Android Authority: Roadie is to UPS what Uber is to taxi cabs

Crowd-sourced product delivery service has arrived with the innovative company Roadie. The Uber-inspired, stuff-transport app has come into its own, allowing you to move anything from small packages to recliners to Labrador Retrievers across the city or throughout the states. It’s as easy as making a few taps on your phone.

To break it down pretty simply, the service uses the terminology “gig” to refer to any kind of delivery that you need done. You create a gig describing what kind of thing you need moved, note the item’s value, and select how large your item is from a list of pre-configured options. Then you post the gig, and Roadie will attempt to pair you up with a vetted driver who is already on the way to a similar location.
