Why ship your snowboard overseas?
Renting snowboards at the resort is never as good as using your own — they feel different, glide differently and could give us worse results. Using boards that we know and love means more comfort and more fun. After all, we want to move as fast and free as possible!
From professionals travelling for competitions to winter getaways with family, there are many reasons to send a snowboard overseas. Luckily, our international luggage delivery company can transport all your equipment to your destination stress-free.
Send snowboards overseas with our trusted shipping services
Whether tackling the steepest slopes or zig-zagging down untouched glades, it's not the same without your favourite board. But travelling with snowboards plus your other luggage can be difficult. You have to lug your snowboard and any other bags to the airport, pass security and hope they appear unscathed at the baggage carousel.
Skip the stress by choosing our international shipping services. We've been shipping skis, snowboards, bicycles and all kinds of sports equipment and luggage abroad for over 25 years. We'll come to your door, collect your snowboard, box it at our nearest depot, send it to your destination country, pass it through customs and deliver it.
Because our luggage delivery company controls a worldwide network of depots, we offer a door-to-door experience. You can also send your other snowboard equipment using our Boxes and Bags Worldwide service for an affordable cost. Plus, our expert team and multilingual customer service support you at every step.

How to pack a snowboard for international shipping
We make the process of shipping snowboards internationally stress-free. As part of our Boxes and Bags Worldwide service, we'll collect your snowboard bag from your home and take it to our depot. Then, we'll carefully box it into a double-walled cardboard container and ship it to your destination country.
Double-check your quote to confirm that our vans are collecting your shipment. If collection is by one of our partners, your shipment won't be inspected until it arrives at our hub before export. In this instance, we strongly recommend buying a hard snowboard shipping box or case (Seven Seas Worldwide does not endorse these products), which can be reused and is cheaper than having to repair or replace a damaged board.
But there are a few important things for you to do to prepare your snowboard for shipping:
- Thoroughly clean and dry your snowboard. Doing so means you'll have clean equipment at your destination. If we receive an unclean board, you'll incur a cleaning charge. Plus, if a local environmental agency discovers organic matter during inspections, it could lead to delays and fines.
- Ensure your bindings are undone and folded down to prevent them from ripping your bag during transit.
- Protect the ends of your snowboard by covering them in cushioning materials such as bubble wrap, jackets, hats and scarfs, and secure with parcel tape.
- If possible, pack your board into a hard snowboard shipping box or bag for added protection.
- Weigh your snowboard inside its bag or box on bathroom scales to ensure it doesn't exceed our weight limit of 30kg/66lbs.
You can ship your snowboard boots, protective clothing, goggles and other winter gear in the same order. But please wrap them well with cushioning materials and pack them into strong cardboard containers. Top tip: place small accessories like gloves and sunglasses inside your boots!
Although not a professional packing service, our expert staff box your snowboard to a high standard. Our chemically strengthened cardboard containers protect your board during long journeys via land, air and sea.
We start by inspecting the exterior of your snowboard's bag for defects such as scratches. Then, we protect both ends of the bag by wrapping them in large pieces of foam tubing and securing them with parcel tape. We then further protect both ends with several layers of bubble wrap, secured with more parcel tape.
Next, we gently place your snowboard bag inside our box. If there is any movement, we'll add more bubble wrap until it stops. Finally, we secure the box's lid with several layers of parcel tape and label it, ready to be stored or shipped.
You can ship your snowboard boots, gloves, goggles and other winter gear in the same order. But please wrap them well with cushioning materials and pack them into strong cardboard containers.
Customs regulations when shipping snowboards abroad
Since we control a global network of depots, we can offer a door-to-door luggage delivery service, including customs clearance, in most countries where we operate.
All countries have certain items banned from importation to protect their people and environment. Please reference our Prohibited Goods page before booking for the latest information.
Log in to your account and complete the following:
- An inventory listing every item you want to send. Custom authorities will have access to it, so accuracy is a must.
- Optional insurance forms for peace of mind in the rare case your snowboard is lost or damaged.
- Colour scans of the shipment owner's passport picture and signature pages.
I was a little worried about having to send a snowboard and a large box from New Zealand to the US, both the cost and the idea of shipping it on a boat for three months. But the entire experience from start to finish was excellent. Communication was clear, everyone I spoke to was kind and helpful, and they answered any concerns and questions immediately. The price was very reasonable for shipping something so large and for the service you get. They really did a great job of making a somewhat stressful and annoying process as painless as possible. I highly recommend Seven Seas Worldwide. If I need to ship any larger packages, I definitely know who I will be using.Brandon
