I'm looking for the best way to shuffle vehicles sideways in my garage. I have enough space for 3 cars but only 1 side door (long story with a very small house block)?

Whats the best & easiest method for shuffling cars sideways? I have workshop trolleys but its pretty awkward to do myself now that my boys have moved out of home. They aren't lightweight cars either.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks guys,
yeah I have Kingchrome ones that I have replaced the castors to make it roll easier. They work fairly well but they can tend to get away on me a bit when I'm moving it by myself.

yeah that'd be the worry, do these vehicles not run?

You can't drive the first 2 in and turn 90deg to park the other way with 3rd car across the front of them pointing at the door?

1st world problems hay!

A 1955 Chev wagon doesn't have the greatest turning circle (think bendy bus). May take a 5 or 6 point turn, but that may be my best option if I can't find a mechanical method to keep them square.

I used to park my old Monaro in the garage on a 90 degree angle. It is not fun with 8” rims, no power steering, backing and filling to get into place.
Those GoJaks would have been handy, but back then I probably would not have been able to afford them.
Extra garage doors not practical, eh ? Just gunna havta sell 2 cars. o_O

No chance of more garage doors unfortunately the house is in the way!

You sound like my wife, telling me to sell 2 cars! NOT HAPPENING! :rolleyes:
I'd rather keep pushing the bastards, bad back n all. :cool:
