Why ship to Austria?
Ship your luggage and boxes, door to door
Part of Austria’s appeal is its diverse leisure opportunities. Make for Linz and Salzburg if architecture and the arts are your thing. Or visit iconic Vienna for classical music and world-class restaurants. Escaping to the countryside, expats can expect twisting hiking trails snaking through snowy valleys and glacial lakes to canoe on.
With so much to see and do in Austria, 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.
Austria borders eight other countries and is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. People who work here have access to exceptional healthcare – ranked in the top ten globally – and affordable transportation and housing.
If your company’s sending items to new Austria, we can help. Compared to airlines, we let you send more items and at a weight of up to 30kg with no additional fees.

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 before you send luggage 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.
