When you book a bag on your flight, you have to keep in mind the airline's restrictive baggage weight allowances when packing up all of your personal belongings. It could mean that you may have to make the sacrifice that no student wants to make; leaving some of your beloved 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 anyway. And, when you're getting by on a student budget, it's certainly not ideal.

Thankfully, My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per box or suitcase at fantastic low rates. You'll also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags, if you need to. With My Baggage, you won't have to worry about leaving anything behind as you embark on your international adventure.

What Can I Send?

With My Baggage, you can transport everything you need for university life. We're experts at shipping personal effects all over the world, so you can safely transport all of your clothing and worldly possessions with us. However, for security and customs reasons, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried on our services.

As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:

  • Aerosols
  • Animal Products
  • Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
  • Dangerous Goods
  • Hazardous Goods
  • Liquids
  • Medicines
  • Passports or other confidential personal documentation
  • Perishable Foods
  • Plants

It is important to note that there are also a number of items that can be carried on our services, however, they would be sent at your own risk as they are not covered under our compensation cover. If you choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure that they are packaged appropriately. To find out more about exactly what you can and cannot send with My Baggage, take a look at our list of prohibited and non-compensation items.

When sending your belongings with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong, double-walled cardboard boxes to package your items so as they are suitable for transit. We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it's always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable.

If you are sending any fragile or delicate items, we recommend using plenty of internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers. You can read through our complete packaging guide to find out more.

Customs Information

When shipping within the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and are therefore do not require customs documentation and are not subject to import tax or duty. If, however, you're sending to or from a country outside of the EU, such as Canada or the USA, you are then legally required to complete customs documentation for your shipment.

When sending outside of the EU, if your shipment does not have customs documentation attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documentation for you to complete, print, sign and attach to your shipment.

Amazing services !

Amazing services ! I got 3 luggage’s sent from the UK to a tiny village in France and everything went super smoothly. The customer support is amazing, they answered my phone call in less than a minute after 9pm and manage to take care of all my questions and changes over the phone. I even received my luggage’s 1 to 2 days earlier than expected. And the costs ended up being half what their competitors were offering me for the exact same delivery. Overall this was an amazing experience, it was easy, simple and trustworthy.

I used this as I was relocating and have more than I could check in and manage alone at the airport. My bags were delivered to my address in the US 3 days after collection in the UK with no hassle and was manifested by DHL. So, I recommend it.

Excellent service

Excellent service. Have used my baggage a few times now - with children at Uni and relocating between NI to England . This time I had 3 boxes. Always easy to book, flexible, including making amendments. Collection and delivery dates always been fulfilled. If you pay the little extra for tracking you get regular updates.
