DIY Car Dollies

I’m garage deficient. Or car superfluous–no, that can’t be a thing. I have more cars than garage, so I had to come up with a solution. We have a one car garage with a workshop, but I have two classic cars that need storing. I researched several car dollies, but price and negative reviews led me to go the DIY route.

I found casters with a low profile and a high weight rating that didn’t cost an arm and a leg (when you need 16, the price adds up quickly). Once they finally arrived (backorder, of course) I used some spare plywood I had and created the platforms that the tires would sit on top of. It took three layers of plywood so the stem would not puncture the tires. Add a little paint, I was ready to go.

Here’s where I jacked the car up one corner at a time, praying the entire time, and loaded the car onto the dollies. Then, by myself, I pushed the car over to the workshop side of the garage. Now I just have to figure out where to put my tools.
