Packing Considerations

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

Luggage

When it comes to packing, the sturdier the suitcase the better – this goes for hard or soft cases. You’ll need to tuck in all straps, and if that’s not possible tape them down or remove them.  Next, put your labels in a plastic sleeve and attach this securely to the suitcase with cable ties. Lastly, make sure you leave your suitcase unlocked in case customs or the courier need to verify the contents.  

Unfortunately we don’t accept rucksacks and holdalls and we don’t recommend using designer luggage for shipping.

Boxes

For shipping boxes, choose a double walled box or higher and wrap fragile items individually, then cushion them with bubble wrap or something similar. If you can, spread your heavier items between boxes and include a copy of your label in the box. This helps with verification.

Why ship to the UK?

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

  • Relocation

    The UK is a cultural heavyweight with an esteemed collection of museums, sporting venues, and historic sites. Away from the bustling city centres, quaint old English pubs are dotted around the countryside and rugged clifftop paths hug the coastline. It’s a country known for its multicultural communities, excellent healthcare system, and educational institutions. 

    Planning on relocating here? All we need from you 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

    With some of the best educational institutions in the world, the UK has massive appeal for international students. Universities like Oxford and Cambridge lead the way with pioneering research. 

    Don’t let international shipping take the shine off studying in the UK. Our team can take that off your hands with our affordable door-to-door student shipping service. Check out our student page for more information.

    We can make your trip to the UK a breeze. 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
