Send Excess Luggage to Australia with Anglo Pacific

Do you need to send excess baggage to Australia? Whether you are embarking on your fantasy gap year, migrating to Australia permanently, or looking to send some home comforts to a friend from the UK, Anglo Pacific’s extra baggage to Australia is the solution to your queries.

We began sending excess baggage from the UK to Australia some 40 years’ ago and in this time, our luggage services have gone from strength to strength. With over 20,000 consignments handled every year our teams understand the excess luggage shipping process like the back of their hand. Combine this with their helpful nature, our low prices and it is easy to see why we have become one of the UK’s leading luggage shipping companies for sending excess baggage to Australia.

We have a presence in Glasgow, London and Manchester but we will collect your extra bags from any UK address regardless of quantity, so it has never been easier to send a bag to Australia.

What is Excess Baggage?

Have you ever arrived at an airline check-in desk, to find out your suitcase exceeds the allowance by 10kg and you are about to be charged £15 per every extra kilogram? This extra weight is classed as excess baggage.

When you book your flight to Australia, you will be either granted one piece of checked-in luggage, or you will have the chance to purchase an allowance in the run-up to your flight. However, regardless if this is assigned or paid, the luggage will have a weight restriction that is usually between 20 and 25kg.

Any baggage that exceeds the weight, dimensions or quantity restriction that is enforced by the airliner is we call EXCESS BAGGAGE, which costs a pretty penny to pay for at the airport. Unbeknown to many, if you need to take extra suitcases to Australia, you can do so via an external baggage freight forwarder, meaning that paying over the odds to send luggage to Australia via commercial airliner is NOT your only option, luckily.

An excess baggage shipping company such as Anglo Pacific will send excess baggage from the UK to Australia using freight forwarding, saving you money, time and unnecessary hassle. You won’t have to wait around to collect your luggage at the other end and you won’t have to haul more kilograms or extra bags than you can comfortably manage.

Your excess baggage to Australia can be (almost) anything. From suitcases of clothes and shoes, boxes of books and crafts, tea cartons of toiletries and home comforts, bulky sports equipment, musical instruments, computers, artwork, pictures and frames; the list is endless.

Cost of Sending Excess Baggage from the UK to Australia

The reason you have come to Anglo Pacific in the first place is probably to avoid the unreasonably high airline baggage prices, so we do our best to make sure our customers receive the best price when shipping excess baggage from the UK to Australia.

Our Australia baggage shipping costs are based on the number of items you want to send and/or the dimensions of these goods. When you ship excess baggage to Australia using Anglo Pacific, you will pack your items into tea cartons or moving boxes that are provided by us and each size variant has a fixed price.

The transport method you use to send luggage from the UK to Australia is another contributing factor to the overall cost. We can use one of, or a combination of, road, sea freight and air freight for Australia luggage shipping, the method you chose with depending on your budget, time-frame and end destination in Australia.

Sea freight is always the cheapest way to forward excess baggage from the UK to Australia, perfect if you are on a budget but you must be prepared to wait a little longer for your luggage to arrive in Australia. If you need your extra bags, boxes and suitcases to arrive quickly, air freight is fitting but this speedy service means you will have to pay a higher rate.

What Do You Include in the Excess Luggage Costs?

As a thank you to our customers and to provide a pleasant experience, we incorporate all of the added extras into our already cheap excess luggage to Australia services.

We supply industry-approved packing materials, moving boxes and tea cartons and we then collect the packed boxes from your home. After shipping your goods to Australia, we will also deliver them directly to your door.

Moreover, our specialist movers and packers also complete the more tedious jobs involved with shipping excess baggage to Australia including organising insurance, the completion of the required documents and customs clearances at the other end.
