Back in March when everything shut down because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we didn’t know what the future held. During that time, we had all sports cancelled. Truth be told, we never knew how much we missed sports until it was taken away. Eventually, they all came back with the NBA, NHL and MLS playing in a bubble. College football and NFL are in the midst of their season with some players here and there testing positive for Covid-19. Despite all of that, I’m just happy to have football back even though there are limited to no fans allowed. During these times, we miss hanging out with friends watching the football game. There are ways to still connect with them by sending them things on game day. With Roadie, I’m able to send things instead of bringing some food like people do when watching the game together.
How Does Roadie Work?
To send things via Roadie, first thing you need to do is sign up for the sender account. If you’re someone that’s looking for some extra cash, you can sign up as a driver as well. When you sign up to have something to be delivered, you create a delivery. The information is simple, just add what kind of item you will be sending. The categories vary from food, clothing and automotive parts to furniture, flowers, and electronics. Afterwards, you choose the size of the item you want picked up to they know what kind of vehicle to send. You can send something small enough to fit in a shoebox or huge that ask a pickup truck will be needed. The next sections ask how many items an id it’s longer than four feet or greater than 50 pounds.
The final information needed are more details to help the driver. You have the option to include the picture of what you’re sending. When finished, you can save and continue to the pickup section. You enter the pickup location and any information the driver needs to know. If they need to go to the store and get it, just add that information like the store number. You will need to add the business or person name from where the stuff is being picked up. You can include an email address, but it’s optional and adds the phone number. Last, but not least add the pickup time and it can be ASAP or a scheduled time. After you save and continue, you enter the address to where the items are being sent. If there are any special instructions needed, just add it in the next section.
Afterwards, you enter that person’s information or business name along with their phone number. You will also have the option of entering an email address also. If you require a signature, just check the box below the information given. The delivery information will be last as to when the deadline to deliver the material. When you’re finished, just enter the payment information along with a tip if you want. They also offer insurance covered, which is great if you’re sending something valuable. When entering your payment details the breakdown of your transaction is provided. When finished, it gives you the information about your total order.
With this Covid pandemic, you really don’t do the things you’ve been accustomed to anymore. One of my friends, Eric has used this time to establish himself a great business. It’s called Mr. Boss Haul. They haul pretty much anything you need for the entire North Georgia area. He’s busy doing that all the time, while working a full-time job plus being a father and husband. On the weekends, I’m usually doing my blog work so we’re busy. To celebrate his Falcons picking up the win over Thursday night against the Panthers, a shirt and hat was sent. He’s a die-hard Falcons fan while I’ll always represent the Eagles so there is some trash talk involved. At the end of the day, it’s all good and we’re respectful about it. The next time, I’ll probably send some food because we both like to eat also.
Why Use Roadie?
We all have tried something for the first time and things didn’t work out like we wanted them. This wasn’t the case with Roadie as the times were met. The time that was given to pick up was met by an hour. The drivers were courteous, picked up my package and they were on their way. When they left, I received an email saying the package was picked and the time the person receiving the gift should receive it. The package arrived about an hour before they were to deliver it with no issues. Seeing how easy it is to use Roadie, I’ll be using it again. The best thing about the experience is that is doesn’t cost a lot to send the items. Whether you’re sending something to someone far or near, Roadie is the place to use.
The great thing about Roadie also is that you can send anything imaginable no matter how big or small it is. If you were to use Roadie, who would you send something to? What is something you would send a friend or family member? Have you tried Roadie? If not, what are you waiting for? Once you tried Roadie, you will not hesitate to try it again.
