The OP said she would be schlepping a large bag.

I would advise a taxi. Door-to-door service. Plus the driver should handle the bag in and out of the trunk of the car as a part of the standard tipped service.

Slightly OT, but one of the reasons we tip for these services was that passengers (who are so inclined) should be able to avoid handling their bags at any point -- porter at the airport, driver to the end destination, bellhop at the hotel. I actually hosted a woman from Asia who traveled with 10 suitcases, and paying/ tipping for bag handling was not only a luxury, it was a necessity.
