Ship heavy items at the tap of an app
Seriously, it takes less than a minute. Roadie Drivers only need to know a few key pieces of information to deliver your items door-to-door — like where it needs to go, the item size, and delivery deadlines. After you create an account, you can schedule a delivery online or on your phone. We’ll match you with a Driver who can meet your pickup and delivery specifications.
Don’t worry about packaging heavy items
Unlike traditional shipping companies, Roadie doesn’t load and unload your items several times during the trip. That‘s why when you’re figuring out how to ship heavy items with the other guys, they require robust packaging. It helps them minimize breakage and damage on those inevitable bumps and thumps. Roadie Drivers carefully handle your stuff from door to door, so you don’t need all those wasteful boxes, packing peanuts and bubble wrap.
Why not just mail heavy packages?
The U.S. Postal Service has a 70-pound weight limit for Priority Mail and Media Mail, and the other guys charge hundreds of dollars for overweight goods. Let Roadie show you how to ship heavy packages the easier, faster, cheaper way.
What about a freight company? Don’t they know how to ship heavy items?
Dedicated freight haulers and less-than-truckload carriers cater to companies that ship heavy items frequently. They aren’t in the business of one-off shipments like yours because they don’t make money that way. Here’s the deal with finding out how to ship heavy items with freight companies:
- It may take weeks before they can find a spot for your stuff
- Expect to pay many hundreds of dollars
- You have to find a way to get your stuff to their freight terminal
- You may have to fill out cumbersome paperwork
Instead, you could create a Gig, get door-to-door delivery, and save a couple hundred bucks.
