Everything you need to know about Send My Bag
From idea to over 100,000 bags shipped
The SendMyBag team is headed up by founder & CEO, Adam who only wanted to help his girlfriend get her stuff home to Northern Ireland from uni. As some airlines had already started to charge considerably more for a second suitcase (or simply wouldn't allow more than 1 bag to be checked) near the end of term Adam would fly across for a weekend away and on his return take a large suitcase full of his girlfriend's stuff home.
On one occasion they both hauled suitcases across town, spent 2.5 hours on a coach and were then hit with an excess baggage charge of £60 at check-in due to one of the suitcases being only 3kg over the airline’s limit!
To Adam it was clear what needed to be done. After scouring the internet, he found nothing that would be able to solve his problem, so he had to do it himself: start a company that would make irritating fees, long queues and negotiating public transport with bulky and heavy bags into a thing of the past. And thus SendMyBag was born, making travel once again the enjoyable experience that it used to be.
Now an innovator in their sector, SendMyBag have gone on from small beginnings of just trying to help students get their bags home more quickly and easily without having excess luggage fees slapped on by airlines, to becoming the industry leader in the sector worldwide.
Today SendMyBag operates thousands of routes, has developed specialist and unrivalled cross boarder customs clearance procedures and provides support from the UK and NYC 7 days a week. Oh, and Which? also found our prices airline beating!

Even though I live in an awkward destination for shipping (Channel Islands) the team at SendMyBag did all they could to explain to me how I'd have my baggage shipped home. The team responded to all of my emails within a matter of hours and they were always incredibly polite and helpful.
The price is very competitive and I have already recommended SendMyBag to my brother who is also an overseas student.
