Delivering skis by courier

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I like to ask the peanut gallery about shipping skis.

 

Instead of bringing skis on the plane and hoping they make it to the destination.

 

I Was wondering if anyone has shipped skis by courier? what were your thoughts on those who did?

 

was the courier system more reliable and less likely you think u got any damage?

 

Is it possible to ship the item to the destination and pick up from the couriers pick up location

 

such as FedEX or Purolator, or would i have to have item shipped to hotel or place of accommodations?

 

thanks

As often noted, the S.E.A.R.C.H. function is your friend.

Sent my skis with FedEx from Denver to the hotel in Park City ... $30 I think for 3day road delivery ... waiting for me on arrival - far better than the plane trip back where they went missing despite me seeing them get loaded!!!!!

When I was in the fly fishing biz, I used to send customer's tackle to their lodges via UPS.  I would also provide return labels.  All this was for domestic shipping here in the States.  For international shipping, check with your preferred carrier.

 

Like ski gear, fishing tackle takes up a lot of space.  One can easily exceed an airline's weight limit.  Plus it can be less expensive to ship a box or two rather than paying additional luggage fees.
