Shipping luggage

Does anyone have any experience with shipping luggage from Milan to home rather than taking it to the airport and checking it? I am changing airlines and tickets when departing Milan, flying through Heathrow and then back to California, and am concerned about complications of checking luggage. I think I'd rather ship it, but would like to hear if that is a practical alternative. Thanks!

EXPENSIVE. Proably not worth the hassle and $$. Unless you have unlimited funds and budget for this...I wouldn't recommend. I know it's not something I can afford - I'd rather spend my money on food and entrance fees than sending my luggage home!
