What is Roadie?

We live in the era of Uber, Postmates, Turo, and Airbnb. With these, everyday people can turn their free time into a lucrative side gig and provide peer-to-peer services that rival entire industries. Roadie is no different and seeks to make transporting items (such as furniture, groceries, or even pets!) more comfortable than ever.

This “social driving” delivery platform turns commuters, parents, and college kids alike into cash-earning drivers. You can utilize the empty space in your vehicle–whether it’s a single passenger seat, a trunk, or even the entire bed of a truck–to help Roadie shippers move their individual items where they need to go.

How does Roadie work?

If you have a vehicle and have any sort of travel planned, you can drive for Roadie. Whether your daily commute takes you into the neighboring town/state or you’re driving cross-country over the summer, you can use your road time to earn cash as you go.

Roadie is perfect for those summer road trips, in particular. If you have stops planned in multiple states and have a little bit of extra time (for making deliveries), you could ideally fund your entire trip with the cash earned through the app. Considering that people can ship items as small as a shoebox or as big as a bed, you can utilize every inch of available space to help others move their special packages. And, of course, you’ll earn a nice chunk of change in the process.

What are the requirements to work for Roadie?

You must be 18 years of age, have a social security number, and valid U.S. driver’s license. Drivers must maintain a four-star rating based on sender feedback.

Reaching 55 U.S. cities with plans to expand to more; Roadie requires you have at least a car while some senders require a pickup – typically for more substantial items or perhaps multiple items need to be delivered.

Roadie App

This shipping app is available to download for free for iOS and Android.


We don’t see this as a gig that will bring in a part-time and indeed not a full-time income. Many of the gigs just don’t pay enough. But excellent opportunities can be found.

Just by having the Roadie app on, it might be worth it for you to select gigs that you feel are worth your time and effort – that is as long as you’re going that direction.
