Why ship to Holland?

Ship your luggage and boxes, door to door

  • Relocation

    The Netherlands attracts streams of expats and international students each year. The country seems to have succeeded in balancing a high quality of life with generous working packages. There are vibrant city centres where cafe culture thrives and cobbled bike trails that criss-cross around canals. 

    If you’re planning on moving to The Netherlands, we can help. All we need 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

    The Netherlands is a safe pair of hands when it comes to education. The public transport system is fast and reliable, there’s a low crime rate, and the learning facilities are world-class. That’s an attractive proposition to international students. Plus the high-ranking universities have plenty of courses taught in English. 

    Need help moving your things to the Netherlands to study? We can help you ship your items. Check out our student page for more information on our affordable door-to-door student shipping service.

  • Leisure Travel

    On average, the Dutch tend to have shorter working weeks than other European countries. Which means there’s ample time for leisure pursuits. Head to Rotterdam to experience the bustling nightlife scene or opt for Utrecht if you’re after leafy walks and art galleries. Zandvoort is where the Dutch go on holiday to walk amongst sandy dunes and spot wildlife in vast nature reserves.

    If you’re going to the Netherlands for leisure travel, don’t mess around with airport queues and excess baggage fees. Send your items with us and we’ll have them waiting at your hotel, ready for your arrival. 

  • Business Travel

    There are business incentives for companies looking to move here, such as a percentage of your earnings remaining tax-free. Other perks include a higher than average salary and more days off. 

    If your company’s sending items to The Netherlands, we can help. Compared to airlines, we let you send more items and at a weight of up to 30kg with no additional fees.

  • Sports Vacation

    If you are travelling to the Netherlands 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.

Packing Considerations

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

Luggage Shipping | Sherpr


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.

Box Shipping | Sherpr


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.
