Forget shipping lines and expensive courier services. With our personalized, door-to-door pickup and delivery service, Roadie is the easiest, often the cheapest way to get your stuff where it’s going. After scheduling a delivery, you’ll be matched with a pre-qualified Driver who can meet your pickup and delivery specifications.
Spend less time on the road
With our easy-to-use mobile and web apps, you can schedule a delivery in less than a minute. Roadie Drivers can quickly deliver anything, so there’s no need to run errands or sit in traffic yourself — even if you need something delivered last-minute. Simply tell us what you need to send, and we’ll handle the rest.
Cheaper than a courier
While we’re an app that delivers anything, we don’t charge an arm and a leg for it. Roadie offers transparency at every turn. That means no surprise handling fees and no upcharges for urgent or weekend delivery. Roadie determines the price primarily on size and distance, so sending an item across town costs as little as $12.
Send anything with peace of mind
We know safety and security are top priorities when using a pickup and delivery service. That’s why we automatically include $500 insurance on each Gig, and Senders have the option to purchase up to $10,000 in additional protection. Roadie partners with UPS Capital® to give you peace of mind that your items are covered from pickup to delivery.
Real-time updates and delivery confirmations
You care about your stuff, and so do we. Unlike traditional shipping companies, Roadie lets you send anything while tracking your Gig from pickup to delivery in real-time on any device. It’s just one more way we’re changing the way you ship.
Stories from the road
A new home for a lifelong friend
Over Thanksgiving, Chau’s friend in Florida passed away and left two Westies behind. Since no one could take care of them, they were taken to a kill shelter in Florida. Chau and his wife decided to rescue them, but they had no way to get them to Atlanta. While in New York, he thought of Roadie and posted a Gig. Within 48 hours, the Westie puppies were picked up and delivered safe and sound. Watch the story here.
A family antique passed from generation to generation
About 25 years ago, Michael made this rocking snail for his youngest daughter while undergoing cancer treatment. Michael pulled through and survived cancer, while the snail became a family legend that’s been passed down from grandchild to grandchild.
When the newest addition to the family came along in summer of 2016, it was time for the snail to make the trek from Oregon to Arizona. She chose Roadie’s pickup and delivery service over a traditional shipper because “you don’t know if they care, or if they’ll just throw your stuff around,” and she wanted to hand it to someone she could trust. The rocking snail arrived by the next morning to the family’s delight.
A girlfriend's California surprise
To surprise her boyfriend, Alexandra decided to send him a 9ft. surfboard for his birthday. But because they didn’t live in the same city, she needed an easy, affordable way to send it up the California coast — from Malibu to San Francisco 396 miles away — so she posted a Gig. Roadie delivered it in two days to the boyfriend’s delight and surprise — and Alexandra learned she could pretty much send anything through Roadie!
Pretty much, but we have a few exceptions. Many of our drivers have large trucks and vans, and they’re perfect for delivering hard-to-transport items that traditional shipping companies can’t handle. But remember, our drivers aren’t movers, so please make sure there’s someone at the pickup and delivery locations to do the heavy lifting.
Roadie connects people who want to send stuff with drivers. Once a Sender and Driver are connected, they can coordinate the most convenient place to meet, whether that’s at home, at work, or a nearby gas station.
Download our iOS or Android mobile app or visit app.roadie.com to send something. You can get an instant estimate in seconds, then follow the prompts to post your item, which we call a “Gig”. Roadie is faster and easier than traditional shipping options since you don’t have to worry about exact dimensions or weights. Just choose an approximate size and provide whatever details you think the driver will need to know to deliver your item. Once your item is posted, Roadie will select a Driver from a number of Verified Drivers in your area that are able to deliver. Once selected, Drivers will use the Roadie app to let you know when they’re on the way,
