The Dolly Helper App

  • You can request to work on Dollys in the app. Our Support team does not manually assign Dollys to Helpers & Hands.
  • If you are scheduled on a Dolly, the amount shown in the red box of each Dolly is the amount you receive if it's successfully completed. Teams consisting of a Lead Helper and their Assistant will see one payout.
  • If a Dolly requires 2 Helpers, a solo Helper or Hand can still request it. The Helper app will do it's best to pair an additional Helper or Hand.
  • When requesting Dollys, there may be an option to split a payout 50/50 with another Helper.
  • A flexible time window will be shown for each Dolly. When requesting a Dolly, you will need to select a 30-minute window to arrive at the customer's location. For example, if a customer's flexible time window is from 8am to 3pm, this does not indicate that the Dolly will take 7 hours. The time window just indicates when the customer is available. 
  • Confirmation emails and / or notifications (depending on preferences) will be sent to Helpers that are scheduled. If you don't receive a confirmation email, check the app for notifications or the Scheduled tab.

Dolly Routed Deliveries

  • Routed deliveries include 2 or more Dollys scheduled for the same day as part of the route. In this case, Helpers & Hands can easily build their schedule without needing to request each Dolly separately.
  • Routed deliveries occur during expected peak times of the week or season. Examples include weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and end of month.
  • Check out the Routes section of the Helper app or login to your Helper Dashboard to view them in your browser.
