At ShipYourBaggage.com there are certain items we do not carry and these fall under our prohibited and restricted items. If you are in any doubt as to whether we can ship items you are wanting to send, please always check with us by contacting us via our website.
Some items may seem perfectly acceptable to be sending as cargo, but in reality they are deemed to be dangerous goods or hazardous cargo. As the shipper of the goods, it is your responsibility to make sure you are correctly declaring any hazardous goods that you are shipping overseas. Failure to declare any dangerous goods within your shipment can lead to the possibility of fines and confiscation/destruction of the offending goods. This could also mean you incurring additional costs, for the offending items to be removed and/or destroyed. Therefore it is paramount, that you are clearly declaring any hazardous goods that you are looking to ship. Do bear aware that shipping hazardous goods is something we can handle at ShipYourBaggage.com, but this would be subject to acceptance by the carrier, the hazardous goods would need to be packed to acceptable conditions and of course, additional charges would apply.
Below are some examples of items which are classed as hazardous goods:
– Fuel / Fuel Tanks
– Firearms & Ammunition
– Radioactive Materials
– Cylinders (Pressurised/Non Pressurised)
Hazardous goods/Dangerous goods include articles and substances that are flammable, corrosive, toxic, oxidizing, explosive, radioactive, infectious, compressed gases, dangerous when wet, spontaneously combustible, self-reactive, organic peroxides and regulated material.
Remember it is your responsibility to declare all hazardous/dangerous goods you are looking to ship. These can be accepted on our services, but we must be notified in advance, so that we can quote for the hazardous goods separately. Our standard pricing displayed on our website does not apply to any hazardous goods.
We will not accept any valuable cargo on our services, which are (but not limited to) the following items:
– Travellers Cheques
– Stamp Collections
– Similar high valuable items
ShipYourBaggage.com do not handle any shipments of waste materials, such as scrap metal or tyres.
