There is a mail-order catalog company in Tacoma Washington called
Griot's Garage 800-345-5789 or 253-922-2400 that carries a number
ingenious devises for moving around cars (with their tires). They
might have something that will work for you.

I'm looking for any resources, guidelines etc for preserving /
mothballing automobiles. Lynda's question is a good one about on or
off tires. How about fluids? Drain or not? Treatment of rubber and
plastics? Use of car covers or open? Does anyone on this list have
the answers and expertise? Thank you.
