We send gifts same-day, next day, on weekends, and even on Christmas without any extra charges. Many couriers or traditional shipping companies often increase their prices around the holidays, as they know they’ll get an influx of last-minute orders. Because Roadie taps into extra space in cars already going the right direction, we’re the cheapest holiday shipping option compared to other traditional couriers when you’re sending out-of-the-box items or last-minute gifts.
The cheapest holiday shipping for oversized gifts
Holiday shipping prices can skyrocket once you start sending heavy, bulky, or oversized items with traditional shipping companies or freight services. It’s more complicated to handle bigger items, which is why freight companies get away with charging outrageous prices. Because drivers on Roadie’s platform have extra space in their car to give your stuff a lift, they can hand deliver gifts door-to-door while offering some of the cheapest holiday shipping prices.
Last-minute, cheap gift delivery
We’ve all been there. You buy a gift at the last minute and miss the shipping deadline. And then you feel awful, knowing that your gift won’t arrive in time for Christmas. But there’s always someone driving somewhere, especially around the holidays. So even if you miss the traditional shipping deadlines, there’s always Roadie for last minute, cheap gift delivery.

Every year, Jimmy sends his family cookies a few days before Christmas. Oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, and sugar — you name it, all the favorites are there. It’s a time-honored tradition passed down from generation to generation. However this past year, he forgot to order cookies in time for delivery. He was scrambling to find a cheap gift delivery provider when he found Roadie. After ordering five cookie tins from the bakery, Jimmy posted a Gig. And within 90 minutes, each of his family members were surprised with something sweet at their doors.
