Gas prices have been rising consistently over the past month and you may be noticing just how much of our lives are dependent on the fuel that powers vehicles from A to B. The first task that comes to mind is, of course, transporting ourselves, our friends, family members, and pets. But what about our stuff? Understandably, shipping your belongings has been made increasingly expensive with rising gas prices as well.
Now there’s a way to skirt the rising costs of shipping with a new online service that essentially lets your belongings hitch a ride with someone who is already headed your way. HitchHauling.com facilitates communication between people who are trying to have something shipped, and people who are going there anyway. Plenty of people are making long road trips for a variety of reasons – family trips, moves, or just a taste for adventure. If any of these people have some extra space, why not let your shipping items come along for the ride?
HitchHauling interfaces for haulers too – allowing road-trippers a way to make some extra cash if they can find a local resident trying to get some stuff shipped to wherever they happen to be going. The site puts such people in contact and only charges 99 cents for the contact exchange. From there it’s up to the hitchers and haulers to negotiate a deal.
So if you’re trying to get something shipped for cheaper than professional shipping, or you don’t mind taking on a bit of extra cargo to make some cash, check out HitchHauling.com
