If you want to stick to decking the halls rather than decking the kid who makes a sappy mess out of the roof of your car, maybe let someone else pick up and deliver your Christmas tree this season.
Dolly, the Seattle-based on-demand moving service that connects people who need a truck to actual truck owners, is promoting a festive new tradition.
Users enter delivery details (through the company’s app or website) in select cities and pick out a tree online — Douglas or Fraser firs between 5 and 7 feet tall — priced from $29 to $42 with the option to add a tree stand. Schedule a date and time for delivery, and, as Dolly says, “Sit back, and sip on some cocoa.”
There’s no twine to wrangle and no pine needles to deal with on your car. There’s also no photograph of the family at the tree farm, but, hey, convenience has a cost.
The tree delivery option is available in Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, Portland or San Diego until Dec. 17, while supplies last.
Dolly is also giving users the ability to donate to Habitat for Humanity as part of their order. And by hashtagging #DollyDecksTheHalls on a social media image of your decorated tree by Dec. 20, you could win $50 off your next Dolly.
Founded in 2014, Dolly has raised $10 million to date and operates in seven cities. It employs 25 people.
