I've used uni baggage to ship many items, both small and large and the service has always been of the highest standards. Friendly guys who are always willing to help out with unusual requests and try and get the most competitive prices out there. Would recommend to anyone!
I can only recommend Unibaggage. I have shipped two suitcases from England to Germany and they arrived a day earlier than they were supposed to.
Unibaggage has been very helpful with all my questions and I have felt supported at all times. I would always "work with them" again.
Thank you Unibaggage!
I will use again - uni-baggage very helpful
I have used UniBaggage several times now, I live on the Isle of Man (which isn't the quickest place to get to/from) and my Daughter in London. I cannot fault them, either end they are punctual, helpful and courteous. A couple of times the parcel has been both collected earlier and delivered earlier but they always contact you in advance and let you know. Brilliant I recommend them to everyone I know including a couple of companies.
My daughter's bag was picked up on the arranged day (it would have been nice to have a narrower window for pick up) by very pleasant DHL driver who checked I hadn't put anything in that customs wouldn't like and reassured me that they didn't lose things.
We really enjoyed the bag tracker, it was great to know exactly where the bag was.
The bag arrived in Italy in 2 1/2 days but unfortunately the weekend interfered and it couldn't be delivered for another couple of days.
I had to send on 2 bottles of contact lens solution a couple of days later at the post office (no liquids allowed in the bag for international travel) and for a really small box weighing less than 2kg it cost almost £14.
Just shows what excellent value this service is.
We will definitely be booking a return service (or 2 depending on purchases) in the summer.
I have used uni baggage twice. Why? Because as a student, especially as an international student you buy a whole load of stuff during your studies, textbooks, kitchware, you name it. But at one point it is time to go home. How can you take all your stuff with you? With Uni Baggage you can send everything from one country to another for a reasonable 'student-agreeable' price and the best part it is A DOOR TO DOOR SERVICE, because no-one really wants (or can) carry everything to the post office.
So what about the 'middlemen'. Well, the people collecting my stuff have been great, friendly and answered questions, but unfortunately you do occansionally get black sheep: When my stuff arrived at home, the delivery guy was rather impatient. My mum cannot yet teleport from the 2nd floor to the front door instantly, so he got really angry, becasue he had to wait a few mins. He broke a window and when my mum arrived at the door 3 -4 minutes later, shouted at her and threw the boxes down with such a force that one bursted open. We have written a formal letter of complain.
I don't blame Uni Baggage, but if you send your stuff, make sure everything is packed securely, so if you get a black sheep, nothing breaks.
Many Thanks to Unibaggage for a swift, user friendly and efficient service.
Bags delivered by helpful couriers, low cost and within the specified timeframes
I have recommended this company to many friends and work colleagues with children at University not only in the UK but further afield.
Also useful service for baggage transfers in respect of short term job relocation.
Will definately use this company in the future
I am very happy with my experience of uni baggage. The order process was easy to navigate and I liked the quick quote option before ordering. Everything went well with my delivery, the parcel arrived the day before it said it would (so great that it was so quick) but I wasn't in, fortunately a flat mate was around to accept it. One slight niggle, it would be nice if the labels came through a little sooner but that's just because I like to be super organised, really there was plenty of time between receiving the labels and the parcel being collected. Thanks!
For the pick up day Parcel Force South West London gave me a window time of nine hours from 9am to 6pm. The buzer was not working, so I asked if someone can give me a ring, but they said that it does not work like this!!! I have been nine hours looking after the delivery guy from my window, just next to the building entrace, but I missed the pick up service as the guy pulled over the van around the corner, come to the buzer and run away...!!!! The day after I had to leave my flat at 1pm to take my fly, I told them my situation, but they said that the guy may come in the morning but is not guarantee.... at the end the guy came but it was very stressful and I had to stand in the street to avoid to miss him again..!!!!
Very happy with the service and the price, the package was collected most efficiently and delivered on time and in good condition. My one issue is that I was not told that the DHL courier would need to search the package on collection - I had it all sealed up very securely and was made to undo the box for searching, after which it obviously had to be sealed up again. This took a bit of time and I would have liked to have known this in advance and not sealed the box before collection. But a fairly small issue all in all, everything else was great.
Don't know why I only heard of Uni Baggage this summer. Why do not all university students know about this fabulous service. My son was able to travel light when flying to England and only take carry on baggage, saving on the costly checked in bags. It made his journey so much easier catching trains and buses to his new abode. His bag was booked with Uni Baggage and arrived as expected the same day he did. A large 30kg bag crammed with his stuff cost £18.99 door to door. Happy days
What a find in Uni Baggage. Son in Edinburgh at Uni, bike which he simply must have in deepest Dorset....problem!! Not for Uni Baggage picked up at 2pm Dorset being ridden by son in Edinburgh by 3.45pm following afternoon.! How's about that for service ! Outstanding !
Thoroughly recommend Uni Baggage...so pleased someone recommended them to me.
I can' t rate this company highly enough I would give them 10 stars if they were available. Sooo stress free in this busy world where nothing goes 100% right. Thank you Paul Stewart for having the common sense and the nerve to set up your company. You save a lot of parents a fortune on baggage charges sending their children off to uni (it's stressful enough without luggage worries and airport prices). My daughters luggage was collected from our home on the Friday to arrive at uni on Tuesday, it actually arrived on the Monday no problems no hassle amazing!!! Thanks again. You deserve a lot of credit for making our lives easier.
Unibaggage was recommended by a school friend. I found the weight allowance very generous for the price, By far the cheaper, easiest and quickest way to move large numbers of books from the UK to Dublin.
I first used uni baggage when I left Ireland to move to University in Manchester, the service was excellent, they arrived to my home, took my suitcase which was rather heavy, and arrived to my halls on the date and time they said with no complaints! I did not have a great experience at University and had to come home as soon as possible, therefore using uni baggage again, this time with 2 very big and heavy suitcases, and again no problems and no complaints, all went perfect and I got all my personal belongings home to Ireland within 2 days as expected. Great service, highly recommend!
I was recommended Uni Baggage by a friend and was a bit skeptical a first as I'd never done anything like this before. It was so easy to set up, my things were picked up and delivered door to door with no fuss. Also, being able to track your items is a bonus. Definitely using again!
A perfect solution for bringing my luggage to uni which was far too much for me to carry on the train! My box was collected promptly at 9.30am, but did not arrive until late afternoon the following day - perhaps for the next day delivery service this is often the case, so I needen't have had to wait around for the delivery all day. However, I safely received my box and will definitely be using UniBaggage again for my next trip.
Uni baggage was the best way to send my belongings home, such a fast and cheap service! it was better than any other i had previously used with the door to door service and i would recommend to everyone!
Service was second to none. Was more than a bit worried when the van arrived to collect the guitar on Thursday last, but it arrived in Rome as advised on Tuesday 1st October as advised. I really was releived when my son phoned to say it was in perfect condition. Should not have been so pessimistic!! Would highly recommend UniBaggage to anyone wishing to send anything abroad. Many thanks UniBaggage.
I am sure you will do very well in the future, great service.
I was originally told my parcel would take 3-5 days to reach Germany from the UK. The box was collected Tuesday afternoon and arrived at it's destination Thursday morning, less than 2 days later. Brilliant service which I would recommend to anyone thinking of using Uni Baggage.
