What Can I and What Can't I Send Through the Roadie Platform?

  • Updated

From cupcakes to couches and everything in between, you can arrange to send pretty much anything through the Roadie Platform nationwide. Many Drivers have large trucks and vans, making it easy to send hard-to-transport and oversized items that traditional shipping companies can't handle.

Of course, there are some limits on what you can send – please see below for the list of items Senders are prohibited from sending via the Roadie platform. 


Senders may not and each Sender agrees they will not request delivery of Gigs that include any Prohibited Item listed below:

  • People.
  • Anything illegal including, without limitation, recreational drugs, and other contraband.
  • Hemp, hemp-derived cannabidiol (“CBD”) products of any type, including oils, tinctures, edible products, beverages, and cosmetic or personal care no matter THC level, and marijuana, marijuana-derived strains, and marijuana products (whether or not legal and no matter the THC level) (collectively, “CBD and Marijuana Products”).
  • Beer, wine, spirits, and other alcohol and liquor Products (“Alcohol Products”) and traditional cigarettes, cigars, and other any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human consumption, and E-cigarettes, vape pens, tank systems, and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (collectively “Tobacco and ENDS Products”) or any other product regulated and controlled by the United States Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).
