I'm driving to LA in two weeks and I'm only taking what I can fit in my Cherokee. To save space, I'm not gonna take my FBB fretted 5 with me in the car. Since I have a very nice Calzone flight case for it, I was thinking of just sending it by air cargo rather than paying UPS or FedEx Ground to do it. It'd be expensive, but my folks would be willing to help me out with the cost, and I think there'd be less chance of it being damaged. Presumably, I'd have my folks drop it off with United air cargo at O'Hare and then I'd pick it up at LAX, Orange County, or Ontario. I'd prefer to use United because we have a family friend who's fairly high up in the air freight division at UAL. Anyone ever done this before? Will it be worth my while, or should I just send it by FedEx Ground and hope for the best?
