Ok so im moving june 16th officially but what i want to know is how i can go about shipping a box or 2 of sone personal stuff that i want to have with me. One box would contain my golf clubs and stuffed with whatever and the other might be a little smaller. What would be the most reliable way other than bringing on the flight with me since ill already check prbly 2 bags? Thanks everyone for the Help throughout my 2 years on here!

As long as they conform to the size and weight restrictions, USPS.

Yes, Definitely USPS if it is possible. Don't have to worry about customs and it's MUCH cheaper than UPS or Fedex.

You might save money shipping as extra baggage if you keep the weight under 50#.
You can check the post office rate here

Check with the airline for any weight or size restrictions but it shouldn't be an issue.

sometimes the airlines will not take boxes. sometimes it depends on the airport of departure, and sometimes it depends on the time of year. We no longer use boxes, but we often see boxes in the luggage claim, so I would check with your airline for specifics.

Keep in mind also, plastic crates or tubs tend to fare a lot better than cardboard boxes when processed through airline baggage handling. Use lots of tape and also elastic straps around it (because they'll probably cut open the tape for inspection).

Build a small crate or equal for standard manhandling and ship to Paradise Freight or VI Cargo in MIA (Medley) using UPS, Fedex, etc.
