Item sold? Now it’s time to pack it up for delivery. Here’s how it works:
Prep the item
If necessary, wrap your item to protect it from damage during transport.
Pack it up
Place your item into a sealed bag or box. If it’s fragile, please package with care.
Don’t forget the details
Label your package with the buyer’s address, including unit or apartment number, if applicable.
Keep in mind that there may be bumps or sudden stops while your item is in transit. For fragile items like electronics or glassware, package them with care and label the package as fragile. You can also add pickup notes in the app.
If your item is heavy and weighs more than 10 lbs, wrap and package it in something strong that can be carried from the vehicle to the doorstep.
If multiple items are being delivered, package them together in either a bag or a box.
Currently, our local carriers include: Uber and Dolly. We will choose the best option based on distance and service availability.
If your item is a piece of furniture to be picked up by Dolly (available in select cities), movers will retrieve the item from your room of choice - there’s no need to move it yourself. If disassembly is required though, please do so before they arrive. They'll then secure the item for transit.
Leave detailed pickup instructions in the Mercari app to guide the driver to your pickup spot. You can do this contact-free — there’s no need to meet the driver in person. For example, you can text the driver instructions like “Please don’t ring the doorbell. I’ll leave the item on my doorstep right next to the entry mat.”
Leave detailed dropoff instructions in the Mercari app to guide the driver to your dropoff spot. Except for furniture delivery, you can do this contact-free — there’s no need to meet the driver in-person.

Except for furniture delivery, we’ll choose the best delivery partner for you based on the price, time of the day, and the distance between the buyer and the seller. We have partnered with Uber and Dolly to safely deliver your items locally.
