Have you ever shopped via someone across the country who picks up your item and delivers it to you? That’s exactly what Grabr does. My top came to me from London, which I couldn’t have gotten otherwise. All in all, it was a cool way to recoup some of my travel expenses.
I really wanted to buy a Phantom 4 and soon enough, a friend suggested I try Grabr. It allows you to buy anything you want regardless of your location, and for travelers, they earn extra money for the effort. For me, it’s really convenient because I don’t need to travel somewhere just to get items I want. Instead, a traveler can bring the item to me on his or her trip. I found it easy to communicate with my traveler and sort out the details of my item.
I wanted to buy a helmet on Amazon or eBay but neither supported shipping to Vietnam and even so, shipping would have been a big expense because of the helmet’s size and weight. So, I headed to Grabr and after watching the tutorial, signed up as a user. Within two weeks, I received three bids on my item and a week later, met up with the traveler to receive the helmet. We still keep in touch today!
The first item I requested was a mesh, reusable grocery bag, which seems like an everyday product but actually isn’t readily available here in Finland, especially the particular brand I ordered. After meeting up with my traveler to receive the bag, we realized we live in nearby neighborhoods. He happened to be on a business trip to San Francisco when he tracked down my grab. Truly a small world!
