Fast delivery, easy to use
I used your service to send a bag from the south of Spain to a remote island in Scotland, which is not the most common route.
I had a doubt about the type of bag that I could send, so I contacted customer service via chat and Christopher was very kind to solve it.
After that, I sent my bag and it got to its destination within a week, which is faster than expected. Tracking is easy through the links they provide and very helpful.
The items and the bag are all in a perfect state.

I recommend using Send My bag over travelling with your luggage, as there are less size restrictions, they take good care of your belongings and they collect and send from remote locations.

Important Laos Customs Information

General Customs Information

Most of Send My Bag's shipments are not stopped by customs. This is because we mostly send personal effects, for which many countries offer a duty-free allowance. Personal effects are defined as used items that have been owned by the sender for at least six months.

If your bag is stopped by customs and brand new or commercial items are found, you may have to pay customs duties and taxes. If you intend to send brand new items, such as gifts, please do check with Lao customs beforehand, so you are aware of any customs duties you may have to pay. Follow their advice and attach all documentation asked of you.

We suggest that all travellers take 5 minutes to see how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed by Lao customs, as this may be different to customs processes in other countries.

Please read our customs information page for more information.

If you are only sending personal effects, it is important that you make this clear to customs officials. To do so, you should complete a brief non-generic packing list online, with entries to be made as follows: "2 x Pairs Leather Shoes, 3 x Cotton T-shirt, 4 x Cotton Blouse", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
