Last year my husband put his back out as we loaded a kitchen cabinet into our car. So when I decided to get that portable air conditioner from Overstock - that everyone says works great, but weighs over a hundred pounds - I decided to try this. We took that air conditioner up a spiral staircase with this - don't ask me how; it's all a fog, but we did it. I don't know if this strap contraption will work today, moving the stove forward a couple of feet without gouging recently painted wood floors, but we're going to try it. If the only thing it works for is moving that air conditioner without pain, it was well worth it. As the years go by, we'll be using it more and more.....!
I ordered this for my husband for Father's Day since we were moving shortly after that holiday. Before we used this product we had a washer/dryer delivered. The delivery men used this product and I told them I had just ordered it for my husband. They asked if it was this particular product and continued to rave about it. They said it was the best! The following week we used it to move a VERY heavy sofa bed and it was so very easy to use and got the job done with little effort. It would have been nearly impossible for me to move it with him without the use of this Shoulder Dolly. We will continue to use it during the move. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I saw two rather old fellas use this several years ago at my house when they came to deliver a new dryer. They had to bring the old one up from downstairs and then bring the new one down. I felt horrible that they would have to do this heavy lifting, but they pulled these lifting straps out and I was amazed at the ease and control they had with this new invention! I have been looking for these and found them once for twice the price I paid at Overstock. I really just wanted to have them on hand for the next heavy lifting job, so we have not used them yet. I wanted to set my husband up in the recliner and have our teenage son and I pick him and the chair up using the straps, but he was unwilling! Many family members saw the straps by the tree when they came and went for the holidays and said that they have seen those and have been looking for a place to purchase them. Hope you get several orders Overstock- thanks :)
MY HUSBAND AND I BOUGHT THIS AFTER WE WATCHED SOME APPLIANCE DELIVERY MEN USING THEM. FABULOUS!!! HE RECENTLY HAD A HEART ATTACK AND I AM NEARLY 65. WE WORK AT RENOVATING HOUSES, DOING ALL OF THE WORK OURSELVES. EVERY TIME WE USE THIS HARNESS, WE SMILE AT EACH OTHER. IT FEELS FUNNY, BUT WE CAN LIFT HUGE HEAVY OBJECTS LIKE APPLIANCES AND SOFAS. IT IS MUCH LIKE A HORSE HARNESS. THE STRAPS ARE DESIGNED TO PLACE THE WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS AND PREVENT ANY PRESSURE AGAINST YOUR NECK-JUST LIKE A HORSE COLLAR. BUT THE STRAPS ARE WIDE AND SOFT. YOU JUST BEND YOUR KNEES AND STAND UP FROM THE HIPS. I WISH I HAD INVENTEDTHIS.
Purchased this to help us with our move. It was a great help, especially for mattresses and other bulky items. We still used a furniture dolly for the very heavy things like washing machine, freezer, refrigerator; but I think we will use the shoulder dolly for moving many things. It really helps to redistribute the weight and lessen back strain.
I was really glad I purchased this! I lift pianos all of the time and this made it very simple!

The most productive item I have ever purchased anywhere. My neighbor used the shoulder dolly three years ago when he helped me move into our house. So when I sold my home this last month I borrowed his to use with my move. I saw the label shoulder dolly and went to the internet and made my purchase. GREAT MOVE!

Arrived much quicker than I was expecting. Does exactly what it is supposed to, made the heaviest items in my house transform into the easiest to move. The only time this product doesn't help is around corners. It is kind of a pain around corners but straightaways and stairs are a breeze.

If you are moving, like to rearrange furniture, or just need to move something large up a flight of stairs, this product will pay for itself after the first use. While photos show a happy couple lifting washing machines and refrigerators, you still need some back and leg strength for these heavier items. You will save your hands and the need for multiple rest stops. The Shoulder Dolly is the one to buy if you are looking.
this product is awesome , its a back saver! well worth it!

I've been trying to find this gem ever since I used a freind's set a few years ago and haven't been able to locate them anywhere. I was so happy to find them at overstock.com. It's amazing how much easier the shoulder dolly makes moving bulky or heavy items. Get a set ... you'll be glad you did!!
