States – we can send parcels and gifts, too. Before you place your booking, be sure to do some research into USA customs; particularly when it comes to sending gifts. Make sure you invest in a new sturdy, double-walled (or even triple-walled) cardboard box and cushion items with plenty of internal packaging so as to avoid any damage in transit.

Shipping Sporting Equipment to the USA

If you’re travelling to the USA, you might want to bring sporting equipment along with you. The USA boasts some of the world’s best golf courses, such as Pine Valley and Augusta National. Similarly, there are numerous ski resorts to be found in the US, including Aspen and Lake Tahoe. Instead of renting gear, you can bring your own without any hassle or extortionate airline fees. Please do note, however, if you are shipping your bicycle to the United States with My Baggage, it will need to be dismantled and packaged up in a box so that we can transport it easily and safely. Your local bicycle shop should be more than happy to do this for you for a small fee.

Shipping Musical Instruments to America

Similarly, you may wish to bring your musical instrument with you to the USA. Musical instruments can be particularly tricky to carry with you on your flight, in most cases needing an additional seat booked on your flight. With My Baggage, you can avoid additional costs with your airline by transporting your instrument with us.

Shipping your oversized item to the USA with My Baggage is the easiest way to avoid extortionate oversized/overweight baggage fees from your airline. We help you to avoid having to haul your bulky items from home and through train stations, taxis and airports. Sending oversized items with My Baggage is an efficient and cost-effective way of getting your items to their overseas destination quickly, safely and at fantastic low costs.

Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items and Packaging

My Baggage provides a convenient shipping service to the USA for your personal effects, which means you can send almost anything that you would typically find in your suitcase when travelling.

However, there are certain items that are known as Prohibited Items, which cannot be shipped to the USA on our service. There’s also certain items that are known as Non-Compensation Items, which can be sent on our service, but will not be covered by our compensation cover.

Below we have outlined important information about Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items, and recommendations for Packaging. Please review this carefully before placing your order.

My Baggage Packaging
There are a number of Prohibited Items that cannot be sent using our service. You can view them
here.
Sending a Prohibited Item to the USA will result in your shipment being returned to its original collection address, to which additional shipment fees will apply. In rare instances, depending on what the Prohibited Item is, the shipment may be disposed of.
There are certain items that can be sent on our service, however, they are classed as ‘Non-Compensation’ items. This means that they aren’t covered by our compensation cover. If you choose to send a non-compensation item on our service, this will be done at your own risk. Please also ensure that they are packaged securely and appropriately.
If a Prohibited Item is sent, it also falls under the category of 'Non-Compensation item'. You can view our full list
here.
When sending Personal Effects to the USA with us, we recommend using suitcases, or strong double-walled boxes that will be 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.

Please do not use Plastic Boxes, Bin Bags, or Laundry Bags, as these are not suitable and would be considered as inappropriate packaging.

You should also avoid using fragile or expensive suitcases. Remember, packaging is a non-compensation item, and is not covered under our compensation cover.

You can view our Packaging Guide
here.

USA Customs Information

When shipping personal effects or gifts to the USA, you are legally required to complete and send a customs form with your shipment. Not including a customs form can lead to your shipment being unable to leave its country of origin, potentially causing it to be returned to the sender's address and incurring return shipping fees.

When you use My Baggage, your customs paperwork is automatically provided.

Below we have outlined some important customs regulations when shipping to the USA, and some frequently asked questions. Please review this information carefully before placing an order.

United States of America Customs Information
Shipments to the USA will be subject to US Customs Border Patrol (CBP) checks and require a completed Customs Form.

My Baggage will generate customs forms that you must complete. These forms will be personalised for your shipment based on the information you provided during your order. You can access these forms in the ‘My Orders’ section of our website soon after your order has been paid for.
If your customs paperwork has been completed and submitted correctly, your shipment with My Baggage should clear customs in a timely manner, and arrive on the estimated delivery dates.

Every shipment is unique and will undergo an individual inspection by US Customs. Therefore, clearance times may vary between shipments and are dependent on multiple factors including customs values, reason for shipping, contents of the shipment, etc.
In addition to customs forms, shipments to the USA require some additional documentation, including a copy of the receiver’s passport image page.

To avoid potential issues, it’s recommended that all documentation required by customs are in the name of the receiver, who should be the owner of the shipment. If any documentation is in the sender’s name, and this differs from the receiver’s name, customs may reject the shipment.

When shipping personal effects, please ensure that the names of both the sender and receiver match those of the shipment's owner.

As part of the customs process a CBP3299 form is required, however, we will automatically complete this on your behalf based on the information provided on your customs forms.
For shipments to the USA you are required to declare the value of your items on your customs forms.

When completing your customs forms, it’s important that you do this accurately and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you must describe each item within your shipment. For example, you might declare:

4 x Used Black Men's Cotton T-Shirts
1 x Pair Used Brown Leather Shoes (size 8)
2 x Used Dark Blue Jeans Denim (size Small)
Occasionally customs fees may apply, but this depends on multiple factors, including the accuracy of the values declared on your customs forms. In the event that customs fees are due, our courier partner will reach out to you with a breakdown of the fees. These fees can then be paid online or over the phone through our courier partner, who will be liaising with US Customs regarding your shipment aiming to expedite the clearance process, and get your shipment out for delivery as soon as possible.

Maintaining low customs values may reduce the risk of incurring customs fees.

Sending a Gift to the USA?

If you’re sending a gift to friends or family at a residential address in the USA, your gift can be up to the value of $100 USD, meaning it’ll be free from customs duty or tax - as long as the same person does not receive more than $100 worth of gifts in a single day

Gifts for more than one person may be shipped in the same package, called a “consolidated gift package”. They must be individually wrapped and labelled with each recipient’s name.

If the gifts are shipped from an insular possession (US associated jurisdiction) this amount is increased to $200.

Whilst we can provide general information about customs, we recommend that you make yourself aware of potential customs duties in the USA and be sure to follow any advice provided by customs.
It’s important not to send Medical Equipment or Food items to the USA on our service. Sending such items may result in your shipment being returned to the original collection address, and subsequent return fees being charged.

Please note: US Customs consider Sunglasses, Eye-glasses, and Contact Lenses to be Medical Equipment.

We aim to deliver your items to the USA within the advised delivery estimate. However, on rare occasions items can encounter delays when going through customs clearance. Therefore we don’t recommend sending time-sensitive items.
