Excess baggage service from Kiwi Movers
Kiwi Movers don’t just specialise in helping you move your belongings between homes or offices; we can help you send your personal items around the world, too.
Whether you’re planning a holiday, prepping for a business trip, going travelling (lucky you!) or relocating abroad, we know how difficult it can be to pack everything you need. The only thing worse than lugging extra luggage around the airport is being hit with those hefty excess baggage fees, which can cost you as much as £30 per extra kilogram!
With our Excess Baggage service, you can transport any item, of any size, to a long list of locations worldwide at an affordable price.
We use a trusted network of air freight services, who deliver your items to anywhere in the world within 7 to 10 days. It’s by far the fastest, most convenient and most cost-effective mode of transporting goods overseas. We also offer a sea freight service to select locations that takes a little longer (10 to 12 weeks) but is a cheaper option.
Here’s a list of the countries we ship to:
- New Zealand.
- South Africa.
- Canada (East and West Coasts).
- USA (East and West Coasts).
- United Arab Emirates.
What you get with excess baggage shipping from Kiwi Movers
Our Excess Baggage service is ideal for large and bulky items like sports equipment (including golf clubs, skis and snowboards), bikes, musical instruments, furniture, exhibition materials or simply extra suitcases filled with things you just can’t live without. There’s nothing worse than being forced to abandon your treasured possessions due to weight restrictions or baggage charges.
If you’re not sure whether your item(s) qualifies for our Excess Baggage service, just give us a call or drop us an email and ask — we’re don’t bite!
Whether you are transporting luggage to your holiday destination ahead of time, have accumulated a lot of stuff on your travels and want to send it back home, or are sending a care package to a loved one overseas, we’ll make sure it reaches its destination safely, securely and on time.
What’s more, our Excess Baggage service is completely hassle-free. Our door-to-door service handles everything from the collection (at a time that’s convenient for you) to the delivery, saving you a trip to the airport or post office. Our tracking service means you can follow your package every step of the way and see when it’s due to arrive. For even more peace of mind, there are no hidden costs and we offer a money back guarantee.
We can even provide you with durable, high-quality boxes and packing materials to make sure your precious belongings are protected — or you can let one of our experienced professionals do the packing for you.
Affordable alternative to taking luggage on the plane.
Before sending your package on its way, we’ll give you an accurate quote, along with the necessary paperwork you need to fill in. Each Excess Baggage delivery requires a completed customs inventory, a scanned copy of your passport and the relevant customs documents for the destination.
While our Excess Baggage service ships to locations around the world, we specialise in transporting goods to Australia and New Zealand (places we’re very familiar with, if you hadn’t already noticed!) They’re not the quickest or easiest places to reach from the UK, which is why sending stuff there by a traditional airline is so costly.
With Kiwi Movers’ Excess Baggage service, however, you can save up to 70% on the cost of shipping and sit back knowing that your package(s) will be there within 7 to 10 days by air freight, or within 10 to 12 weeks by sea freight. Whether you’re shipping to Australia or New Zealand (or both), you can use our handy Excess Baggage quote calculator below to give you an idea of the price.
