The 6 Best Car Dollies

We spent 22 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Perfect for any automotive shop, these car dollies let one person maneuver a vehicle around with ease while working on it. We’ve also included models priced within the range of home mechanics who like to work on their vehicles themselves. They’re sold individually and in sets of two or four, so you can select however many you need. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.
