Let’s think. Does Dad like to go to sports and home improvement stores? If so, Lowes, Home Depot, and Sport Authority would be good. Does Dad spend time at the gym? New sneakers, workout clothes and a water bottle would be appreciated. Is Dad the corporate type? Then, how about a new shirt and tie or a coffee mug with a gift card to a local coffee shop this year. Or does Dad like going out to eat with his family?

Rather than trying to tie your surfboard to your roof or finding someone to transport it for you, or even worse purchasing a new one, ship it with Transit Systems!
All you need to do is bubble wrap and “box” your surfboard before we come to pick it up. You can purchase a new box, go on Craiglists and find a used box or you could telescope two boxes together. But remember it needs to be bubble wrapped and boxed. And this is a curbside residential pick up and delivery, which means we will pick it up outside your home and delivery it to your driveway or sidewalk at your apartment; our drivers do no bring it inside.
Make sure you plan ahead, but TSI does offer a pretty quick delivery. It should arrive within 5-7 business days. So if you want your surfboard for the Fourth of July, get a quote from us today!

To make your life a little easier, we put together some tips for finding a new pediatrician.
• Start by asking around. If you know people who live in the area you will be moving in to, ask them for recommendations. If you do not, try looking up reviews online or even try Facebook. Post a comment that you are looking for a new doctor in your new area and most people will comment if they know the area, especially when it has to do with kids. Make sure you communicate your perspective on medicine, meaning what type of doctor you are looking for.
• Availability is essential. Make sure that when you baby is sick they can get you in the day of and even within a few hours of when you called. Read More
