This carrier can be useful if you have a space between two walls of 2 to 3 meters, to raise a Berlinette, in a garage box for example.

This carrier can be useful if you have a space between two walls of 2 to 3 meters, to raise a Berlinette, in a garage box for example.

It can also be used to tilt the car to a maximum of 45 degrees angle (sitting on two tires) to improve access under the car. It's a cheap way to make some jobs more comfortable.

  • Regular wooden planks of 16x6 cm are used.
  • The hoists (P) with a 500 kg (1100 lbs.) capacity each, are hung up on 1 cm diameter rope, or on nylon buckles (C).
  • The wedges (A) are simply nailed.
  • The screw (V1 and V2) are secured with plugs in the walls
  • The horizontal plank (170cm long) should be positioned just behind the front wheels or, just in front of the rear wheels.

If you don not have a space with the two walls close enough to each other, you can also make two 45 degree wooden support.

To tilt the car, you disconnect the hoist on one side of the car. Make sure the car can't slip away while you're tilting it. An old mattress instead of two tires is an even better protection for the body.
