GoJak® was born in the body shop. In 1984, Al Coccaro, Zendex Tool Corp. President, needed an efficient means to move cars sideways to improve internal traffic flow in his auto body shop.
After reviewing available methods, he soon realized the limitations of existing jacks and dollies. With all the different axle widths, wheelbases, wheel sizes and tire widths, most jacks simply would not work. The time-consuming task to jack up each wheel with a floor jack and insert a dolly was not acceptable. Clearly a better way was needed. After much trial and error, he conceived the GoJak® self-loading dolly. For more than twenty years now, Mr. Coccaro has manufactured GoJak® and a variety of other useful shop products. It’s so true: necessity is the mother of invention.
