Top 3 Tips in Buying High-Quality Luggage

Reunions, conferences, destination weddings, vacations, and business trips have one thing in common. All these events require you to travel. And what do you need when you travel? Luggage!

Since not all luggage is the same, you have to know what you should buy. Do you prefer a vintage style suitcase over standard black colored ones? Or do you like stylish bags with ornaments like tags, covers, and straps? Either way, you have to know how to choose a piece of quality luggage, regardless of style and color preferences.

Know that the right luggage piece can make commuting stress-free and seamless. On the other hand, the wrong one can be a source of problems during your trip.

So, how will you know that a luggage set can last for a long time? Here are some tips to help you sort this question out.

Choose the right bag fit for the occasion

There are countless of luggage and bags available. If you are in a hurry, you can get easily tempted to go for the “good enough” or “okay” one. Sadly, the “okay” bag turns out to be a bad choice for you. Buying and using the wrong bag means that you might end up overstuffing it or carrying a bulky one.

The perfect bag is mainly dependent on the duration of your trip and the items you are taking with you. If you frequently travel for different reasons and durations, it is helpful if you have a variety of suitcases to choose from.

If it is you are still starting to invest in a suitcase, it is practical to consider the type of trip you most frequently take. If you often travel for leisure, you can invest in a luxury vintage style suitcase for added style and character.

If most of your travels are for work and you usually stay in a place for three to five days, go for a medium-sized 23 or 24-inch luggage. If you frequently travel on weekends, an 18 or 20-inch hand-carry suitcase is most ideal for your needs.

Buy from companies that have excellent customer service

Never take customer service for granted. If you buy cheap suitcases from chain stores, you cannot expect much from their customer service.

Verify how long such a company has been in business and how they deal with customer complaints. Also, check if their CS reps are easily accessible. It would be beneficial if you have the company’s number where an actual person answers customer calls.

Never forget to check the guarantee that comes along with your luggage purchase

Since you will be investing in a piece of luggage, it is logical to know if the manufacturer offers a guarantee on how long their product will remain in good condition. The luggage should, at least, withstand the normal wear and tear of travel and storage.

If your luggage gets damaged, you can use the warranty for repair or replacement. And if you need to have the bad replaced, you can also use the same guarantee to get a replacement piece for free.

Conclusion

You have the final say when choosing the right luggage for your travels. And since you have the last word, you must observe due diligence in making sure that you are also protecting your interest as a buyer. Read, research, and ask questions. These will not only help you purchase the right luggage, but it will also make you a more knowledgeable and informed buyer.
