Door-to-Door Luggage Delivery Service Provides Peace of Mind for Thanksgiving Air Travel
BOSTON, November 14, 2007 – Luggage Forward, the leading provider of door-to-door luggage and sports equipment delivery to more than 200 countries and territories, is poised to relieve the angst and stress of thousands of airline passengers during the upcoming U.S. holiday travel season by guaranteeing on-time arrival of clients’ bags anywhere in the country.
According to the Air Transport Association, roughly 27 million passengers will fly during a 12 day period beginning November 16th on planes that are about 90 percent full. As these passengers face an increasing number of obstacles at airports, particularly during peak travel times, Luggage Forward provides a luggage solution that puts convenience back in air travel.
Luggage Forward’s service allows passengers to avoid carrying luggage or sports equipment to and from the airport, bypass long check-in lines, not pay excess baggage fees, eliminate the possibility of the airline losing luggage, skip the wait at baggage claim and have their luggage waiting for them at any destination in the country, guaranteed.
“Our on-time guarantee is particularly valuable to passengers with complicated travel itineraries,” said Zeke Adkins, co-founder of Luggage Forward. “Our clients are able to eliminate the anxiety associated with multiple connections by using Luggage Forward’s service. They need only worry about themselves as they connect flights, not whether their luggage has made it with them on the next leg of their journey.”
According to Department of Transportation statistics, more than 3.4 million bags were mishandled by domestic airlines in the first nine months of 2007, an increase of 17 percent from the same period in 2006. By contrast, Luggage Forward’s impeccable reliability record allows the company to immediately reimburse clients for expenses up to $500 per late arriving bag in the rare case that a domestic shipment is delayed.
Luggage Forward has four guaranteed services for the first leg of a domestic trip, which provide next day, second day, third day and fifth day delivery. These four services, complimented by an additional seven day return delivery service, are designed to provide an option to fit every itinerary and budget. The cost of shipping one bag starts around $50 while nearly half of domestic bookings made with Luggage Forward have an average shipment price of less than $100 per bag.
Continuous advancements in both technology and service, such as this unique on-time guarantee, allow Luggage Forward to maintain its position as the premier provider of luggage and sports equipment delivery services. Luggage Forward has created an uncommonly rich travel experience for the company’s rapidly growing client base by combining technological efficiencies, the transparency of real-time access to pricing information and first class customer service.
