Streetwize 2 tonne trolley jack - £19.00 @ Tesco

Found 12th Sep 2014
I've been looking for a trolley jack over the last few days. Cheapest I could find was £25 from Halfords which I actually bought. I've now found one on Tesco's site for £19 with free Click and Collect delivery.

The same is on Amazon for £25 and the customer reviews look good. amazon.co.uk/Str…GWK

i pity those who jack their car up with this, makes a right mess of the sills , wont slot under most new cars nowadays, and wouldnt trust it lifting anything more than a smart car myself.

The only jacks for the sill location is the one you get with the car, else you fab a wooden block. Nothing wrong with these, just that if you want to spend more others do it better.

Had one of these for about 10 years now. Never had any issues and there are not marks on any of my cars sills. As with any kind of jack, if you are working under a car, always use additional supports such as axle stands.

Do you have a smart car? If not what happens when you get a puncture in the middle of nowhere?

I got this one for the 2 year warranty but unless you're using it often you'll really never need it.

What a load of tosh! For a start, you don't need a jack to lift a smart car, just use your hands.

My Halfords version looks similar to the one in this deal, and I've jacked up several cars without damaging the sills by using the indicated reinforced areas. As previously mentioned, use a piece of wood (or similar) to spread the load if you're worried. And as for not slotting under most new cars, again that's rubbish! It slots under my modern performance car without issues.

you'll find these are all basically the same jack made in far east but painted different colours

things to watch for is min height so fits under sills, and max height is enough to lower onto axle stands.

If you are going to be using it often invest in a larger (capacity and dimensions) jack as it will be safer and more stable

Possibly, however Clarke tend to do well in reviews and it's handy having a shop not far if there's an issue.

Totally agree. There is ALWAYS a reinforced area on a sill for lifting the car, and I also use a small block of wood that has a wee bit of "give" in it.

these are the highest if you want to crawl under the car and your quite big. perfect for whipping the wheels off but i have another with a much higher height

All I use mine for is swapping the wheels over twice a year. Saves me bashing my knuckles using the boot jack.

And to be fair, 2 tonne weight is ample for most people. Even on a car that weighs 2 tonne, you're not actually lifting the whole weight by jacking up one corner...far from it.

Most people? I've never met someone who weighed over a ton, let alone two.
