Washington DC Furniture Delivery and Pickup


Are you considering purchasing a large item on Craigslist Washington DC? Craigslist is a great place to buy used, antique, and hand-crafted furniture, yard equipment, instruments, and electronics. Unfortunately, some may miss out on these deals because they don’t have access to a vehicle large enough to bring these items home. 

Fortunately, GoShare is your friend with a truck! Use GoShare’s website or download our delivery app to connect with local delivery professionals on-demand. It’s the perfect solution for Craigslist and OfferUp delivery and pickup in the DC area. 

Using GoShare is easy! Use the website or app to get a free estimate. It takes less than a minute. Enter your pickup location and details about the item or items that need to be moved. If you have a picture from the original listing, you can add it to the app to give the delivery professional more information about the project. Request one or two delivery professionals with a pickup truck, cargo van, or box truck. If it’s a large item, we suggest adding a second professional unless you are able to help load and unload the item.

Why Choose GoShare for Craigslist Washington DC Delivery?

When shopping on Craigslist Washington DC, you are buying from members of your local community. Unlike a large furniture retailer or national chain store, your neighbor won’t have a fleet of delivery trucks, ready and able to deliver your purchase to you. And, if you don’t have a truck or a friend with a truck willing to help out, you may have to pass on the deal you were hoping to make.

You might consider hiring a delivery driver off of a Craigslist Ad or Yelp to help pick up the items. After all, you just bought some furniture off of Craigslist, why not use the site to find someone to delivery it as well? 

Unfortunately, when you book someone off Craigslist or Yelp, you have very little information about how reliable they are, whether they are insured, or if they will guarantee their work. Unfortunately, criminals and scammers will use the Craigslist 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.

When you purchase a physical item, you have the option to look it over and walk away if you find something doesn’t meet your standards. Couch have a rip that wasn’t shown in the pictures or disclosed in the listing? While it’s annoying to have your time wasted, you can walk away without paying a dime. A delivery person, however, can damage or steal your item and you are stuck with no way to recover your payment or item.

GoShare is a safe, affordable option for Craigslist delivery in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. You aren’t hiring an unknown person off of an anonymous online classified. The delivery pros on the GoShare app are background checked, and maintain high customer ratings. When you use GoShare, you will receive a clear estimate. Plus, you’ll be able to track the status of your delivery and pay in the app or online. No need to pull out extra cash.
