With Airlines Charging For Bags, Golf Clubs, Ski's Consider Shipping Them Instead

As airlines add luggage fees and travelers worry about airlines "mishandling" or "losing" luggage, Pak Mail Deerfield has a cost effective program to bypass the hassles of checking and transporting bags, giving travelers the peace of mind that their luggage will be delivered door-to-door.

    DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, January 21, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Like most travelers, you've probably never considered shipping your luggage ahead of you instead of carrying it with you on a trip. You may have shipped a few gifts to your destination instead of having the airport security ruin your gift-wrap, but otherwise it used to seem more practical, convenient and economical to check your bags with your airline.

Today major airlines are now charging travelers up to $30 round trip to check a first bag and up to $50 round trip for the second bag on domestic flights, even as they continue to mishandle luggage in record numbers. And if your bag is overweight, be prepared to shell out $50 or more in penalties on top of whatever fees you're already paying for the privilege of checking that bag.

In light of these changes, shipping your suitcase may suddenly look like a more attractive alternative.
With airline fees for a 60 pound suitcase as high as $100 or more each way, the Pak Mail Luggage Advantage program, available from the Pak Mail at 3840 West Hillsboro Blvd. gives travelers the peace of mind that their luggage will be delivered door-to-door to their destination on time and without the airline hassle.

"Pak Mail Luggage Advantage program offers door-to-door ground delivery of a 60 pound bag from Broward or Palm Beach County to Manhattan, NY for $58.00 each way or from the same area to Los Angeles, CA. for $86 each way. If the actual dimensions and weight of the bag is less, the actual shipping fee will be less," said Bill Lone, Pak Mail Deerfield President.

"Travelers schedule the service with Pak Mail Deerfield Beach; the baggage is picked up at the customer's location of choice, transported and delivered to the customer's final destination. It's that simple," says Lone.

Pak Mail Deerfield Beach has access to a network of transportation options to make sure that the items arrive on time using the most economic shipping method available. "As the travel industry works to redefine itself, so should the way consumers plan their travel in order to minimize the travel burden and annoyances like lost luggage," said Lone.
