Why Ship To France?

Reasons why My Baggage customers ship to France:

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

When travelling anywhere in the world, there’s nothing better than having one less thing to worry about. My Baggage’s convenient and affordable luggage shipping services allow you to avoid the nightmare of hauling your suitcase or heavy bags on your journey, even long-haul. As such, our services make for the perfect alternative to airline baggage.

Paris, France

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. Particularly when travelling long-haul, it’s not ideal.

Thankfully, My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 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.

Whether you’re a student travelling to France to study abroad, or perhaps you’re emigrating to France 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 relying on a few checked pieces of luggage.

Shipping your excess baggage to France 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.

  • Choose a service with transit times that best suit your needs.

Shipping Oversized Items To France

Throughout the winter months, France is a haven for skiing and winter sports with a number of world-renowned resorts tucked away in the Alps. My Baggage can help you to easily transport your oversized items to France, without having to worry about renting equipment when you get there, or having to pay oversized baggage fees on your flight.

Shipping your oversized item to France with My Baggage is the easiest way to avoid extortionate/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.

Most common oversized items sent to France:

Note: if you are shipping your bicycle to France 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.

Other Ways Of Shipping To France

Of course, shipping your belongings via My Baggage isn’t the only way to get all of your excess baggage to France. If you need to transport your things to France, you should make yourself aware of the numerous options available; after all, some options will suit your personal needs better than others. Here are just a few alternative options:

International Removals

If you are relocating to France permanently, or if you are considering accepting a lengthy business contract there, you might consider transporting everything with an international removals company. This means you can transport all of your worldly belongings – including bulkier items such as furniture – in one single go, and they can meet you there!

Sea Freight

If you specifically need to send a number of larger items to France – perhaps a sofa, a fridge or even your car – you might want to consider sea freight, in which your items are shipped via cargo ships in shipping containers. Although a relatively inexpensive option, it is important to note that shipping your possessions by sea freight can be an exceptionally slow voyage, meaning you could be without your belongings for quite some time. Depending on the route of the shipment, you could be waiting for up to two months for your things to arrive with you in France. You also need to consider the transportation of your items to and from ports, both departing and on arrival in France.

Air Freight

Air freight also allows you to send exceptionally large, bulky items to France that may be otherwise difficult to transport to such a destination. Although a fast option of transporting your belongings; air freight tends to be a more expensive option, as it is charged by weight and volume. You also need to consider the transportation to and from airports.

Send A Parcel To France

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

Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items and Packaging

My Baggage provides a convenient shipping service to France 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 France 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 France 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 France 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.

French Customs Information

When shipping personal effects or gifts to France, 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 France, and some frequently asked questions. Please review this information carefully before placing an order.

French Customs
Shipments to France will be subject to customs 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 shipment to France originates from inside the European Union (EU), no customs checks or forms are required.
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 French 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 France 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.

Additional forms may also be required, such as:

• Modele de procuration simplifie
• Attestation Sur L'Honneur

Should these forms be needed, the courier will reach out to you directly. You will then need to complete the necessary form and return it to the courier.
For shipments to France 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 French Customs regarding your shipment aiming to expedite the clearance process, and get your shipment out for delivery as soon as possible.

When sending gifts to France, if the value does not exceed €45, this can be sent without incurring customs fees. Generally, low-value shipments of personal effects are exempt from fees.

Whilst we can provide general information about customs, we recommend that you make yourself aware of potential customs duties in France and be sure to follow any advice provided by customs.
We aim to deliver your items to France 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.
