do you ship/send luggage or "stuff" ahead to your vacation destination?

Jump to last reply

Just saw an article regarding the rise in the number of travelers opting to ship luggage and other stuff to or from vacation destinations. We head to Maui every winter and I've often thought about shipping stuff ahead so we don't have as much to lug to the airport and check through, then shipping purchases and gifts back home before we leave.

Has anyone used one of those luggage shipping services (or a commercial shipper or USPS) to do this? How much of a hassle is it? Just wondering if it would be worth trying. Thanks!
