Transporting an Oversized Craigslist Find

Transporting an Oversized Craigslist Find

We have all been there- located the perfect couch/table/bed for our space on Craigslist only to stumble over the fact that delivery is not available. We have a small hatchback which is surprisingly roomy once the seats are folded down but that didn't help us much the day we needed to pick up a couch! (Note: neither the couch nor the car pictures above belong to us.) Luckily for us all, there are many people on Craigslist ready to help us take home our new treasures...

Our couch was picked up by a college student named Tommy who removed the legs, wrapped it in a blanket, loaded it into his truck and delivered it halfway across town for $50! Unfortunately, this all happened over 18 months ago, and we no longer have Tommy's contact information. Sicne we can no longer get in touch with Tommy, we hope our readers have experience with delivery services operating on Craigslist. Please share your recommendations in the comments below.
