Excess baggage, luggage or personal effects, are terms used to describe items of personal property that you own and consign for shipment overseas. PACK & SEND offers a range of personalised excess baggage and luggage services to meet the needs of:
International university students
Visiting tourists on holiday
Corporate business people with deadlines
Whether it is computers, books, equipment, clothes, or other indispensable items that won’t fit in the overhead airline locker – talk to PACK & SEND and discuss how we can collect, custom pack and send your excess baggage to your door.
The PACK & SEND ‘Door-to-Door’ service, covers standard customs clearance and delivery to your door (excluding government charges and taxes). The Door-to-Depot service is for delivery to the depot only. With the Door-to-Depot service, there may be further charges to pay at the destination, which may include terminal handling, storage and documentation fees. At most destinations, you can clear 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.
Contact your local PACK & SEND store to discuss which will be the best option for your needs.
Air Freight or Sea Freight?
PACK & SEND offers both air freight and sea freight services for personal effects and excess baggage. Experience has found when sending from New Zealand that up to 100 kilograms can sometimes be more economical by air than by sea. Sea freight generally starts to become economical when the size of your shipment approaches 1 cubic metre or 8 shipping cartons (Removalist Boxes 42x44x61cm). You may be able to get together with other friends returning home or moving overseas to consolidate your personal effects and save money.
Contact your local PACK & SEND store to advise you on the best excess baggage solution.
Wow talk about service with a smile.
These guys Mark and Andrew couldn't have tried any harder to help me and they undercut NZ Post hugely.
They will be getting all of my repeat business in the future.
And to top it all off they tell me that my package will be delivered in less than a week. In the past it has taken up to three weeks for a smaller parcel go go to the same address.
Hats off to you Mark and your super cool staff.
I would like to publicly thank, and recommend Richard from Tauranga Pack and Send. I required an urgent shipment of furniture and personal effects from Whakatane to Sydney in a very short time-frame and Richard could not have been more accommodating or willing! He uplifted within a couple of days and when I went to his office in Tauranga the day after uplifting to complete all the paperwork, he had packaged all items so thoroughly and carefully. He also helped me complete the customs paperwork very efficiently and within about 20 minutes we were all done! He kept me informed of progress and I received my shipment at my home in Sydney exactly one week later! Richard is professional, efficient and he cares about what he does. I can't recommend him and his service highly enough! I am so grateful. Elizabeth Sullivan, Sydney
