Avoid these problems with holiday shipping

There are bound to be a few hiccups around the holidays. With most traditional shipping companies, there’s no way to avoid these unexpected problems. But with Roadie, you can skirt around any pop-up issues with ease.

  • Bouncing From Truck to Truck With traditional carriers, your gift will most likely bounce from truck to airplane to truck. With Roadie, your driver will safely place your gift in their car and hand-deliver it door-to-door — making it easy to learn how to ship a Christmas present.
  • Unexpected Weather. Ground control to Major Tom, there may be some delays if your gifts’ flight approaches bad weather. Because people are always driving everywhere, Roadie delivers regardless of the day’s forecast.

Stories from the road

  • The Christmas gifts were delivered before takeoff

    Parth and her family had never spent Christmas outside of New York, but this year was different. They booked a trip to Ft. Lauderdale, hoping to spend the holiday in a warm bliss by the beach. But while in the terminal waiting for her flight, Parth realized she forgot the most important thing — the gifts. With less than two hours before departure, Parth didn’t have time to run home and catch her flight. She quickly searched online for how to ship a gift last minute and found Roadie.

    Parth posted a Gig and quickly connected with a Roadie named Freddy.  Because Freddy frequently drives to the airport, he had no problem picking up and delivering the gifts in time for Parth’s flight. That Christmas, you could catch her family on the beach with gifts in hand.

  • A surprise Christmas tree was in store

    Jones Wynn had a surprise in store for his mother Dana. While visiting her son in Atlanta, Dana found the perfect Christmas tree for her home in Villa Rica — over 40 miles away. Because Dana drove a sedan, she wasn’t able to bring the Christmas tree home with her. A couple days later, Jones decided to spring for the spruce for her and set up a Gig. Drivers on Roadie’s platform know how to ship a Christmas present, even if it’s a tree. That afternoon, Dana was delighted to find a Christmas tree at her door.
