Default Luggage carriers

We are going to be flying to LAx from Charlotte,NC with a change of planes in ATL.We heard about luggage shippers that take your luggage from your house to the ship whereby you don't have as much chance of losing it.Anyone have any experience with it?

I have not heard of this, unless they mean mailing it. I have heard of people mailing stuff home, when they bought to much stuff.

It sounds good. Do you have a source, so that you can get the info. If you find something, then come back and share with all of us.

Here ia one company that does this. http://www.luggagefree.com/

The procedures ....

A typical shipment usually follows our standard chain of events:

- You call us or log on to go directly to our order page and place your order. We can be at your home within 24 hours nationwide and within only six hours in New York City. After your order is placed, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that your order has been initiated.

- On the day of pick-up our agent arrives at your home and wraps each of the bags in our protective covering, protecting the bags from dirt, damage, and theft, and transfers them to the nearest airport. The bags are then placed in our forward freight system, where they are delivered to your destination via our airborne infrastructure.

- Once the bags have landed, our local agent picks them up at the airport. If the shipment is international, our agent clears your bags through customs, and then transfers them to the ultimate destination address.

- You arrive at your hotel, villa, home, or other destination, refreshed from your hassle free travel experience, where you are met by your luggage waiting for you.

- For the return trip, the process is reversed.

- Approximately two weeks after the service is complete, we bill the credit card number on file for the amount of service.

The cost .....

Figure on $177 for a 50 pound bag going by domestic air each way.

Wow,
For that kind of money, I'd take my chances and just fly with my own luggage, have had good luck with nothing getting lost.

In all my years of flying I never had a lost bag .... until our last cruise.

On the way back we went through SFO to get to LAS. My bags went to Hawaii.

Got them the next day.

At least it was on the way home and not to Europe.
