Why Choose GoShare for Craigslist Houston Delivery?

Craigslist Houston is packed with a unique array of items, whether it be a handmade shoe rack or an elegant sculpture. However, as opposed to a traditional retail store, the seller you are purchasing from does not have a delivery fleet available to drop off your item. If you don’t own a truck or have a willing friend with a truck, you might be at a loss on how to get the item home.

What are your other options then? You might think to hire a delivery driver from a Craigslist Ad or Yelp. If you’re already purchasing items on the Craigslist platform, it may seem convenient to hire a delivery driver on there as well.

Unfortunately, you are jumping into a world of unknown when booking someone off of Craigslist or Yelp. It is common to run into unreliable contractors who do not guarantee their work or have insurance in case they damage your goods. A worse outcome is dealing with criminals and scammers who attempt to steal and defraud on the Craigslist platform.

One tragic example involved a family in Georgia, who found themselves the victims of a Craigslist scam when thieves disguising as movers drove off with a moving truck stored with the family’s possessions and stole everything they owned (Learn more about Craigslist scams and how to protect yourself here).

It’s possible to walk away from an item purchase if the picture was hiding stains or damage. However, a delivery driver can easily damage or steal your item, with no way to recoup your lost value.

You don’t have to engage in the hefty risk involved when hiring an unknown person off of an anonymous online advertisement.
