This sounds too good to be true, right? Most moves involve pulling a hamstring, stubbing a toe, and a lot of anxiety while navigating the stairs with an armload of boxes. On a recent organizing adventure, I worked with a client on a micro move, shuffling their things from one apartment to another, just a few blocks from each other. They were able to move small items with their own vehicle but didn't want to deal with the big, bulky items like the king size bed, flat screen TVs, sofa, and kitchen table.
My client didn't want to use U-Haul and recruit friends to help move these items down the long apartment hallways, through the freight elevator, and out to the truck. This was the perfect opportunity to try out Dolly, the Move Anything App. They offer a stress-free and affordable way to load, haul and deliver just about anything, whenever you need it. Request a pickup truck and Helper with a few short steps, then relax. Dolly keeps large items off the roof of your car, avoids the physical strain of lifting and helps make moving things easy and fast.
After downloading the app, I got right to work taking pictures and measurements of the items to upload in the app. I scheduled my Dolly about two weeks in advance and requested an additional Helper so that we wouldn't have to lift a finger. The moment a Helper accepted my Dolly, he messaged me right away introducing himself. I was able to stay in contact with him directly which was super helpful because I needed to adjust the timing of the move slightly.
The morning of the move, I got an alert that the Helper was en route and received a call when he arrived at the location. He and his assistant were great to work with - friendly, helpful, and efficient! They got the job done in a couple hours (see above, long apartment hallways, waiting for elevators ...) and it was SO worth it! While U-Haul starts at $19.95 + mileage, hiring two Helpers with their own truck ultimately saved us time and money (that we would have spent on paying friends in pizza and beer to help move everything).
Check this out the next time you need move (or are asked to help a friend move), need to do a donation or transfer station run, or pick something up off Craig's List. Save your Saturday and your nails! Download the Dolly app here
