Great service in reasonable price.
I used sendmybag to send my luggage from UK to Nepal and got my bag delivered on time. Though i had to clear the customs myself, it wasn’t a hassle. Furthermore as the items I imported were non-taxable it makes sense for me to make a personal presence for customs clearance.
The only problem i faced was the fact that the driver does not call or text when he/she reaches the collection point. Also no particular window of time is given for the arrival of the driver. This is something sendmybag should work on. At least a text with window of time would be of great convenience. But for me, as I sent my bag from university accommodation, I dropped my bag at my porters lodge and it was picked up without any issue. Already recommended their service to a number of friends and family.

Important Nepal Customs Information

Holiday baggage and other time sensitive packages should not be sent on this route.

The volume of shipments sent to this destination across the last 12 weeks has not been sufficient to meet our minimum number of on time shipments required for holiday baggage approval.

On this route you are required to visit the destination country’s official customs website and make yourself aware of any requirements, processes or fees, which may be due based on your personal circumstances and what you are shipping.

Upon arrival in the destination you agree to comply with any customs processes, provide the customs authority with any information they request and to discuss the clearance of the shipment directly with the customs authority or our delivery partner in the destination.

General Customs Information

Personal effects are usually assessed as used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is checked by customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas gifts please check with the destination country so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.

In order to demonstrate your shipment is personal effects you will be required to complete a brief non generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "5 x Cotton T-Shirts, 2 x Jeans, 3 x Cotton Shirt" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

Customs processes and allowances do vary by country and as such we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of the destination.

More information is available on our customs information page.
