A buyer in Rancho Mirage, CA, purchased 33 boxes of very valuable – and very delicate – fig tree blossoms from a nursery in Lake Mary, FL. The baby fig trees would travel 2,415 miles, and they needed extremely gentle handling. The buyer was sure the plant shipping costs would be through the roof, but they found Roadie and posted a Gig. The cost of shipping plants with Roadie? Only $556.
Roadie Driver Lorie was the right woman for the job. She picked up the 33 boxes, which contained 25 pounds of fig tree blossoms each, and took a cross-country road trip that spanned five days. Just to be safe, the sender insured them for $5,940 through additional protection Roadie offers through our partner, UPS Capital. The fig tree blossoms were delivered in perfect shape, and are happily putting down new roots in sunny California.
