It’s something you only see in New York — people carrying eight bags for ten blocks, or even on the subway, because we don’t have a car trunk like every other person in America. Stop the madness! Hourly rates for Carpingo mean that you can use a car share for more than just day trips. The next time you have some errands to do, reserve a car from us, and the whole thing will be a lot less painful.

Bring home your Ikea furniture the day of, instead of waiting around for delivery or splurging on shipping costs. Also, buy as many heavy bookshelves and bed frames as you want, without worrying about how much you can reasonably carry with you on the ferry.

Buy the farm at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket—seriously, the whole farm. Whether you’re hosting a big dinner party or just stocking up on fresh meats and produce, it’s a lot easier to buy big if you’ve got a set of wheels to carry it all home.
You don’t have to be in college to buy by the keg | Didriks via Flickr
Pick up provisions for your party at Carousel Beverages in Gowanus, a beer distribution garage that’s open to the public. This is the place to buy big amounts of brews wholesale, whether you need a few cases or a keg. You’ll save money, and it’s a hell of a lot easier than lugging a bunch of six-packs from your local bodega.

Stock up at Costco in Sunset Park. Let’s face it: If you’re going to this wholesale behemoth, you’re going to buy the biggest jars and multi-packs of everything on your shopping list. Rent a van or an SUV and go for broke (without actually, y’know, going broke.)
You may need a car just to get across the store | via Wikipedia
Go on a do-it-yourself spree at Lowe’s or Home Depot. You may not be able to cart home a fridge yourself, but if you’re looking to repaint your apartment, retile your bathroom, or just finally get started on those shelves you’ve been meaning to build, a trunk to cart it all home will take you a long way.
Got stuff to do? Let Carpingo do the heavy lifting!
