Move cars very easily to make a great deal more area in garage or race shop. Dollies, presented in steel or aluminum, have rounded lower sections to safely cradle every tire. Steel dollies are 14-1/2 inch wide x 23-1/2 inch extended with regular casters for use with automobiles weighing less than 2,500 lbs. Aluminum dollies are 10 inch wide x 15-three/4 inch lengthy with regular casters for automobiles up to 3,500 pounds or deluxe ball bearing swivel casters to accommodate cars up to five,000 pounds. Deluxe casters also include a single wheel brake per dolly. All dollies are sold per pair.
I ordered two sets of these dollies so that I could put a vintage car in the corner of my garage (it's a small car--a 1955 Hudson Metropolitan). I'd been parking my daily driver outside the garage, but that gets old when the weather turns cold and snowy. I did some measuring and found that my Metro would fit next to the wall where I had been keeping the garbage cans. With some rearranging, I could fit four cars (two SUVs, one coupe, and the Metro) in my three-car garage. These dollies made that possible and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
I bought this product because of the price, seller, and specifications. I was not disappointed. The delivery was quick (Amazon Prime) and the double-boxing was sufficient to protect the very heavy packages. It did take a while--and two people--to assemble the wheels to the frames. There are four bolts, washers, and nuts for each wheel. Not hard to assemble at all, just took time because I wanted to be careful not to scratch the black paint off the dollies.
The build quality of the dolly is good: the metal is very rigid and the painting was well done. The metal casters looked and felt very rugged. Once assembled, it was clear that each one could support the rated weight (2500 pounds). As each wheel of my car puts about 500 pounds of pressure on the dolly, it was no sweat at all for them to hold the wheels. The tires are A78-13 size and fit just right on the dolly (I wondered if a bigger tire would fit as well and decided it was probably an optical illusion to think a bigger tire wouldn't fit). Once on the dollies (with the help of a hydraulic jack), the car was easy for one person to push around the garage. Neat.
One more note: the wheels on this model do NOT lock. I used a couple of 2x4 boards to block the dollies after moving the car into place. I mention this point because in order to get dollies that lock you have to go way up the price scale. I don't think it's worth it for locks, at least for the intended use I had. If you're the kind of gear head who will pay anything for a car accessory then you might want to spend more for fancier dollies. But I thought $140 for these two dollies was just right. And it was.
If you have any comments or questions, let me know here and I'll answer.
Definitely not what we hoped for. Bought two sets to help make storage of the "summer car" easier to move around in the garage for one person. Takes at least two to do the job. Wheels only move front to back, don't spin at all. Difficult to assemble the first one, but got easier once you get the "jist." Probably better suited for motorcycles and the like....
