What is Excess Luggage?
Have you ever arrived an airline baggage check-in desk to realise your suitcase exceeds the weight allowance by 10kg? This is categorised as baggage excess.
When you book a flight, you are given a luggage allowance or you have the chance to purchase an allocation. Regardless if this is given or paid, the weight restriction on the said piece of baggage is usually 20 to 25kg.
Any luggage that exceeds the airline’s weight, quantity or dimension restrictions is classed as extra baggage and it is not cheap to send this via a domestic airline. Unbeknown to many, if you want to take four extra suitcases and two bags abroad, you can do so using a dedicated excess baggage company, meaning paying extortionate airline excess baggage charges is NOT your only option!
We use freight forwarding when sending excess baggage to save money, time and unnecessary fuss. You won’t have to queue in long luggage drop-off queues or waste time at collection carousels at the other end. More so, you won’t have to drag more luggage than you can comfortably manage or worry about the bad handling of your extra suitcases. You can send virtually anything when you ship excess baggage overseas. From clothes and shoes, boxes of arts, craft and books, tea cartons of toiletries, home comforts and English foods, computers, musical instruments, sports equipment, weights, artwork, frames and pictures; your extra luggage possibilities are endless!

Firstly, using us to send excess baggage overseas is easy. Using our online facilities, you can book a video survey and receive a quote within a few steps. You can also monitor the location of your extra luggage using our online tracking system.
Pulling a surfboard, two cabin bags and three extra suitcases is a chore when you are just one person, and they will be nothing but an inconvenience on your journey. If you are on a multi-stop trip or if you just want to make travelling easy, you should employ Anglo Pacific to ship excess luggage from the UK.
Our services for sending baggage overseas will ease the strains from lifting heavy luggage and the tensions of time wasting at baggage drop-offs and collection carousels. However, the main reason people come to us for shipping baggage is for our economical prices.
We don’t charge on a ‘per-kilogram’; basis so our excess baggage shipping quotes can sometimes be hundreds of pounds cheaper than airline fees, leaving you with extra money better spent upon your arrival.
Extra Luggage Costs
The reason you have come to Anglo Pacific in the first place is no doubt to avoid the extortionate extra luggage charges in flight. Therefore, we strive to provide our customers with economical excess baggage costs every time.
Rather than unfair charges for every kilogram, we calculate extra luggage costs based on the dimensions or the number of extra suitcases and bags you want to send. Your items are packed into appropriately sized tea cartons or moving boxes and each box size variant has a fixed fee.
The transport method you choose for excess baggage shipping from the UK is also factored into your quote; we use one, or a combination of, road, air and sea freight to send your luggage abroad. The most beneficial transport method is dependent on your budget, time-frame and end location; sea freight is the cheapest way of shipping excess luggage. We send your extra bags in a shared shipping container and the baggage shipping costs are calculated from the cubic volume of your consignment. Sea freight is ideal for customers on a budget but you must be prepared to wait a few weeks for your extra bags to arrive, especially for deliveries in far afield countries such as Singapore, New Zealand or Australia.
If you need your extra luggage in a hurry, our air freight solution is fitting, but the speedy service has much higher excess baggage costs than sea freight.
