If you're tired of giving the airlines extra money to carry your luggage, you might think about shipping your bags through a delivery service.

You might have to shop around to make it less expensive than paying the airlines, but if you want to take a stand on principle: it might be worth looking into delivery. 

Some people say shipping your stuff early can also ease the stress the day you leave on your trip. Your luggage is already on the way. 

The number of companies offering a delivery service focusing on luggage is growing.

Here are some fast facts about that service; 

  • You can get your items, even bulky things like golf clubs, delivered door-to-door.

  • You can choose the delivery time frame that works best for you, from overnight express to basic shipping.  

  • The more flexible you are on shipping dates, the more money you might save.

  • Insurance coverage is available, some policies can go up to $10,000.
