Had 9 cars park in my spot in an underground complex over the last 6 months, with the latest tosser sticking so far out(it's a corner spot so usually I can at least park in front of them) I have nowhere to park without taking someone else's spot. It isn't in gear but the handbrake is on, what is the best way to move it? Don't think I could bounce it, and trolleys for under the wheels are about €100 for a pair which is rather expensive.

Ideas?

Trolley jack it up and put biscuit tin kids or trays under the wheels

Biscuit tray lids under each wheel and drag it using the towing eye.

Or put a rope on it and drag it out.

Whatever you do I'd like pictures and a video.

Maybe even a picture of how it is now

Biscuit tin lids tomorrow it is! Hoping to wedge it into the corner so I can park beside it. I only use the car at weekends and I'm intending to lay it up for 4 weeks ASAP, so if the offending merc isn't gone by tomorrow or Wednesday it'll be stuck until April.

I usually don't even bother leaving notes, but getting fed up of it now. After 10 days on holiday, the last thing I want late Sunday night is to have no parking space and be forced to deal with this ****. Going to install a fold down security post (the management company can **** off if they have a problem with it) soonish, under €90 and doesn't require anything more than a 12mm drill bit to install which isn't too bad

Buy one of those clamps and have a "release fee".

This. It'll drag easy enough. I was in a 1.3 corrolla that pushed a parked Mazda 6 (iirc) out of the way)

Careful with jacks. If the car has a tilt sensor you'll set the alarm off.

I wouldn't touch it if I were you. Find some way to block him in but if you touch/move the car you could be causing a lot of bother for yourself

Not really, as long as I don't damage it he has no comeback against me(which is how clamping companies are able to operate unfortunately).
I don't think a 99 c180 would have a tilt sensor but sure, I'll find out tomorrow!

Just to point out that if you move someone's car and then block it they'll probably feel justified in moving yours in return.
