How do I track my shipment?You will also receive an email once your shipment has been collected with the link to track your items, and a further email once your shipment has been loaded for delivery. Our support team are here to help with any other questions. How long will it take for my shipment to arrive?The delivery times will vary depending on the destination country. Once confirmed our team will provide an estimated delivery time based on information provided by our courier partners. Should your shipment be travelling on a route were your items must pass through customs, there maybe some slight delays to process and release your shipment. What time will you collect my shipment?Collections typically take place between 9:00am – 6:00pm, and we will where possible provide a 4-hour collection window once your shipment is confirmed.
What do I need to do before collection?Once your order is placed, tracking labels will be generated and emailed to you. If sending a route that requires customs clearance you will also be required to complete a packing list detailing the contents of your items, and on some routes complete an additional form for customs. You will need to attach your labels, and customs documentation were applicable, securely to the item you are shipping. If you don't have a printer, we can arrange to print and send the labels to you via post for a small additional fee and this option is available during booking. You will be provided with both an external tracking label to attach to the outside of your item using a strong sticky tape and attaching the label to a flat surface. How should I prepare my shipment?We recommend using our sturdy double walled cardboard shipping boxes and suitcases boxes which are designed to hold the weight packed and can be purchased. Boxes should be secured by running tape across the folded flaps at the top and bottom, as well as in a loop around the box from back to front and from side to side. We also suggest running tape along the seams of boxes. Only taping across the folded flaps is not sufficient. It is important items are secured within your box so they cannot move around and become damaged in transit.
What can I send? Our shipping service is designed for sending clothing, shoes, books and other items which do not require additional packaging when placed in a suitcase or sturdy double walled cardboard box. If you choose to send non-standard excess baggage items you must ensure the items are packaged thoroughly and appropriately for transportation through an network. Your suitcase or box may be stacked with other items and will move on automated belts and slide down sorting chutes. For this reason, we are also unable to accept single walled cardboard boxes, plastic boxes, plastic bags, laundry bags, bin liners or similar items.
