Here for our next installment for how to earn some extra cash on the side is with an app called Roadie. We will be going over what Roadie is, how you can sign up, how you can earn money with Roadie, and what you can expect to earn.
What Is Roadie?
Roadie is a crowdsourced delivery service that focuses mostly on long distance deliveries. They connect drivers with people who need items shipped, and these normally aren’t local deliveries. Sometimes you will need to drive across the country to make a delivery!
You can sign up on their website, Roadie.com, or via their iOS or Android app. It’s used to deliver basically anything from furniture to cupcakes and even pets!
How Much Can You Earn With Roadie?
They show that you can earn up to $60 for local deliveries and up to $650 for cross country deliveries! It all depends on the distance and the item that is being shipped.
Are There Any Requirements For Drivers?
Yes, there are a few requirements that you must follow to be a driver at Roadie. You must be at least 18 years old, have a drivers license, have a social security number, and keep at least a 4-star rating on their website (this is given to you by the people you do deliveries for). Additionally, you will need insurance, and some states may require you to have commercial auto insurance.
Finally, there are a few additional restrictions, your car must be smoke and odor free and not contain excess amounts of pet dandruff.
Is Roadie a Viable Way To Earn Extra Income?
If you are already doing any type of ridesharing (Uber, Lyft, Postmates, etc) this could be a great addition to the collection. The more opportunities for deliveries the less downtime you have and the more money you’re able to earn. The cool part about Roadie is that you can do long haul deliveries, and even combine multiple deliveries in one to increase your earnings. It could be a great way to earn some extra money and travel across the US at the same time :)!
