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
With our growing network of retail service centres across the UK, PACK & SEND are able to collect your items from your hotel, cruise ship or accommodation and at time that suits you, package them securely for international shipment and then deliver them to over 80,000 locations around the world on any one of a number of our international shipping and delivery services.
For most holiday purchases international air shipping is the ideal solution and should you be continuing your travels prior to retraining home we can arrange to store your items and ship them so that they arrive at home when you do.
When sending personal effects by air, PACK & SEND offers a reliable and very economical air cargo service. By using the PACK & SEND air cargo service, you not only receive personalised ‘white glove’ service levels, but you can also be assured of greater peace of mind when it comes to the security of your baggage.
