Sending suitcases with DHL is a great alternative to paying the excess baggage fees when travelling or relocating. If you are also considering shipping your luggage internationally with DHL, read our guide below to understand how this service works. We have compiled updated information about DHL luggage shipping services and provided a tool for instant price calculation, including DHL and other renowned couriers.
Being a world-renowned logistics company, DHL offers luggage shipping services internationally across over 220 countries and territories worldwide. Whether you are based in the UK, USA, India or abroad, you can benefit from DHL wide logistics network to get your suitcases delivered. Depending on the route and the service of your choice, the delivery may be performed either by road, air or sea.
When shipping your suitcase with DHL directly, you will have to comply with the rules of the local DHL branch you will be booking with. In most cases, bags of up to 31,5 kg are allowed, but some countries have lower weight limits. For instance, DHL Parcel in the UK only allows items of up to 25 kg. To avoid any surprises, we strongly recommend checking carefully when booking the service.
To avoid confusion, simply book your luggage delivery through our platform. With the Standard Service, you can ship suitcases of up to 30 kg, but you can opt for the Regular Plus or Express Service for sending heavier pieces of luggage of up to 70 kg each.
For better protection of your suitcase and its content, we recommend packing your item appropriately, as described below:
