"Box To Go" is a service for a community of people who are not professional curriers. These people want to pass some stuffs to their relatives or friends or whoever they want comfortable and without routine. People, on the other hand, want to compensate for a daily bus fare or even make some money with just grab of a package of a neighbor and deliver it on the way to own work, study or a walk.
