When you’re moving into the next stage of your education, things can start to get stressful; you’re thinking about the new place you’re going to be in and the new people you’ll be meeting, the last thing that’s on your mind is wrestling with your airline's student baggage allowance. Let us take care of it for you and move everything from home to halls the easy way.
There can be high costs associated with taking all your baggage to uni on flights, whether they’re domestic or international, and even taking your boxes and bags in cars or on the train for a short distance can be hassle that you just don’t need. Send My Bag™ provides excellent value shipping that will deliver your student necessities door to door in next to no time. All you need to do is empty your room into sturdy bags or reinforced cardboard boxes, ensuring there’s nothing breakable inside them, book your delivery online at Send My Bag™ using the quick quote tool for an estimation on delivery dates and prices, and your bags and boxes will be collected and waiting for you at your student digs.
Students taking Gap Years are heading abroad for extended periods of time more and more frequently. Many will quickly come to discover the issues and high costs associated with taking luggage abroad with them. Whether it’s simply due to a heavy backpack on a budget airline to Thailand, or a couple of large suitcases travelling over the pond with you to the US for a year studying abroad, you are constantly being slammed with excess baggage fees.
Your best option might be to use our student shipping service to send your bags on ahead, meaning that everything will be where you need it when you need it, without having to break the bank to get it there. Whether you want to send an extra bag packed with uni stuff over to Italy, Spain or somewhere else within the EU for an Erasmus year, or as far afield as Australia where you’ll be starting off your Gap Year tour, nothing is too big a problem for Send My Bag™. And not only will you be saving on any extra or extortionate fees from the airline by student shipping, you’ll also save on the hassle of carting heavy bags around the airport, to and from your accommodation, and even save time by not having to wait at check in to drop your baggage off or at the luggage carousel at the other end to pick it up all over again.
With our handy quick quote tool, you’ll be able to estimate the amount that student shipping will cost you to send your bags wherever you need them, even if you think it’s an especially far flung destination. All you need to do is select your student shipping pick up date with our couriers online and ensure that you’ve packed your bags properly with nothing that’s restricted in the country you’ll be travelling. With everything appropriately labelled, we’ll do the rest. It couldn’t be simpler.
