What is Baggage?

If you reach out to a moving company and are told that you don’t qualify for their services, chances are your needs fall under the ‘baggage’ category.

Can I get Quotes for Baggage on Sirelo?

Yes, but not always. Unfortunately, we do not have any moving company in our network which offer baggage services globally.

If we are unable to fulfill your request, it is because we do not have a moving company which can handle your request on your desired route.

Why is this? Most moving company are structured to collect entire households of items, booking several hours or even several days of a moving crew’s time to carry out the move. Companies structured like this are usually unequipped to carry out small volume requests in an efficient and economical way.

Meanwhile, companies that handle baggage requests are equipped to handle high volumes of individual items, which normally means they are courier services.
