Packing Considerations

Follow our guide and recommendations on how to pack your items for safe shipping

Luggage

Pack your belongings in a hard or soft suitcase, but please make sure all the straps are tucked in, taped down, or taken off. For this reason, we do not accept rucksacks and holdalls. It is better to opt for a sturdy suitcase, rather than lightweight, and we do not recommend shipping designer luggage.

Place your labels in a plastic sleeve and attach it securely to the suitcases with cable ties. This will prevent the labels falling off and the bags being lost. Do not lock your suitcase when closing it, as customs and/or the courier may need to verify the contents of your items.

Boxes

We recommend shipping in a double walled box or higher. Within the boxes, we recommend packaging up individual fragile items with some form of cushioning, like bubble wrap. Ideally, spread your heavy items out between boxes rather than packing a whole box of heavy items. Include a spare copy of your label in the box for verification purposes.

Why ship to Japan?

Ship your luggage and boxes, door to door, from just £20

  • Relocation

    Old and new come together in Japan with modern skyscrapers dominating the cityscape and terracotta temples in leafy parks. A strong economy, exceptional public infrastructure, and good leisure opportunities make Japan a firm favourite amongst expats. 

    If you’re moving to Japan we can help. All we need is a short description of the items you’re planning on taking and your reason for moving (for customs purposes). Then you’ll need to pack your items in walled boxes and sturdy suitcases. We’ll do the rest.

  • Students

    Up routing and studying couldn’t be more exciting, however, moving your personal items can be a drag. Here at Sherpr, we are made up of people that have travelled the world studying so we know the pain points of moving items to and from different countries. Let us take care of the shipping whilst you travel hands free.

    Visit our student page for more information on student shipping.

  • Leisure Travel

    Japan is a tale of two halves. Diverse cities  offer up slick cocktail bars in glass clad buildings and regional street food stalls. There are huge shopping districts but plenty of natural sights too. From cherry blossom trees in impeccably manicured parks to the Tottori sand dunes and Nachi Falls – leisure travellers are spoilt for choice. 

    If you’re going to Iceland for leisure travel, don’t mess around with airport queues and excess baggage fees. Send your items with us and we’ll have it waiting at your hotel, ready for your arrival.

  • Business Travel

    Japan is a world leader when it comes to technological advancements. There’s a world-class public transport system with the Shinkansen (bullet train) connecting huge areas of the country. The high tech opportunities are huge in Japan, as are the finance and tourism sectors. English language teachers are usually in demand too. 

    If your company’s sending items to Japan, we can help. Compared to airlines, we let you send more items and at a weight of up to 30kg with no additional fees.

  • Sports Vacation

    If you are travelling to Jordan for pleasure or work then you may want to send your sports equipment ahead of time. With Sherpr, we can provide you with boxes made specifically for bikes and golf clubs, ensuring they travel safely in transit.

  • COVID Care Packages
