Step 1 – Get a quick quote

- The pick up country

Then, we will give you our best rate as well as an estimated date for delivery
Step 2 – Book online
After having agreed with the price of the quote, you will have to book your unaccompanied luggage online thanks to our booking system, it will only take you 5 minutes. All you will have to do is to choose a collection day, which can be any working day of the week
SINO Advice: We recommend you to book at least 24 hours in advance for domestic shipments, 48 hours in advance for non-EU collections and 72 hours in very remote areas.
Step 3 – Prepare your bag
You can find in our pages dedicated to different countries the information when it comes to which items can and cannot be transported to certain destinations.
Remark SINO: As a general rule, you should never pack aerosols, flammable liquids, or glass and you generally have to be sure that you have well packed for transit and that all cardboard boxes used are secure
The things to keep in mind at this step:
- The days before your collection (roughly 5 days before), you will receive an email that confirms your booking and that gives you a tracking number and links where you can download your labels.
- You will have to print the labels and attach them to your bags.
- If you book a week or more in advance, during checkout, we will let you choose between printing by your own the labels and receiving them printed at your home.
- We recommend you to put another copy inside each bag
Info SINO: Bags that are outside the EU will need customs clearance information. You will get this information by email, including forms for you to complete.
Step 4 – Collection
As a general rule, SINO Shipping collections are done between 9am and 6pm. Then, we work by time slot for pick up. The sender has not to hand the baggage over to the driver – that is to say that your neighbour can do it for you –. If this is the case, let us know in advance.
Please remind that items have to be collected at the main point of access, and that they have to be brought to the ground floor or reception
Step 5 – Track your bag

The principal Airlines of China and their charges in term of excess baggage
As you may have understood, each airline has its own fees for excess baggage. That is why we have decided to facilitate you the task by listing the three most important Chinese airlines and giving you a good vision of their tariffs.
As a reminder, a baggage is considered to be an excess baggage if it is oversized or overweight regarding the total baggage allowance.
The fees that are charged depend on the final destination of your flight, on whether you have a business class or an economy class plane ticket, and on what extent your baggage oversized the baggage allowance. You can find further information on the official website:
