How Roadie makes heavy shipping costs more affordable

Why would you shell out $700 to send a sofa that’s only worth $400? That doesn’t make sense to us. Traditional freight shippers and couriers usually charge outrageous heavy shipping rates to move oversized items short distances. So much so that you might as well rent a truck or a moving van for a day and do it yourself. But that’s complicated and takes too long.

Because your driver is already going where your stuff needs to go, Roadie’s heavy shipping rates beat them all. If you’re still not convinced, compare heavy shipping rates from top carriers with the Roadie Shipping Calculator.

How does heavy item shipping work with Roadie?

It couldn’t be simpler. Tells us about your item – size, weight, where it needs to go – and we instantly give you our heavy shipping rates. Post a Gig and get matched with a driver. They pick up your stuff and deliver it door-to-doorIf your items are unusually heavy or bulky, you’ll need to arrange extra hands to help load and unload at both ends of the trip.

Drivers on Roadie’s platform will gladly transport a few pieces of furniture, appliances, boxes of books, exercise equipment and more — the sorts of things that can fit into a spacious passenger vehicle or a pickup truck — for very reasonable heavy shipping costs.

Stories from the road

  • Chloe saved 75% in shipping costs

    Chloe needed help moving her bed, dresser, desk and a few boxes of personal items the 791 miles from Chicago to New York. She had three quotes from moving companies, and they charged heavy shipping rates of more than $1,000. She was stressing.

    A friend suggested Roadie, and Chloe was stunned that it was only $270 — 75% less than the heavy shipping costs with the other guys. Ben and his boyfriend were heading to a friend’s wedding in Washington, D.C., and rerouted through New York to help Chloe. Their black lab Cyrus kept an eye on Chloe’s things, which were covered with a tarp in the back of their pickup truck to keep them clean and dry. Ben and his boyfriend even carried Chloe’s things up to her new apartment for a little extra coin. Ben was thrilled to have some of his trip expenses paid for, and Chloe enjoyed the friendly and affordable door-to-door service.

    Shipping options for a college move
  • Pimp my ride, Roadie

    Justin made some upgrades on his Porsche and listed the unused stock parts for sale. A guy 300 miles away in South Carolina thought it was a sweet deal, and bought the sway bars and full exhaust and suspension systems. But with the traditional shippers, the heavy shipping costs were a fortune.

    Justin found Roadie and posted a delivery. He had four offers in less than 12 hours, and it was only going to cost $84! Justin was matched with a driver who was heading to Charleston for a work trip and delivered the parts to the buyer’s front door. That’s what we call high performance.
