Since our roots in Northern Ireland as a student shipping service, Send My Bag has grown to the no.1 luggage shipping service worldwide. Research by the consumer watchdog Which? found that Send My Bag prices beat airline baggage charges, and our money-saving, hassle-eliminating service is being talked about everywhere from the Daily Mail to The Financial Times.
When you’re moving on to the next stage of your education, things can start to get stressful. There is so much to think about, from the new place you’ll be living in, to the new people you’ll be meeting. The last thing on your mind is how you will manage to stay within your airline's student baggage allowance. It’s only once you get to the airport and you are hit with extortionate excess baggage charges that you realise you have over packed. So why not consider student removals and student shipping as a stress-free alternative to dragging your bags with you on your journey to university?
There are many problems associated with taking student luggage to university or college, no matter the mode of transport. There can be high costs associated with taking your luggage on your flight, especially as airlines deter passengers from checking bags by imposing high checked baggage charges and even higher excess baggage charges. Luggage is just as much of a hassle when travelling by train as you struggle to pull several suitcases onto a train while other passengers push past you. Similarly, trying to pack everything into the car, along with mum, dad and your little sister is anything but fun.
Send My Bag provides a fantastic solution to the stresses of travelling with luggage. We offer an international student removals service that ships your student luggage door to door in next to no time. All you need to do is empty your bedroom into sturdy bags or reinforced cardboard boxes, ensuring there’s nothing breakable inside them. Then you simply need to book in your luggage shipping online at Send My Bag using the quick quote tool for an estimate of delivery dates and prices. Our student courier service collects your bags and boxes from home, and delivers them to your student digs. At the end of term, your luggage can be collected again from your halls of residence and delivered back home.
International Student Shipping
Students taking Gap Years are increasingly heading abroad for extended periods of time. Many of these students quickly come to discover the issues and high costs associated with taking their luggage abroad with them. Problems arise when backpacks exceed hand luggage allowances or overweight checked baggage incurs high excess baggage fees.
To avoid the hassle and embarrassment of excess baggage charges, your best option might be to use our international student shipping service to send your bags on ahead. This means you can have everything you need, when and where you need it, without having to break the bank to get it there. You can use our student courier service for various shipping needs, whether you need to send an extra bag packed with uni stuff for an Erasmus year abroad, or you need to send luggage as far afield as Australia or Thailand to kick start your Gap Year tour. By choosing student shipping you will not only avoid hidden fees from your airline, but you will also avoid the hassle of carting heavy bags around the airport and to and from your accommodation, and even save time by not having to wait at check-in or at the luggage carousel.
With our handy quick quote tool, you’ll be able to estimate how much your student shipping will cost, even if you need to send your bags to an especially far-flung destination. All you need to do is select your student shipping pick-up date with our couriers online. Then, you should ensure your bags are properly packed and that they don’t include any items that are restricted in your destination country. Once everything is appropriately labelled, we’ll do the rest; it couldn’t be simpler.
