Frequently asked questions

What types of items can be shipped as unaccompanied personal effects?

Typically, unaccompanied personal effects include items such as clothing, toiletries, sports equipment, musical instruments and books. Prohibited or restricted items vary according to the transport company. It is recommended that you consult us to find out what restrictions apply to your belongings.

What are the restrictions on items that can be shipped as unaccompanied personal effects?

Prohibited or restricted items can include dangerous objects, illegal substances, perishable goods, weapons, etc. It is vital that you allow us to thoroughly check the shipping company’s policies on your behalf.

What are the costs of transporting unaccompanied personal effects?

Costs depend on weight, volume, destination, transport company and additional services required. We recommend that you submit a request for a detailed quote prior to shipment.

How do I calculate the volume of my parcels?

To calculate the volume of a box in cubic centimetres (cm³), use the following formula:

Volume = Length × Width × Height

Make sure you measure the length, width and height of the box in centimetres. Next, multiply these three sides together to obtain the volume in cubic centimetres.

For example, if the length of the box is 10 cm, the width is 5 cm and the height is 8 cm, the calculation is as follows:

Volume = 10 cm × 5 cm × 8 cm = 400 cm3

So here, the volume of the box is 400 cm3.

How do I properly pack personal effects for unaccompanied transport?

It is recommended that you use appropriate packing materials, such as sturdy boxes, bubble wrap and adhesive tape. It is also important to protect fragile items adequately. However, some fragile items should not be transported as personal effects given the handling chain involved. Please consult our experts before departure.

Is insurance available for unaccompanied personal effects?

Some transport companies have insurance to cover loss or damage during transit. We recommend that you take out appropriate insurance for additional protection.

How can I track the shipment of unaccompanied personal effects?

Most transport companies provide a tracking number for shippers to follow the location of their personal effects during transit. This number can be checked online or via our customer service department.
