How do you transport (or have shipped) an Alfa with no wheels?

It's a stripped body 600 miles from me.

Do companies like DAS do that? :confused:

IAP had those rollers you put under a wheeled vehicle to move it around your garage/shop. They might work on the unwheeled?

Alternately Assuming you have Front and rear hubs, if you bought 4 emergency spares from a Ford Focus ($15 each from the wreckers)....

Just a thought.

This is just a shell: No suspension, no nothing.

I built a simple dolly to move my Sprint GT body from my garage to the media blaster and then on to the bodyshop.

The dolly was quite easy to build - 4 heavy-duty casters, some 2X6's, and carriage bolts. The casters were positioned under the points where the body attached, so the wood wasn't carrying much weight. And, a stripped Alfa body doesn't weigh much.

This worked fine, transporting the car a few tens of miles on a dedicated flatbed hauler. Now, whether a common carrier would accept such a vehicle is another question. Often vehicle transporters will only accept running cars. Obviously one of those two level trailers that holds 8 or 10 cars couldn't accommodate a body supported on little casters with a 3' track width.

Note: If you do use a dolly, attach your tie-downs to the body, not to the dolly.
