Excess Baggage Services by Sea

Shipping excess baggage by international sea freight can be a more economical option when the size of your shipment is large, or when delivery times are less urgent. PACK & SEND offers different international sea freight services for shipping your excess baggage. Let us know what you need, and we’ll put together a solution that works for you.


This sea freight service is a consolidated or part container service. We will consolidate your excess baggage and personal possessions into a shared container and then ship it to the port of destination.

PACK & SEND will then clear your international shipment through customs and pay the port fees and customs clearance charges (but not duties, taxes or inspection fees should there be any). Finally, we’ll arrange delivery of your excess baggage to your door.

Our service saves you the hassle of having to appoint a customs broker at the port of entry and having to pay port fees, customs clearance charges and onward delivery charges locally.


With this international sea freight service PACK & SEND will arrange either a full or part container delivery to the port of entry. From there you will be required to arrange customs clearance, pay the port fees and clearance charges, and then arrange to collect your effects from the port.

Full Container or Part Container

Do you have a significantly large international shipment of personal effects or excess baggage? If so, PACK & SEND will arrange for a 20ft or 40ft container for your sole usage.

The container can be loaded at your residence in the UK or at our facilities. We will then arrange shipment of the container by sea and delivery to either your address or to the port in the destination country. We are happy to talk to you about the various options and help you decide which is the most appropriate for your needs.

If you require an international shipment of excess baggage, PACK & SEND is the obvious choice. We have an extensive range of international sea freight and air cargo services. Tell us your needs and PACK & SEND will provide a solution that is right for you.
