When you need to move heavy items, the Dozop dolly is your friend

When you’re moving house or just returning from a tour of IKEA, bulky items can be difficult to move. This versatile dolly provides a back-saving alternative.

  • What is the maximum weight that’s safe to lift? This varies depending on your stature and physical fitness. However, the guidelines are 25kg/55lbs for a man and 16kg/35lbs for a woman.
  • What is a dolly? A dolly is a low platform on casters that is designed for moving heavy or bulky items.
  • Which dolly should I buy? The answer depends on what you plan to move, but Dozop is a great option for anything up to 115kg/250lbs.

At some point, we’ve all had that moment when we wished for another pair of helping hands. It often happens when you’re moving home, but it can also occur when new furniture arrives. Some people spend their whole working lives carrying around heavy objects. But in most instances, there’s no real need to break your back. Dozop is a small yet sturdy dolly that allows you to wheel up to 115kg/250lbs across any flattish surface. Better still, it folds up small enough to carry in a backpack.

What’s the easiest way to move heavy items?

Unless you happen to own an 80-foot crane, using a dolly is probably your best option.

Dozop provides a sturdy platform that measures around 20 inches square. This is supported by high-grade wheels that roll smoothly across indoor and outdoor surfaces.

Due to the low-profile design, you can safely stack multiple items on Dozop without worrying about the whole lot tipping over. Meanwhile, the small footprint of this dolly makes it great for using in tight spaces — in retail, for instance.

Small yet sturdy

In the Standard pack, your dolly comes with fastening belts and a durable strap. This means you can pull the load behind you, rather than pushing precariously balanced boxes.

Move anything

Upgrade to the Premium pack, and you also get some anti-slip pads and anti-scratch protectors. These are useful when you’re moving delicate yet bulky objects, such as vases and statues. Both packs include a durable carry bag for your dolly.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Dozop is how small it becomes when folded down.

Seriously small

Two sides of the frame meet, while the other two sides tuck away neatly for storage. You can also remove the wheels, leaving you with a device that measures just three inches thick. Furthermore, Dozop only weighs 2.5kg/4lb, so you can easily carry it to the spot where it’s needed.

Lightweight design

Once you arrive, the dolly takes only a couple of minutes to reconstruct.

“Everybody, at some time, has had to move heavy, awkward, or multiple packages and not had the right tools at the right time…At only 4.5lbs and measuring 3x6x21 inches when collapsed, Dozop is the lightweight and compact solution. With a maximum weight of 500lbs, its capabilities are unmatched by anything in the marketplace.” — Dozop on Kickstarter
