I store my heavy air compressor on a mechanic’s creeper to make it easier to move around my shop and to take out to the garage or driveway. I bought my creeper at a yard sale for $15 and I love it. — Neal Halsey
If you don’t do your own car maintenance but have a mechanic’s creeper stowed away in your garage, this is another use for the handy rolling platform. Air compressors can be very heavy and cumbersome to haul around your workshop or garage, so putting it on wheels can save you a lot of sore muscles later on! And, depending on the size of your compressor, there may be enough room to store your compressor hose on the creeper, too.
