Our team is headed by founder & CEO, Adam Ewart. Based at our Bangor, Northern Ireland office, Adam started SendMyBag to help students travel to and from Uni.
Since these early days SendMyBag has gone on to become the industry leader and innovator in this new travel market.

In 2013 the consumer watchdog, Which? revealed SendMyBag as not only the best value luggage shipper but also as better value than many low-cost airlines. SendMyBag has also been featured and reviewed in a wide range of national media in the UK and abroad (some snippets available here).
SendMyBag now provides services to and from more than 70 countries every month for a wide array of travellers from students to holidaymakers, from expats and corporate to military personnel. Adam is dedicated to preserving the company’s culture of innovation as SendMyBag grows on a global scale.

Our story is a simple one. Not so long ago, Adam travelled to Oxford to help his then girlfriend (now wife) Rebecca travel home from university with the usual eclectic range of student baggage.
After dragging suitcases along Oxford’s cobbled streets, sitting on a coach for 2.5 hours and taking part in a scrum at the bag drop, it wasn’t his favourite of travelling experience.
On finally reaching check-in, Adam had no option but to pay £60 because one of the suitcases was 3kgs over the limit.
Paying the fine was irritating, more than that, it didn’t make sense. The whole experience was just too much hassle and way too expensive. Adam searched online for a solution and one didn't exist. There had to be a better way.
On the plane home, Adam sketched out his plan for a door to door student baggage service. No more bag drop queues, excess baggage fees. Waiting at baggage carousels and negotiating public transport with bulky suitcases would be a thing of the past. Adam was sure he could make travel a much more enjoyable experience – like it used to be.
Within a week, his door to door UK service was available for students. After that came European services and now Sendmybag helps students, holiday makers, business travellers, sport enthusiasts and others travel worldwide every day.
We want to put the pleasure back into travel, and save you money along the way. Forget stuffing hand luggage and paying excess baggage fees, with Sendmybag you can travel with what you need, when you need it.
