  • Freighting
    You arrived in the UK with two suitcases but now everything you want to keep would fit into 6 suitcases!

    How are you going to get it all back home?

    Simple - Click 2 Campus can arrange everything for you: we will send you the boxes, collect everything from your accommodation and take it to our warehouse by Heathrow Airport ready for freighting to your home.

  • Homeward Bound Freighting
    Our convenient HBF service makes your life easier by:

     
    • providing you with correct freighting boxes or crates
    • collecting your possessions from your accommodation
    • processing everything at our warehouse (near Heathrow Airport) ready for UK Customs
    • security scanning everything for speedy clearance
    • transport your possessions to the carrier company's depot

  • Costs
    The cost of our homeward-bound freighting (HBF) service is impossible to give here as there are so many variables to consider:

     
    • where it is being collected from
    • how much it weighs (individual items and as a whole)
    • how big it is (the volume of individual items and as a whole)
    • whether you want it sent by air (quicker but more expensive) or by road/sea (slower but cheaper)
    • where you want it sent

    Estimates are based on either the actual weight or 'volumetric weight' of each item - whichever is the greater. For instance, a box of coursework books will cost more than the same box containing just a duvet / comforter. Volumetric weights are calculated using the formulas:

    Domestic freight
    Length x Width x Height in centimetres / 4000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms

    International freight
    Length x Width x Height in centimetres / 6000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms.

    Please note: no single item can weigh more than 25 kilograms and no single measurement can be larger than 1m (100cms). Heavy items can be freighted / shipped but you must check with us in advance. Big items become very expensive because of their 'volumetric weight' but again, you must check with us in advance.

    * collections are at specified dates (designated by each institution). If you want a personalised collection, either for a private address (within 3 miles / 5 kilometres of the university) or on a non-designated date, there is be an additional charge (25.00 for the first cubic metre, 30 for two cubic metres and 35 for three cubic metres) to cover the cost of our vehicles

    For collections within the London Congestion Zone there will an additional charge of 8 to cover this unavoidable fee.

    All items must be packed in appropriate boxes, crates or suitcases. We cannot accept un-packed items i.e. lamps, kettles, music-systems, student trophies (i.e. traffic-cones or road-signs) etc. See our notes below for more details.

    PLEASE NOTE: we only make collections on week days (Monday to Friday) - not on Saturdays or Sundays - and our normal collection times are between 10am and 3pm (often dependant on work-loads and traffic)

    Collections for other universities can be arranged - please contact us to make enquiries.

  • How To Arrange Freighting
    Please CLICK HERE to send us an email requesting freighting information. We will email you a form back that we need to complete and return to us so we can get a good idea of what you want sent home so we can provide you with an accurate estimate of the costs.

    PLEASE NOTE: working out estimates for shipping / freighting takes time; make sure you leave at least 7 working days for us to find you the best method and most preferential prices. Once you have agreed a price and we have collected your package/s from your accommodation, you must leave at least 14 working days until you can expect your things to be delivered to you home.

    Although we could most possibly get your things shipped / freighted quicker, this duration will ensure we have time to complete all the necessary customs paperwork and mandatory checks and procedures.

  • Advice
    Planning ahead

     
    • measure and record the sizes (in centimetres) of the items you want to send home (if you are buying boxes from us, all the measurements are on the supplies section
    • use a set of bathroom scales to weigh and record the weight of each of the items you want freighted
    • email all-unied for advice and to be sent a form that will need completing for an accurate estimate
    • confirm the dates for collection as far ahead as possible
    • arrange suitable insurance (see notes below)

    Packing up

     
    • be careful not to mistakenly pack any personal valuables which you might need (i.e. passport, travel documents, handbag, wallet, keys, PDA, etc.) (see notes below )
    • use proper sturdy double-walled storage boxes that will not collapse (see notes below)
    • pack items securely in the boxes and seal shut to avoid breakages / losses (baggage handlers worldwide are not renowned for their careful treatment of items!)
    • ideally, use the lockable / sealable crates supplied by All-Unied
    • spread heavy items amongst your luggage / boxes so that no pieces are overly heavy
    • wrap china and glass piece by piece. Put the heaviest items at the bottom and pad out corners and empty spaces
    • clearly mark / label all your boxes and cases with your name and home destination address
    • empty and dry out any rice-cookers, steamers, kettles, irons etc

    You must not pack:

     
    • gas, petrol and other flammable items
    • lighters, batteries, aerosols and fireworks
    • perishable goods
    • any liquids
    • dangerous chemicals
    • live animals
    • or any goods of an illegal nature

    You will be liable for any damage to any third-party property as a result of you packing the above items. Please check our Terms & Conditions. (and see notes below )

    Notes:

    You must be ready for our driver when he comes to collect your possessions. If our driver has to wait while you finish packing (including the labelling of your items or repacking due to improper containers being used by you) or for any other reason, you will charged a rate of 20 per hour.

    We strongly advise that you insure your property. It is your responsibility. Unfortunately, all-unied does not offer insurance at this time.

    Once we have collected your items to be shipped / freighted home it will be exceeding difficult (or even impossible) to regain access to them. You must therefore be absolutely certain that you have not mistakenly packed any items (passport, etc.) you are likely to need before your items are delivered to your home.

    Any items not packed in an appropriate way (for instance, a bin-liner of books) will not be accepted by the collection driver.

    all-unied (and their appointed agents) reserve the right to open and inspect any box / crate / container / suitcase (or other item) suspected of containing any disallowed items / goods / substances. Should this circumstance occur, all-unied will not be liable for any damage caused to the container or goods held within.
