So you’ve got some stuff that you ordered that needs a way to get to you and shipping is not available or just really, really expensive. Or perhaps you’re going someplace and you’ve got some room for more stuff. Don’t let that extra space go to waste, you can turn it into money. Or if you need something delivered, you can send it with someone who is already going the right way. Here are three websites that hook senders/receivers up with travelers to help things get from point A to point B.
The person who needs something shipped posts what they need and then travelers bid on it. The sender/receiver can look at multiple offers with different time tables and pick the one that works best for them. It can be used for a variety of things from large scale furniture to pets.
This site has been around since 2012. It has sort of the same bidding situation as Nimber but it has the travelers input their information and autosends you the options available for you. This site also allows you to pay in trade with rewards (such as a ride home from the airport). If you have something small, like a painting or piece of jewelry, this may be a good option to get it home.
Like the last two, this site takes information from both parties to facilitate a match. This site also has an option for escrow if you need the traveler to purchase something this way you can get what you need and no one gets ripped off.
