Ship Sticks offers new luggage, ski and group shipping options

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Ship Sticks, the fast-growing golf bag shipping company, announced the addition of three new options to its expanding portfolio of travel solutions. Based on customer feedback, the company will now offer a luggage and ski shipping service as well as a new group shipping option for its golf bag pick-up and delivery service. All three shipping services, as well as the company's original white glove golf bag shipping solution, are available at the newly refreshed www.shipsticks.com.

"Ship Sticks is focused on creating and providing convenient, cost-effective solutions for serious golfers and travelers," said Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks. "Our mission is to eliminate the hassles and frustrations that so many consumers experience when they travel. These new shipping options mean our customers can spend less time waiting at the airport and more time enjoying their getaway."

Luggage and Ski Shipping
Similar to golf bag shipments, Ship Sticks will provide door-to-door white glove shipping for luggage, skis and snowboards from the home, office or other pick-up location directly to the final hotel or resort destination. Luggage, ski and snowboard shipments can be booked in conjunction with any golf bag shipment or reserved as a separate shipment. Ship Sticks will be launching a dedicated website for ski shipments, www.shipskis.com, in the coming weeks.

Ski and snowboard shipments range from $39 for one-way ground shipping (one set of skis or one snowboard) to $199 for overnight shipping (double skis or double snowboards). Ship Sticks has launched its expanded shipping service for skis and snowboards at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Mich., and Angel Fire Resort in Angel Fire, N.M., and plans to add other ski resorts in the coming months.

Group Shipments
With Ship Sticks' easy-to-use online system, groups can now complete just one form for multiple shipments to the same destination. All shipments in a group must have both the same origination and end points (for example, from the office to a golf resort), but every person within the group can select their own pick-up location and time, as well as their own speed of delivery.
