How does Local Delivery work?

We partnered with Roadie (a UPS Company) for fast, easy door-to-door pickup and delivery.

Sellers start the pickup process the same or next day after purchase for local delivery. Items should arrive within about 4 hours after shipped.

Sellers pack the item in a simple box -- yes, even a shoebox works

When the seller is ready, we’ll send a Roadie driver for contactless pickup

Tech delivered straight to your door within about 4 hours: 7 days a week, 9 AM to 9 PM

Buyer and seller split the costs

Sellers pay a flat $10 shipping fee (when ready to ship) and buyers pay the rest.

Buyers can expect to pay around $10, depending on location and distance.

When will my local delivery arrive?

The day after you buy it or sooner. Sellers have 24 hours to mark your item ready for pickup. A Roadie driver picks up the item and delivers to your door in 4 hours or less.

Pickups and deliveries are scheduled between 9am and 9pm.

How do I prepare my item for pickup?

1. Place the item in a solid, sturdy box -- we recommend a clean shoebox, an Amazon box, or any other box you have lying around.
2. Tape the box shut or place it in a bag. No shipping label needed.
3. Mark it ready for pickup. That’s it.

What is Roadie?

Roadie employs a nationwide community of pre-screened, verified drivers for fast, flexible delivery.

Each driver must pass a safety screening including DMV and background checks and maintain a minimum 4-star rating.

Roadie provides real-time tracking and confirmation for both pickup and delivery.
