Planning a long-distance move can be exhausting, not to mention all the hard work involved in the actual move itself. Just the thought of packing and carrying bags for a trip can be a drag. But, what if there were an easier way? For instance, a luggage shipping service that offers door-to-door service. Well, you’re in luck because several companies now offer this. In fact, some even go a step further and pack for you, while others will dry clean your clothes.    

 

World Baggage Network (WBN)

Transport your luggage anywhere in the world with the help of the World Baggage Network. This company has representatives on every continent. They claim that no job is too small and no location is too far or difficult to reach. If you want, you can even ship a single suitcase using their service rather than taking it on the plane with you. It will meet you at your desired destination.

Conversely, when you have a lot to ship, such as numerous suitcases and bulky boxes, WBN has you covered. You can ship up to 70 cubic feet of items from almost any domestic or international location. Typical clients of WBN include business travelers, expats, students, and athletes or sports teams who need their sports equipment shipped.  

How it works

  • To book with WBN visit their website, select your origin and destination country and the date you want your items picked up and delivered
  • Once you receive confirmation of your booking, it’s time to get your bags packed
  • A representative will arrive on your pick-up date to collect your bags
  • Finally, your bags will arrive on your requested delivery date  

Every single WBN office follows strict policies to ensure your valued possessions get handled and delivered with care while paying a competitive price.

 

DUFL

DUFL is a company that blends leading-edge technology with its shipping services. They specialize in taking the hassle and time out of packing for a trip. When you register to use their service, all your packing and luggage shipping happens virtually through their app. Blueground offers fully-furnished, equipped and serviced apartments in some of the world's most sought after cities.

  • After packing your bag, request pick-up through the DUFL app and send the welcome kit back
  • Once your suitcase arrives at a DUFL site, your items will get cleaned, photographed and inventoried (then you’ll be able to see everything in your DUFL virtual closet from the app)
  • When you’re ready to take a business trip or meet some friends for a vacation, pack your DULF bag using their app (tap on the photos of things you want to be included inside your suitcase)
  • Your packed suitcase will meet you at your hotel at the specific time and date selected 
  • Once your trip is over and you want to send your suitcase back, attach the shipping label provided by DUFL
