When is Dolly available?

Dolly is available 365 days a year between 8am and 8pm. Due to availability, some dates or times might be unavailable. For store delivery, available times are limited to store operating hours. 

You can book as soon as 90 minutes out in most cases, but the more notice you give, the more time we have to find and schedule your Helper(s). For most moves we recommend at least 12 hours notice. If you are booking during peak times (first and last of the month, holiday weekends or summer weekends), Dolly recomments booking as early as possible.
