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.

My box was collected as booked from Manila, Philippines on Sept 20. It was delivered to Manchester, UK 2 days later on Sept 22. Pretty amazing service. Thank you My Baggage. I will definitely recommend you.

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.
