About Us

In 2009 Ken Kuhn, the founder and CEO of Ship Your Luggage, was traveling with his wife out to California on a bucket list trip to drive Rt. 1 north from San Jose, CA up to Mendocino County. Once they arrived at the airport to check their luggage they were asked to pay to bring their luggage along on the trip too. It was a foreign concept at the time, especially considering travelers don’t actually have the option to travel without luggage. Plus, it had always been an included as part of the trip before.
Now they were being asked to pay more without receiving any additional service. On the trip home Ken’s wife Nancy shared an idea. She said to him, “If people are going to have to pay to ship luggage with the airlines - why not just make a business that actually provides travelers with the service they’re paying for now anyway.”

Ship Your Luggage was created to provide affordable luggage shipping that is also a luxury service for travelers. In addition, we’ve expanded to include sports equipment and ship golf clubs, skis, bikes, and we even ship boxes for our travelers too. While this new and innovative way to travel was initially a response to the changes within the travel industry, Ship Your Luggage has taken it further by offering what is not just a service to travelers - but a premium service. One that alleviates some of the stress of travel...and adds a bit of style too.
