Rollerblading Flyer Delivery

Does anybody have experience with using rollerblades to deliver flyers? Is it a good or bad idea?

You wouldn’t catch me in rollerblades…

Have employees on their down time or when your in a neighborhood working take sometime to hit as many houses as you can by foot.

I’ve debated it. Been on skates since I was 3. I feel like I could attack a lot of houses.

Does it look professional? Does that really matter? It would be awkward running into someone. Or would it not be? With a lot of people into fitness nowadays, maybe it would be admirable…or not?

I think that I may give it a shot when the time comes for door hangers. See how it goes.



  • better stamina, work longer
  • easy to roll to break spot
  • easy for big properties
  • looks fine, professional, no complaints


  • stairs a more of a challenge (easier with experience probably)
  • easier to fall

What else?, I thinking it’s worth a try.


So you’re really really fast on rollerblades? :wink:


Oh man Kyle… :joy::rofl:

I’m not into rolling an ankle brother…

In my opinion rollerblading while put out door hangers is like the old zip lock bags with gravel and a flyer tossed on a drive way…

When we are delivering door hangers we run into people that want a quote then and there… so crossing lawns etc would be a nightmare on roller blades.

Besides all that, I would look stupid in rollerblades!!

PS @Streakerfree Alex don’t you have some arrows to draw some where! :wink:


Do it in the middle of the night, nobody up to laugh at you.

Would recommend some sort of headlight.


I used to play ice hockey, and did a lot of aggressive in-line skating whilst younger, then low top speed skates with age. I’ve thought about this, but don’t have blades at the moment.

How about instead of roller blades, you put on drywall stilts? Then you can cover a ton of distance with mega long strides, and you can still walk over grass lawns.


And be dressed up as a clown while walking in those stilts. That would be funny!


How about combine the two?


Here ya’ go, give these a try.

A few years back, we were thinking about getting a Segway. Put a cool wrap on it for advertising, and roll through neighborhoods on weekends dropping flyers. They were pretty expensive so we never went through with it, but I always thought it was a good idea.


If they are tall enough, you could do away with ladders. Your on to something here.

Last thing you’d be worrying about was rolling an ankle.

How about one of those hover boards. You know, like a segway ( not sure if I spelled that right) but without the handle. As a bonus you could use it when doing commercial wfp work…maybe.
