I am moving to Clearwater from Chicago in October. I am looking to pack up all clothes and any items that will fit into boxes and have them sent out when I leave. Has anybody used fedex or ups air cargo services? Is there any other companies or airlines out there that would be reliable? Any help would be much appreciated

I've heard of people sending Stuff via USPS/PP FedEx/Ground UPS/Ground. Figure about $1/pound Send it by Air the dollars go up Huge.

There are pods that alot of people use, they seem to work, much cheaper then shipping by 'mail'.

palletize your stuff (check for height limitations) Air may have dimension limits as well.
since we didn't get the crate back we took a pallet, ran a rim around the edge, and enclosed the personal effects inside a particle board enclosure. rented a stapler air gun and a metal banding machine (cheap) and you're gone.

call a local truck with a pallet jack and you're on to the airport. after labelling inside and out, of course.
