Why Choose GoShare for Craigslist Delivery?

You can get great deals on Chicago’s Craigslist! However, unlike buying from a store, the person you are purchasing from likely doesn’t have a delivery fleet available to drop off your new couch. And, if you don’t have a truck or a friend with a truck, you may be at a loss on how to get the piece home. 

Some people may try to hire a delivery driver from a Craigslist Ad. If you are buying your furniture on Craigslist, why not hire a service professional that way too? 

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to know how reliable individuals listing their delivery services will be and there is no insurance or guarantees if they damage your goods. Worse, some criminals and scammers use the platform to steal and defraud. One family in Georgia found themselves the victims of a Craigslist scam when thieves posing as movers drove off with a moving truck filled with the family’s possessions and stole everything they owned.

Tips and Hints for Shopping on Craigslist Chicago

Whether you are looking for a great deal or a unique antique, Craigslist Chicago is a fantastic resource. Sites like Craigslist and apps like OfferUp create peer-to-peer selling environments. What does peer-to-peer mean? It means that on Craigslist, individuals can list and sell their items directly to other individuals. 

Individuals can list used pieces, handmade items, antiques, estate sale items, and more. Think of Craigslist Chicago as one giant, virtual yard sale that encompasses all of the entire city, from Jefferson Park to the South Loop. It’s the perfect place to find unique items that aren’t typically available in a traditional retail store.
