Maybe it was the heart of your home, your go-to workspace, or the handmade piece that took you weeks to carve. Either way, you need to ship your table — and you want to ship it for less.
Yes, we know you dread the very thought of shipping. We don’t blame you! That’s why our team is here to make it easier for you.
Lots of stuff can be sent with a postage stamp, but for something as heavy and huge as a table, it gets expensive quickly if you’re not careful. With a usual carrier, shipping a table costs anywhere from $200 – $600 depending on how far you need to move it.
Why spend a small fortune on shipping furniture when you can get door-to-door delivery cheaper and easier? That’s where we come in.
Here are tips on how to ship your table for less with Roadie:
1. Measure the Table
Our Drivers have everything from sedans to box trucks, so Drivers will need to know the size of your table before they can commit to delivering it. Measure the dimensions of your table and post it in the Gig description, so only Drivers who can handle your furniture delivery will offer to take it.
2. Protect Your Furniture
Packing peanuts and boxes aren’t required to send with Roadie, but it never hurts to wrap your table in a blanket and bubble wrap for a little extra coverage. Plus, we automatically insure your stuff up to $500 and offer additional coverage up to $10,000.
3. Be Clear About Delivery Expectations
Tell your Drivers about the conditions of the pick up and drop off: Is there parking? Will you need help moving the table? Do they need bungee cables? All of these details should be listed in your Gig description.
And remember, Roadie Drivers aren’t movers, but most are willing to help. Our pricing model is simple, but if your delivery needs a little extra love, we made it easy to sweeten the deal— just in case you need more muscle, more hustle, or more flexibility.
