5 Advantages of Using a Luggage Shipping Company

Posted on: November 7th, 2014 by admin No Comments

There’s actually a third option that you might not be considering: the use of a luggage shipping company. A luggage shipping company ships your luggage in advance, usually using a carrier such as FedEx, UPS or USPS.

1. Your Luggage Won’t Get Lost

You can send your luggage in advance to make sure that your luggage has gotten to its destination. You can even track your luggage as it travels! If your luggage has important items in it, you probably don’t want to risk any delays.

2. You Don’t Need To Carry It With You

Carrying luggage can be a stressful process in and of itself, and you definitely don’t need it when you’re already undergoing the stress of travel. Shipping your luggage in advance means you don’t need to worry about getting it to and from the airport on your own, let alone carrying it into the plane.

3. You Have No Luggage Limits

On a plane, you usually can only carry two items of luggage — and they need to be under 50 pounds. But with a shipping company, you can ship as much luggage as you desire and you won’t need to carefully manage their weight.

4. You Don’t Need To Worry About Theft

Luggage theft can be a very real problem. After all, anyone can grab a bag off a carousel and walk straight out the baggage claim doors. If you have expensive items within your luggage (or just items that you don’t want to lose!), a luggage shipping company will completely bypass the possibility of your items being stolen.

5. You Don’t Need To Wait For It

Once your flight lands, you can get out of the airport — and to your hotel room or to your home, depending on which leg of your trip you’re on. Otherwise you’ll find yourself at the baggage claim, staring at dozens of very similar luggage items.

Of course, you can also endeavor to ship your luggage on your own — but it might be more expensive. The advantage of a luggage shipping company is that they usually handle all of the logistics for you and they often have discounted rates.
