Why choose Roadie for heavy item delivery

A treadmill, that vintage pool table you just scored on eBay, the dresser your mom gave you for your sweet new studio apartment  — Roadie has hauled it all when it comes to heavy item delivery. When you’re shipping heavy items with Roadie, there’s no need to rent a special vehicle or pay extra fees. Roadie’s door-to-door service means your stuff is in good hands the whole way. Most companies that specialize in shipping heavy items tack on big fees for things that weigh more than 150 pounds. But here at Roadie, we don’t. We’ll find a driver with a spacious vehicle, who is heading where your stuff needs to go.

And there’s no guessing when your heavy item delivery will arrive at its destination. With real-time tracking, you can watch your stuff go from pickup to drop-off on any device.

No packaging required when shipping heavy items

No need for packing blankets, cargo shipment containers, or bubble wrap when you are shipping heavy items with us! Though if your item is fragile, we certainly recommend it. Your Roadie driver is the only one handling your things, so there’s no wasteful packaging or bouncing from truck to truck.

Stories from road

  • From the Big Apple to La La Land

    Scott had been working on movie sets in Los Angeles for most of last year, scooting from set to set in his Vespa. Though he moved to New York after his work ended, his beloved Vespa was stranded in La La Land. Coming to the rescue, a pal in San Francisco offered to house it for him — but that was 375 miles away.

    Scott looked into shipping heavy items with another company and had a miserable experience — too much money, too much time, and frankly too much headache with a heavy item courier. Then he saw Roadie mentioned in his social media feed, and two days later Roadie Driver Tim happened to be headed to San Francisco. Last we heard, the Vespa was enjoying stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

  • One hour delivery for iron mirrors

    Karen scored two iron frame mirrors at a warehouse furniture sale that would complete a sleek new look in her living room. But how would she get them to her home 36 miles away? The seller knew that Roadie would be perfect for shipping heavy items. Karen posted a Gig, and within the hour Roadie Driver Xavier picked up and delivered the mirrors door to door.

  • Same-day delivery for this college dresser

    The dorm rooms at Tufts College had built-in dressers for Graeme’s clothes, but when the sophomore moved into the Zeta Psi fraternity house, he needed some new storage for his fraternity T-shirts and colorful chinos. His mom offered up an extra dresser from home in New York City, with a catch – Graeme had to find a way to get it to campus. After a quick Google search for a heavy item courier or heavy item delivery, Graeme found Roadie and his mom posted a Gig. The dresser is now fully stocked with Zeta Psi and Tufts apparel, and Graeme isn’t nervous at all about how well the dresser will fare in the “frat castle.” Nobody ever sets a beer or plate of pizza on it. Never.
