  • The potted plants needed to go to Miami without stress

    Marco discovered his green thumb when he bought six succulent plants for his apartment in New York, and enjoyed tending to them every day. It was soothing and eased stress, and they made his place look spiffy. He was determined to bring his plants along when he moved to Miami Beach. However, he worried that the rest of his furniture and belongings on the long drive down the coast might crush the plants. He searched online for how to ship potted plants affordably and discovered Roadie. Marco posted a delivery on a Thursday afternoon and by the end of the day Friday, Jack was already on the way to fetch the succulents and bring them to Miami Beach.
