There is a trio of methods to choose from when you need to send bags worldwide from the UK. The most effective baggage shipping option for you can be determined by four key factors – load size, budget, location and urgency. The three delivery options are air freight, sea freight and road freight

Send Excess Baggage via Road Freight

If you are sending unaccompanied luggage to a European destination you can do so via road freight. We operate regular deliveries to over 74 European hubs and we have independent partners in over 30 EU countries. Road Freight is a reliable and flexible way to send excess baggage when on a budget.

Use Sea Freight to Ship Unaccompanied Baggage

Shipping excess baggage is the most cost effective way to send extra luggage overseas from the United Kingdom, however it is the slowest of the freight methods and so plenty of time for delivery must be allowed. Unaccompanied luggage shipping enables you to send goods to many worldwide destinations with ease and for a reasonable fee.
