Say Goodbye To Oversized Shipping Hassles

Packing peanuts, bubble wrap, and boxes — they’re all inescapable when you’re figuring out how to ship oversized items. And not only does it leave us feeling overwhelmed, it ends up costing a fortune. Before we started Roadie, we wondered if it was even possible to ship big, bulky items without burning a hole in your wallet.

That’s where Roadie comes in — we’re a faster, cheaper, easier way to ship out-of-the-box items across town or across the country. Whether it’s a desk you need to send to a client two states away, a set of golf clubs to a friend, or even a car tires from the auto shop over an hour away.

As the first on-the-way delivery network, Roadie makes it easy to figure out how to ship oversized packages without breaking the bank.

  • What Qualifies As An Oversized Item?

    Before you jump into learning how to ship bulky items, you might wonder whether your package is oversized in the first place. According to traditional shipping guidelines, carriers consider packages as oversized and require freight shipping when:

    • Items weigh more than 150 lbs
    • An item measures larger than 165 inches in length and girth
    • Packages are larger than 108 inches in length
    • Packages with a large size-to-weight ratio

    At Roadie, we don’t require measurements or weight when figuring out how to ship oversized items. Simply choose a general delivery size. And while some shipping companies have additional fees charged at point of sale, Roadie is a flat rate service with no hidden costs.

  • The Cheaper Way to Pack Bulky Items

    There’s no reason why packaging ends up being more expensive than shipping out-of-the-box stuff itself. Here at Roadie, we decided to take that out of the equation — and let you cargo go commando! Roadie Drivers know how to ship oversized items, and since they are already headed in the right direction, they can safely deliver your stuff door-to-door for less.

  • Add Insurance When Shipping Bulky Items

    Whether you’re shipping something valuable or sentimental, Roadie has you covered. Your Gig will automatically include $500 of insurance, and you have the option to purchase additional protection up to $10,000 through UPS Capital.

  • Next-Day Backyard Barbecue

    After his customer requested a fire pit delivery by the end of the week, Andy at S & S Fire Pits needed to find out how to ship bulky items quickly. The oversized fire pit wasn’t going to get from Atlanta to Tuscaloosa itself, so Andy posted a Gig. While on his way to Tuscaloosa, Jay checked the Roadie map and offered to deliver the fire pit the next day. The fire pit arrived on time, and instead of paying hundreds for heavy, bulky shipping with a usual carrier, Andy only paid $75 with Roadie.

  • Moving A Piano Across Town

    For Amber, playing the piano is more than just a hobby — it has been a pastime, an escape, and even a job. When she needed to move her prized piano across town, she trusted Roadie. And to her surprise, Driver Daniel knew how to ship oversized items and offered to help out with his father, Señor Flores, that same day. Señor Flores couldn’t speak English, but Amber could tell by his body language that he wanted to play. Because she knew a little Spanish, Amber offered to let him play and was pleasantly surprised by Señor Flores talent. They spent the next hour alternating on the piano and sharing some happy moments as part of a shipping community they didn't know existed before their first Gig.
