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 South Africa, 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 South Africa, you can do so via an external baggage freight forwarder, meaning that paying over the odds to send luggage to South Africa 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 South Africa 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 South Africa 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.

We can use one of, or a combination of, road, sea freight and air freight for South Africa luggage shipping, the method you chose with depending on your budget, time-frame and end destination in South Africa.
