    Instead of using paper cardboard find some plastic cardboard like they use for real estate or political signs, it will slide much easier and hold up better.

    Buy a high-lift jack. jack it up and push it over. I've moved cars, cargo containers and machinery for years this way.

    When I was in the Navy, sometimes in heavy seas our helicopter would slide sideways in the hanger even with 24 tie down chains. On a small boat there's about 6 inches of clearance on each side an absolutely no way to manuver it. Solution was to get a piece of sheet metal for each wheel set, grease it up real good and slide it under each tire. An eighth inch is enough. No jacking required. Ten guys could push a 20K lb helo one end at a time sideways to clear the door with ease. Jacks, dollys and plywood would work too like suggested. Is it out yet?
