A Step-By-Step Guide to Our Baggage Air Shipping Service
Firstly decide what you are sending: bags, boxes and/or suitcases. If you are on an active holiday, then you may have sports equipment.
Secondly enter the location from where you are sending (country, town/city or postcode) and to where you are sending (again country, town/city or postcode).
Thirdly select what you want to send from our drop-down menu. We recommend using our boxes because they are specially reinforced to pack your possessions. The boxes and packaging materials supplied are included in the price.
The Quote Summary we will present you with the prices of both air and sea and the estimated time each service will take to deliver. Remember this is a summary, please click “Email” for detail.
If you are happy with our detailed quote and want to proceed then we ask that you pay a deposit, which is a small prepayment of the Shipping and Transportation charge. Then we recommend the delivery of a selection of our heavy-duty packing boxes. This delivery includes bubble wrap and tape.
We also recommend that you take a few extra boxes. There is no charge if you do not use them all, but please return the unused boxes returned in good condition. Whilst packing you should also complete the necessary shipping documentation online.
You will receive a scheduled time of the delivery the night before unless it is via one of our partners in which case the span of the scheduled time could be wider than our 1 or 2-hour arrival window.
You can book the collection online or give us a call if you have any questions.
A scheduled collection time will be sent to you the evening before your collection day.
When the shipment is collected, any boxes supplied by you – as well as unused ones - together with your bags and suitcases will be measured and weighed.
Then the Shipping and Transportation invoice is created. The amount to be paid is the Shipping invoice less the deposit already paid. As soon as it is paid, your shipment will be sent.
Depending on the air service you have selected your shipment will either be part of a larger air consignment sent to our hub in the destination country where it will be delivered to your address (Air Economy) or it will be sent directly to your address using one of our air partners (Air Express). Some routes may only offer Air Express.
Your shipment is processed through Customs and any environmental authorities. For Air Economy, all charges will be as you were originally quoted with no surprises.
After being cleared through those agencies and if your shipment is being sent through our air partners then it will be delivered directly to your address. We will be unable to schedule a time for your shipment delivery with our partners. The delivery will be to the door of the building. If you are not present then they will leave you a card to contact them to arrange another day. Alternatively if your shipment is through our depots then you will be notified. You can then book a day for the delivery and a scheduled time will be sent to you the evening before.
We offer a page of videos and advice on how best to pack your suitcases, bags and boxes. Trust us, there will be a few things of which you aren’t aware! If you’d like to discuss our services in more detail or you have an item which you are concerned about sending, then please call and speak to one of our advisers.
Alternatively, try our online quote engine. It should take about 30 seconds and there’s no obligation to order. Seven Seas Worldwide is an international group that specialises in sending only personal effects and household items around the world.
