Favorite Moving Tools: The Moving Dolly

Dollies are truly a must-have tool for any mover. Here’s why — and why the mover behind the dolly matters, too.

It’s All Physics

Moving dollies allow us to load and unload large items with far less effort. It all comes down to the magic of physics. When we lean the dolly backwards, the weight of the item moves to the wheels, or the axis of rotation. This allows the dolly to hold the load in a way a human never could. We have to be careful to maintain balance (pull the dolly towards yourself too much, and you’re smushed!), but with practice it becomes second nature.

Experience Matters

And we’ve had quite a bit of practice — over 30 years of experience in the moving industry, in fact. In that time we’ve learned a lot, and we make sure all of our movers are heavily trained on how to use equipment and move items with care. A moving dolly is just one piece of the puzzle. It’s the people using it that make all the difference. The moving company you choose can make or break your moving experience, which is why we always recommend working with veteran movers like the Little Guys.
