Our mission

To create freedom of time, freedom of choice, and freedom from worry.

We do this by continually re-imagining and innovating the way moving and delivery should work.

Who We Are

How Dolly Started

It all started when our Co-Founder Chad, in the midst of a move, found himself barreling down the interstate with a mattress strapped to his car. Forced to take moving matters into his own hands, with his mattress flapping in the wind, it became very clear—there had to be a better way.

Enter Dolly, the stress-free and very affordable way to load, haul and deliver, just about anything, whenever you need it. Request a truck and Helper with the tap of a button, then relax. We'll keep large items off the roof of your car, save you a trip to the chiropractor and help make moving things—big and small—easy and fast.

Where did the name come from?

The founders were enjoying a delicious brunch at Elly's Pancake House in Chicago while taking a break. We had been working on the concept for a few weeks, but had yet to secure a name.

It had to be short and sweet, easy to remember. There had to be a better name than jamming two words together...the perfect name was out there.

Suddenly, one of us knew the object but forgot the name. "It's a tall thing, with wheels...to move stuff. Delivery guys always have them—what's that called?" "DOLLY!"
