The stuff that you describe that this gent does though, I'm thinking all of that is what the skycaps usually do curbside anyway? or am I missing something? Obviously knocking down the case count is not SOP but other than that...?

The production always hire a trusted courier service. They come to my home pick up my gear, take it to there shipping place by LAX, put everything on a crate, wrap it up in that plastic wrap stuff so it all stays together and it's shipped to the production office of wherever I'm shooting.
This eliminates ANY responsibility on my part for the shipping. I don't even have to worry about tipping or anything (but I still usually do give the guy $20 that picks the stuff up just to make sure he takes good care of it).
I've done it this way going to everywhere from Venezuela to the Bahamas to North Carolina, to Arizona, etc. Never an issue and the gear has always showed up where it was suppose to be.
Plus, unlike shipping your gear on the plane WITH you, you can LOCK your cases when it's shipped by a courier. So there is no worries about sticky finger skycaps, TSA personnel or baggage handlers.
Just a thought...
