The UPS StoreTheir big, bulky and awkward to carry. And then there is the additional airline fees for baggage to contend with (This could cost up to $50 to $200 each way); especially if they weigh more than 50 pounds. So what is the golfer to do with his golf clubs?
Plan a couple of days in advance and ship them by ground transportation and avoid the hassle. Either use a golf club case or bag made for shipping; or drop by a The UPS StoreThe UPS Store 5183 where they both pack and ship. Get a sturdy box that will ship both ways and is reusable.
Consider a trimmed down golf club set and a smaller bag. The lower the weight and size the less the cost to ship. Remember the weight of your golf bag makes a difference too. A light weight bag coupled with a cardboard box may be less expensive than that big fancy bag you like to use at home.
The time to ship to your destination by ground transportation may be surprisingly short. Take a look at this ground shipping map on the UPS web site. If you ship with The UPS Store they will automatically tell you how long ground and other air options will take and cost, and if there is a known weather condition that may delay your shipment. And of course they will give you an accurate price based on size and weight. And you do not have to home within a time window for pick up. The UPS Store does that for you.
