Honey, did you pack the kids’ bathing suits? What about sunscreen? Did you remember our phone chargers? How are we going to drag all this to the airport? And to our rental car?
Family vacations… some of the most incredible experiences for the younger ones in the family and some of the most stressful for the adults! In our experience, we’ve found that the most chaotic part of a family vacation is getting to your destination and returning home with all your belongings – which is why we’re pleased to introduce you to ShipGo.
Reduce the Stress of Luggage on Your Next Family Vacation
ShipGo is the world’s leading luggage shipping service and has truly reinvented how families travel with their baggage (both literally and figuratively!).
The idea is simple: you ship your luggage ahead with ShipGo and, in return, you can bypass all of the long lines at the airport and other stress points like bag check and baggage claim. So, instead of sweating your way to the airport, through TSA, onto the plane, and (eventually) to your rental car, you can just leave the heavy lifting to ShipGo!
Now, we know you wouldn’t trust just anyone with your luggage. And neither would we! So, let’s get into the details.
Stress-Free Travel from Door to Door
The stress-free (and bag-free) travel experience begins with pickup. ShipGo will come to your home, office, resort, or hotel and collect all of your luggage on the date that works best for you. All you have to do is pack!
ShipGo also offers several different shipping speeds. If you’re not in any rush for your luggage to arrive on the receiving end, consider opting for one of their ‘ground’ shipping speeds. Should your travel plans be more urgent, they offer services as quick as next-day delivery.
All shipments come with $500 of complimentary insurance with the option to insure each bag for up to $10,000. For even more peace of mind, all shipments also come with an on-time delivery guarantee to ensure your luggage is where you need it and whenever you need it.
While your luggage will be tracked and monitored by the ShipGo team, you’ll also be provided with a unique tracking ID so you can follow along with your bag’s process as it makes its way to your destination.
The service also tailors to the needs of those looking to bring sporting equipment on their vacation, with golf clubs, skis, and snowboards all offered as shippable items.
Domestic or International, It’s All the Same…
And if you happen to be traveling outside of the borders, shipping your luggage ahead is still an option! In fact, ShipGo services 180 countries and territories and will handle all customs-related paperwork on your behalf.
You can even download ShipGo’s iOS app for seamless travel at your fingertips.
From start to finish, shipping luggage ahead with ShipGo is the best alternative to carrying, checking, and claiming baggage at the airport. And an added bonus? You won’t have to spend hundreds on airline baggage fees either!
With the recent uptick in airline mishandling rates, there’s never been a better time to start shipping your luggage ahead. So, are you ready to change the way you and your family travel? Get a free quote to ship your luggage or learn more about ShipGo today!
