Ship Sticks Provides Ultimate Golf Club Shipping Service for Traveling Golfers

Company Has Achieved Triple Digit Growth Since 2011

(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) – For traveling golfers, nothing is more important than making sure their clubs arrive safely at their destination. Ship Sticks, a golf bag shipping company that provides door-to-door service, has achieved triple digit growth in less than a year because avid golfers have quickly seen the value in high-service, convenient and affordable transport of golf clubs.

Ship Sticks is the only shipping service that competes on the three most important factors in golf club shipping – service, convenience and cost.

Founded in 2011, Ship Sticks was created to provide a specialized, unmatched shipping service for golf clubs. Through its easy-to-use online service, the company ensures a seamless pickup and delivery of clubs from the home or golf club directly to a hotel or desired travel destination.

“As avid golfers, we know firsthand that traveling with golf clubs is the most cumbersome part of the golf travel experience,” said Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks. “However, using your own clubs is vital to the success and enjoyment of the round. Ship Sticks provides an affordable and valuable solution for golfers to transport their clubs from home to any golf destination around the world.”

Every Ship Sticks order includes baseline insurance of $1,000, which is 10 times the average insurance rate of other shipping services. Golfers may add up to $3,500 supplemental insurance for any single bag. In addition, Ship Sticks will offer a $200 credit if golf club shipments do not arrive before scheduled tee times.

Ship Sticks works with leading golf resorts such as Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch, Erin Hills Golf Resort, Streamsong Resort and PGA National Resort & Spa, and has set up customized shipping accounts for more than 650 private and public golf facilities across the U.S. The company’s easy-to-use technology is implemented into the facility’s existing website and allows golfers and club professionals to manage the complete shipping process online. Ship Sticks supplies shipping boxes for its customers and affiliate golf clubs and personally tracks each step of the shipment so both the club professional and golfer know when to expect the clubs at the final destination.

Through its partnerships with major logistics providers, Ship Sticks offers the most competitive pricing without compromising service. For example, shipping golf clubs from New York City to Palm Beach, Fla., or from Scottsdale, Ariz., to New York City, with $1,000 insurance is significantly more affordable with Ship Sticks when compared to FedEx or UPS.

Ship Sticks will be participating in the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., from Jan. 24-26, 2013 as an exhibitor in booth No. 2559.
