Great experience!
I moved from the US to Italy. The booking process was easy and I had all of the labels I needed to put inside and outside of my suitcases. I selected a time frame for when I wanted my bags to be picked up and this is the first service that actually showed up in the given time frame. I was really please. It was easy to track my order and Send My Bag also sent emails keeping me up to date with where my bags were in the process. I will definitely use the service again when the time comes to move back to the States.

Important Virgin Islands, British Customs Information

General Customs Information

Personal effects are defined as items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least six months. Shipments containing only personal effects are unlikely to incur any customs duties or taxes as most countries offer generous duty-free allowances for personal effects.

To indicate to customs officials that you are only sending personal effects, it is essential that you complete a packing list online, that should be written as follows: "2 x Cotton T-shirt, 3 x Sweatshirt, 5 x Pairs of Socks", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

If your shipment is found to contain brand new or commercial items, you may have to pay taxes and duties to allow your shipment to clear customs. This is something you should bear this in mind if sending brand new items, such as gifts, to the British Virgin Islands. Before you book your collection, you should look into any customs duties you might have to pay, take any advice given by British Virgin Islands customs, and attach any documentation asked of you. 

Because customs processes and allowances are different depending on your destination country, we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed according to your destination's customs regulations.

You can find out more on our customs information page.
