How to pack your suitcase for shipping with UPS

For better protection of your suitcase and its content, we recommend packing your item appropriately, as described below:

  • Pack your items inside the luggage safely so that they will not be moving during transit.
  • Put the suitcase inside a cardboard box.
  • Close and seal the box with strong tape.

UPS Luggage box – how does it work

Besides offering luggage shipping solutions, UPS also offers a cardboard box named “luggage shipping box”. You can use this box to either pack your goods directly or pack the suitcase itself. Since it is made with resistant material and optimised dimensions, many customers use UPS Luggage Box to pack their personal belongings for shipping or send as checked baggage when flying.

UPS luggage boxes come in two possible dimensions, as described below:

Can I send a suitcase with UPS without packing it into a box?

When shipping luggage with UPS, do I have to bring the suitcase to a store?
It depends on the selection you made during the booking process.
