Door-to-Door, or Door-to-Port Excess baggage

PACK & SEND offers a range of sea freight and air cargo services for sending personal effects overseas. We offer both ‘Door-to-Door’ and ‘Door-to-Depot’ services. The PACK & SEND price for ‘Door-to-Door’ covers the total delivery and clearing service (excluding government charges and taxes). The Door-to-Depot price is for delivery to the depot only.

A Door-to-Depot service does not necessarily mean a cheaper service than the total Door-to-Door service. In many cases (depending on the destination and consignment size) a Door-to-Door service can be far more economical as well as being very convenient. With the Door-to-Depot service, there may be further ancillary charges to pay at the destination and this may include airport terminal fees, storage fees, and documentation fees.

At most destinations, you can clear your goods by yourself to avoid customs clearance charges, but it requires time to visit the Customs office with your passport, shipping documents and complete the necessary Customs forms.

Holiday Purchases delivered to your home

PACK & SEND has a growing network of retail service centres across the UK. We’ll collect your items at a place and time that suits you and package them securely for shipment. The scale of our international shipping and delivery services means we deliver to over 80,000 locations around the world.

For most holiday purchases international air shipping is the ideal solution. If you’re continuing your travels before returning home we’ll even arrange to store your items and ship them so that they arrive at home when you do.
