New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
Air travel during this year's summer season has been brisk, particularly among families. AAA estimates that 4.7 million Americans traveled by airplane during the week of Fourth of July alone. As a result, a luggage shipping company headquartered in New York City has seen steady interest from families who are choosing to ship items and luggage ahead before they travel.
Luggage Free specializes in door-to-door shipping of luggage, equipment, bags and anything else travelers opt not to carry on trips. With the ability to send bags, cribs, formula and car seats ahead to any destination in the world, parents are taking advantage of the service in increasing numbers.
"Families are seeing great value in what we offer," said Jeff Boyd, president of Luggage Free.
"They can ship excess items ahead of time and free up their hands, which allows them to better tend to their children during travel," he added.
Founded in 2002, Luggage Free has experienced consistent growth year-after-year due to increased baggage restrictions imposed by airlines and government agencies.
The popularity of the service has not been limited to families, however. Celebrities, athletes, international tourists and leisure travelers all have contributed to the company's growth, though Boyd emphasized the strength within the family travel market.
"Educating families about our service is critical. Out of pure necessity, families with small children often pack more than the average traveler and we are an obvious solution," he said.
Since its inception, the company has continued to add to its services, which include wrapping and protecting luggage, time-sensitive retrievals and completion of all airway bills on the behalf of customers.
Luggage Free anticipates these types of features, along with its other services, will entice more families to travel by air in the future.
"A lot of families are conscious of the added stress flying with small children brings," noted Boyd.
He concluded, "We eliminate a lot of these concerns and as a result, we expect strong sales to continue from the family market in the foreseeable future."
