Second Positive Experience - Recommend this Service

Second time that I have used the My Baggage service. All was smooth and on time, and the online support on a question on labels was responded to promptly and clearly. Price-wise very reasonable given the door-to-door service (when compared to excess baggage charges on flights). I would recommend without hesitation.

Super My Baggage

I have been using My Baggage for almost 3 years since my daughter went to Uni. Transporting her luggage from NI to Newcastle is much cheaper, easier and generally a lot less hassle than taking it on the plane. Tracking is super easy and even when or if you make a mistake in your booking there is a real life person to speak to who can sort it out for you 😊

Great service

I sent a large suitcase from Vancouver, Canada to a small town in upstate New York. The paperwork was straightforward. Online tracking was simple and detailed. And most importantly, they picked up my bag when they said they would—and delivered it when they said they would.

Exceeded expectations

I just used MyBaggage to ship an heirloom package of items from Canada to my daughter in Ireland. I followed my package progress online and could not believe how fast it moved from the pickup at my house in Alberta. In less than a day it had moved thru Saskatchewan and Manitoba and down to Cincinnati in the USA. From there it moved to the UK, then to Ireland, thru all the customs, and my daughter received it in 3 1/2 days. I'm amazed and more than happy, they provided online email support to every question promptly and their system allowed me to provide custom details and print forms to apply to the package. I love the fantastic service they provided which exceeded my expectations.
