Excellent customer service

I am a repeat customer of My Baggage, and I keep coming back because of the company's excellent customer service. I have had a few hiccoughs/misunderstandings with ParcelForce (a subcontractor of My Baggage), but as soon as I signaled them to My Baggage, a staff member acted quickly and efficiently to sort out the problem, Their staff have excellent communication skills, and I feel they really are concerned with customer satisfaction.

Excellent Services

This is my first time using My Baggage and I'm delighted with the services. Fast and reasonable quotation, baggage was picked up on time, I was kept informed at each stage and delivered securely and quickly as promised. My Baggage is going to be my shipping company from here on now and I highly recommend it to others.

Great experience but a bit expensive!

Really great experience sending three large bags from Madrid back to the United States. Would 100% use again even though it was a bit expensive - worth it in terms of speed and reliability.
