The Roadway Moving Company in New York has a new question for their customers:
“Would you like to pay by cash, credit card or Bitcoin?”
From this Business Insider report, it sounds as though Roadway is not the very first moving company to begin accepting payment in Bitcoin. Apparently, there are others, which points to the birth of a new trend in the moving industry.
Roadway owner Ross Sapir (yup, the very same Ross Sapir) says the acceptance and use of Bitcoin is a sign of advancement and progress. He points to several advantages in using the cryptocurrency, including
- Safety – Bitcoin transactions don’t involve personal, identifying information.
- No third-party involvement – meaning no banks or other institutions to get in the way of – or extract fees from – the transaction.
- Low fees – lower than using credit cards or other forms of virtual payment.
- Untaxed purchases – with no identifying information tied to transactions, they cannot be traced and therefore cannot be taxed.
“We as a company are always looking to be the leader in providing the newest and most advanced services to our client,” Sapir tells us. “I’m confident that this form of currency will soon be mainstream in the moving industry and I’m thrilled to be leading the charge into this new era.”
If you want to start using and accepting Bitcoin, or just want to learn more, this is a good place to begin if you want to take the plunge like they are.

Full disclosure: I’m a child of the suburbs. I grew up in sprawling northern California, where trips to used bookstores and the mall are practically pastimes. There wasn’t much spatial constraint when it came to accumulating things. If I picked up a tchotchke, there would definitely be a place for it somewhere in my home.
