Default Quick stands?

I'm curious if anyone makes stands that work like a motorcycle rear stand, or the stands they use in the Formula 1 pits... with two solid wheels and a long handle to lever them under the car. Cars are heavy I know, but if you're only lifting a corner at a time and had a set of four... in the garage this could replace both jack and jack stands.

Does anyone know of such a thing?

Nope, not for a sedan. It MIGHT work if you had a person on each side to simultaneously lift each rear corner or each front corner but even then it probably couldn't lift high enough. And I sure as hell wouldn't crawl under a car that was only supported by them, you need jack stands anyway.

Might be cheaper and easier to put airjacks in the car

Have you ever seen hydraulic wheel dollies? They won't get the car very high, though, maybe 4 or so inches. Harbor Freight even sells them. There is a coupon to get them for $50 a piece.

Bought these, but the wheels are too small to move the car easily by myself.
Had to get a friend to help push.

You might be able to find some bigger casters for that on McMaster Carr, or somewhere like that.
