How can I move a car with 4 flat tires?
I recently bought a vintage vehicle, and I want to fix it up. It’s currently in my driveway, but I need to move it into my garage. The only problem is that all four tires are flat. How do you move a car if all the tires are flat?
Moving a car with four flat tires might seem impossible, but rest assured, it can be done! You will just need to use four vehicle dollies.
Before you purchase the dollies, check your owner’s manual or look for a sticker on the driver’s side door jamb to determine the total weight of your vehicle.
This value will likely be labeled as the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Use this number to help you identify which dollies can support your vehicle’s weight.
Once you’ve acquired the dollies, here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Step 1: Put one car dolly next to one tire. Repeat this with the other three tires.
- Step 2: Use a jack to lift the car just enough to slide one of the dollies underneath one of the car’s tires. Repeat with the other three tires.
- Step 3: Lower the vehicle and move the jack out of the way.
- Step 4: Push the car into your garage (or wherever you intend to store it).
There you go! Your flat-tired car is now mobile enough to get it out of your driveway.
