Any tips for mailing luggage? by mylomook on 10 June 2010 7:13am
 
Hello all,

I have been living in South Korea for a litle over a year now and I am planning on heading back to the states in September. However, I was hoping to do some traveling around Asia before I leave.

The problem is I have two big suitcases full of stuff and I don't know what would be the best way to send them home. The suitcases were lent to me so I can't just abandon them, but it wouldn't really be possible for me to drag them around with me.

What are your suggestions?

Thanks

Because of airport security these days I think you will either have to mail them back or just abandon them. It might be cheaper to just give them away and buy a new set.

OH! I just read that the suitcases are full of stuff, in years gone by if you asked someone nicely at the airport to check any extra bags you had in their luggage allowance, they did. {I did it many times} But in this day and age, no one in their right mind would accept responsibility of luggage owned by a complete stranger. Pack your things into cardboard boxes, mail them, loose the luggage. Happy travels.

Be sure to stick a stamp on it!

If the suitcases were mine I would abandon them, but they were lent to me by someone and they are expecting to get them back.

Ship them back home. It may take a few weeks but I believe it is cheaper.

Ship Home. No other option, in my personal opinion.
