  • How Do I Know What Size My Parcel Is?

    Figuring out whether your stuff classifies as oversized is no easy task. That’s why we’ve listed out how to determine the size of your items if you choose to send with a traditional carrier. But remember, unlike them, Roadie doesn’t require the exact dimensions or weight of your item to post a Gig. Here’s what you’ll need to measure for an understanding of large item shipping costs:

    • Overall Size (Length + 2x Width + 2x Height)
    • Total Length
    • Total Girth (2x Width + 2x Height)
    • Total Weight

    According to traditional shipping companies, you’ll need to use freight services if a package exceeds the following limits:

    • Packages are over 150 lbs
    • Packages measure more than 165 inches in length and girth combined
    • Packages measure more than 108 inches in length

    Roadie takes all this out of the equation. Just tell us the size of your item and where it needs to go.

  • Compare Large Item Shipping Costs in Seconds

    Want to know how much it’ll cost to send something oversized without the hassle of measuring it? Use the Roadie Shipping Calculator to compare large item shipping costs from top carriers all in one place.

  • How Do Other Companies Determine Large Package Shipping Costs?

    While traditional courier services or shipping companies provide estimates, oftentimes you won’t know the total fees that apply until checkout. Most often, they’ll charge you based on the overall size, billable weight, and handling surcharges.

    Finding the cheapest way to ship large items get complicated quickly. That’s why we created the Roadie Shipping Calculator to make it easier to compare large item shipping costs. Learn more about sending with Roadie here, and get a free quote here.

  • Door-to-Door Delivery for Shipping Large Items

    Most people will tell you that the safety of your bulky item comes down to how you package it — the boxes, the bubble wrap, and even the labels. However, your stuff will still bounce from truck to truck when you ship with a traditional carrier. Almost always, your large items could be dropped, thrown, shook, or rattled. When dozens of people handle your stuff, it never seems like each of them will handle it with care.

    Here at Roadie, we’ll connect you with Drivers that can easily tuck your bulky items into the back of their truck and hand deliver it door-to-door. Plus, we automatically include $500 of insurance with the option to buy more protection up to $10,000. Learn more about shipping large items with Roadie here.

  • Bye Bye Bunk Beds

    When her children had grown up and moved out, Melissa gave their bunk beds to her cousin who has two small boys. The tough part was getting the bunk beds from Florida to New York and skipping any outrageous large item shipping costs. Traditional shipping companies quoted Melissa an outrageously high price for the 1,300-mile trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Buffalo, so she turned to Roadie for a lower price. Roadie Eric let Melissa know he was heading up the East Coast in his pickup truck and could deliver the bunk beds for her. Melissa ended up saving hundreds of dollars and made two little boys very happy.

  • Two Tables to Tom

    After getting a new job in San Francisco, Elizabeth decided she wanted to redecorate her apartment. Before she got started, Elizabeth sold two tables on Craigslist to the buyer Tom.
