If you’ve ever tried to ship excess baggage with an airline, you’ll know just how much hassle and expense it can be – especially if shipping long distances such as the UK to New Zealand.

Using an airline’s excess baggage service is very much not the cheapest or most convenient way to send your belongings over to New Zealand – nor is it always the quickest. If you’re moving house, working away or travelling for a few months, you should know that there is a far better way to ship excess baggage.
