Stories from the road

  • Careful handling from the store to the event

    Adaptation Floral Design is a full-service wedding and event florist in Atlanta, and their handmade and custom bouquets need careful handling. They were looking to expand their business but were looking for a reliable way on how to ship plants and flowers without hurting their budget. They heard about Roadie knew how to mail plants through the grapevine, and posted a Gig. Then another. Then another. In one day, they made nearly 150 deliveries with Roadie and look forward to making hundreds more in the coming year.

     

  • 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 Gig on a Thursday afternoon and by the end of the day Friday, Driver Jack was already on the way to fetch the succulents and bring them to Miami Beach.
