Packing luggage

To ensure the safe delivery of your luggage, please ensure you follow proper packing procedures. You can check out our tips and even watch a video to see how it's done below: 

  • You can ship hard-sided suitcases, soft-sided suitcases, and duffel bags - We  recommend boxing them for extra protection
  • You can pack almost anything you'd normally pack to bring on a plane 
  • Ensure your items are nice and snug so they don't move around in your bag
  • Secure your bag shut with a lock or zip tie 

Pro-Tip

Sometimes when you ship your luggage the clothes are in your suitcase longer then when you check a bag so we recommend rolling clothes instead of folding to reduce wrinkles - trust us, it really does work.


Packing a box

You can either box your packed luggage or you can pack your items directly inside of a box. Boxes are great way to transport your belongings, and our carriers ship millions of boxes every day. Just be sure to use a  new double-sided corrugated box with no wear and tear.

Boxed luggage -

When shipping your luggage in a box, be sure to choose a box that is not much larger than the bag itself. This will help prevent it from moving around too much in transit! If your bag is heavy, we recommend using a heavy-duty box.

Boxed non-luggage 

To ensure the safe delivery of your box, it is very important to ensure proper packing guidelines are followed. You can check out our tips and even watch a video to see how it's done below: 

  • Any fragile or loose items must be packed separately in proper cushioning material
  • Fill any empty space with cushioning materials such as bubble wrap or clothing
  • Don't pack more than your box can handle - If it loses its "boxy" shape, it's overpacked

Looking for packing supplies?

We've found that Amazon has the best price on boxes, and they offer a really good value for an 18 pack of boxes and packing supplies that work well for our carry on luggage category.


Packing golf clubs

To ensure the safe delivery of your golf clubs, please ensure you follow proper packing procedures. You can check out our tips and even watch a video to see how it's done below:

  • Use protective padding around the heads 
  • Secure your case shut with a lock or zip tie
