Glides-Coaters for garage storage

130

Asked by Mar 24, 2013 at 10:59 PM about the Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have seen a ball bearing device to place under the tires for a car in storage, allowing you to easily move a car/truck around in a garage. One man can push the car backwards, forward, or even sideways to maximize storage. I don't remember what they are called. Does this ring a bell with anyone here?

Damn, that tenspeed beat me again! the JCW site was a dissapointment as now they are featuring only high-profit margin second-rate products from china, even talked "live" with a saleslady who said "I'm sorry we don't have those"....treasured memories...bankrupt...once again, glad you could find 'em mikeyl, gave you ten 'cause zero is no place to be!

I remember reading every page of the Whitney catalog and drawing circles around the wish list items. They used to have good stuff with low prices. When the internet came along, they toppled under the digital onslaught.

I noticed the Harbor Freight has some car dollys.

The harbour freight furniture dollies work great for smaller cars (aka VW's) Been using mine for years.
