Take the “Lug” Out of Luggage

The UPS Store ® located at 10940 SW Barnes Rd., Peterkort Towne Square can ease air travelers’ burdens this summer with three luggage shipping alternatives, including a new luggage box that takes the place of a suitcase, to help reduce hassles of long lines, security searches and increasing baggage fees.

“Not having to carry a suitcase while traveling is a great convenience. Even better is luggage awaiting your arrival at a destination or hotel,” said Tim Kimble, The UPS Store owner. “You can ship your luggage as is; place it in a box for shipment, or purchase a luggage box, eliminating the need for a suitcase altogether.”

When shipped UPS Ground service, the luggage box is competitively priced with the airlines’ baggage fees, especially when compared to the major airlines. Additionally, members of the Automobile Association of America (AAA) can receive a 15% discount off the full retail price on eligible products and services and 5% off domestic UPS shipping costs.

The luggage box comes in two sizes, large and small; has a sturdy handle for easy carrying, and is made of recyclable corrugate. Because it weighs less than an empty suitcase, packing directly into the box can help lower shipping costs. Travelers also can include packaging tape and a return UPS shipping label for use when returning home.

Virtue of the Month: Justice

“Practicing Justice is being fair in everything you do. It is seeing with your own eyes and not judging something or someone by what other people tell you.” Linda Kavelin Popov.

The Practice of Justice: I avoid gossiping and backbiting. I refuse to prejudge; I see people as individuals. I make amends instead of excuses. I share fairly with others. I stand up for the right of others and myself. “ Justice helps me think for myself.”
