Why ship to France?
Send luggage to France and boxes, door to door
A European mainstay when it comes to leisure travel, this pocket rocket country punches well above its weight.

In Paris, fashion and food combine to create a chic cultural hotspot.
Holidaying in France? 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.
If you are travelling to France for a holiday you will need to provide a copy of your passport.
The standard working week is perhaps a little shorter here than most are used to. There’s a firm emphasis on spending time with family and friends, with long lunches and universal healthcare seen as big benefits to working in France. Plus the country borders Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland – ideal for international business travel.
We can help companies send items abroad. Compared to airlines, we let you send more items and at a weight of up to 30kg with no additional fees.
If you are travelling to France 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.

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