Default Pack Your Bags

Hey, everyone! I have a client that is flying me to New Hampshire for a job. I am going to bring some supplies in my checked bag, like roller cage, brushes, etc. I might want to bring some universal tints along. Do you think I can put some quantity in smaller bottles and put them in my bag?

I highly doubt it. If she's flying you in, she'll have no problem splurging for a few supplies when you get there.

Hmm... so I can bring alcohol if it is below 140 proof in my bag, if I bring human remains I have to carry it on.......

Not many places carry bottle of tint.Universal tint is not flammable so.....

Usually if I need tint, the guys at the paint store will put some in a cup. But sometimes they won't, like when I did a job in St.Thomas, that guy would not give me anything, even when I said I would buy the paint, just don't put the tint in it.....separate it.....

You can't bring liquids, not even water unless it is purchased beyond the check point. Besides the hassle isn't worth it.

Can you not mail whatever you need before you get there? Seems easier to me.

For some reason, they wouldn't let me on with a cordless drill, even though it's not a liquid.

I think fauxlynn talked about putting those things in checked bags, in which case it would be fine.

These days, the PO always asks if you're mailing something, "fragile, liquid, perishable, or potentially hazardous". I've never needed to answer in the affirmative, so I don't know what happens if you say yes.
