Why ship to the Canary Islands?
Ship your luggage and boxes, door to door
Leisure travel is big business for the Canaries and it’s not hard to see why. The volcanic, black sand beaches attract windsurfers and scuba divers whilst the UNESCO National Parks and Biosphere Reserves appeal to nature enthusiasts and hikers. With Europe’s highest mountain and seas kept warm by volcanic lava – there’s plenty of dramatic landscapes to entertain.

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