use a manual come-a-long & slowly inch it down the ramps
Used my come-a-long many times before I got a winch on my trailer.It's a workout, but works great.
Ended up pulling in my side yard pulling it with a tow rope.
It was a workout, but it's done now. I'll get it in the garage when the brakes are together
I've used a lawnmower to pull cars into the garage before. Take it slow and have someone on hand to stop the car.
Sounds like two different problems, 1) getting it off the trailer and 2) into the garage.
Treat it as such.
I appreciate your creative writing...
There ya go! Get it off the trailer, fix the brakes then move it into its new home.
And be sure to video tape it - in case something funny happens.
Invite 6 buddies to your place then buy them pizza then have them push/pull your car wherever you want
I know you have it unloaded now but just want to mention the come-a-long again. Maverick had the right idea.
I have moved, loaded, unloaded MANY cars/trucks with a cheap $20 come a long and some chain.
Heck even a good ratchet strap, rope or chain will get a dead car off of a trailer with no probs. Hook one end to the front of your trailer, measure out/set out a couple of feet more than lenght of your trailer.. Hook other end to front of car.
Give car a push off of the trailer. It will stop when it reaches the end of it's "leash". Block the wheels, pull tow truck/trailer forward a tad, unhook chain/strap/rope.
That works until the wheel cuts for no reason and you are stuck with the trailer sideways under the car. I've had to recover a couple cars people unloading half it happen to. Tie the steering wheel straight if you go that route.
