Are you moving abroad? Or considering moving abroad to study or work? Already carrying a lot of luggage? Use our efficient personal effects shipping services to deliver all of your unaccompanied baggage to its intended location anywhere in the world without any hassle.

Travelers frequently ship their belongings in advance to a place they will be visiting. As an alternative, a package could be sent to someone who is already residing abroad.

What is personal effects cargo?

The term "personal effects" refers to shipments that include often-used goods, presents, jewelry, clothing, toiletries, or any other form of personally owned shipping prepared for relocation or transferring to another nation.

6 personal effects shipping guidelines

  1. You must complete a packing list, which is a list of the items in your shipment if you are shipping personal belongings outside of the EU. Please fill out this form without using generic terms like "Used Clothing"; instead, put things like "4 x Woollen Jumper, 2 x Denim Jeans," etc.
  2. When shipping fragile objects, bundle them tightly using padding made of clothing.
  3. Please be aware that fragile products are not covered by Send My Bag's free cover.
  4. Make sure you don't bring any forbidden items, including alcohol or aerosols, in your carry-on luggage. See our FAQs for more information.
  5. Pick a durable suitcase, double-walled box, or holdall as the proper container for your shipment, and make these containers as strong as you can. Attach all your labels well.
  6. You should refer to your country's destination page for specific information about what you may and cannot send there because customs procedures differ by country.
