Moving Electric & Hybrid Vehicles on Wheel Skates
An alternative way of moving Electric and Hybrid Cars opposed to 'straight dragging' is to lift onto vehicle wheel skates before winching up the vehicle bed.
Lifting onto vehicle wheel skates before winching may be more time consuming in terms of operation, however, the risk of damage to the vehicle is minimised.
When and How to Use Recovery Wheel Skate Skids
Wheel winching skate skids
For moving or recovering cars or light commercial vehicles on a hard surface when, for whatever reason, one or more of the road wheels cannot be rotated.
This could be because the wheel(s) is locked, damaged or access to the vehicle is prohibitive (for example, vehicle locked keys not available and handbrake is on). It could also be used to unload a locked vehicle off of the back of a recovery vehicle
