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.

Luggage transfer

The only way to describe my baggage is BRILLIANT. I would recommend this company as they collected and delivered on the dates that I supplied. I could track my delivery down to a 1hour delivery slot. It is the first time that I have had my luggage taken by currier and would not hesitate to use this company again.

Have used MyBaggage twice and will continue to use them in the future. The customer service team are super helpful and I had two bags collected from very remote locations and both processes ran smoothly. The bags are fully tracked and both arrived securely and signed for. Five stars!

A painful reminder

While I'm grateful I found the service and grateful for whatever help they actually provided, the reality is that DHL did all the actual work and that the only reason I needed to use a service like My Baggage was because Thai Airways wanted to charge me $1500 dollars to add a second suitecase to my flight. In the end it cost me $500 dollars to ship my suitcase to a new location plus the time I lost organizing my belongings so that I would have what I needed until my second suitecase arrived plus the time I spent finding the service and filling out documents, etc. So while I am relatively grateful, it's a painful reminder of a bad experience overall. Super stressful. I hope you'll never need to use their service.

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.
