Dolly was founded in 2014 after the simple task of buying a new mattress resulted in one of the co-founders barreling down a highway with a mattress strapped to their car. The team thought there had to a better way, and with a wealth of startup experience and a desire to make moving easy, they founded Dolly.
Fast forward a few years, and now Dolly has helped match local pickup truck drivers with over 100,000 customers looking for heavy lifting help in 12 cities across the country.
Dolly, an on-demand precision delivery startup, has raised $7.5 million in its Series B investment round led by Unlock Venture Partners, with original investors Maveron and Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer division, joining in the new financing targeted at scaling up Dolly’s same-day retail delivery service.
The Seattle startup just raised $7.5 million, bringing its total funding to $20 million. The fresh cash will help the company expand its peer-to-peer moving app.
The on-demand moving platform Dolly is helping D.C. residents take a load off by delivering Christmas trees to its users. It launched in the metro area in September and is now helping residents gear up for the holidays by delivering Christmas trees for $75.
The Seattle-based on-demand delivery and moving service, Dolly, is rolling out its services in San Francisco and Washington, DC, as it eyes a broader national expansion in the coming months after hitting a milestone of $1 million in monthly revenue earlier this year.
