“We moved over 10+ boxes seamlessly from London to New York with Sherpr. The staff were super helpful throughout the whole process and we cannot thank them enough for the patience they gave us before and after we had relocated.”Adrian, London
Follow our guide and recommendations on how to pack your items for safe excess baggage 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.
