What In The World Is a Shoulder Dolly?


We all have moved in our lives and the common hand truck or moving dolly was the tool of choice for big, heavy and hard to handle items, in fact, it was the only option. Today we have Shoulder Dolly, an innovative strap and harness system that allows two people to pick up and carry up to 800 pounds with ease.

Shoulder dolly uses the power of leverage to move heavy items using your legs and shoulders to lift, making the load feel lighter. It allows your hands and arms to be free to open doors, hold onto handrails or to stabilize the object while going up or down stairs.

 Shoulder Dolly consists of two harnesses and a lift strap, the users’ squat down, slide the strap under the center of the item, then attach the strap to the body harnesses warn by the users. Once the strap is positioned and attached to the harnesses, the users rise up lifting the item with their legs and shoulders.


When Home Depot delivered my new refrigerator last year, the driver and his partner used the Shoulder Dolly to carry it. They told me it is much easier to move and maneuver the item and they could set the refrigerator right in place without it touching the carpet or flooring.

The next time you need to move a heavy or bulky item visit you local Home Depot and purchase a Shoulder Dolly, it will make your move a lot easier.
