Don't understand your concern. ANY car properly loaded on a car dolly requires the use of wheel straps that "lock" the front wheels from movement during towing. IF you want to go to extreme measures,disconnect the shift cable from the shift lever on the trans while in neutral and then put the shifter in park to be able to turn the key all the way off. Just remember that you will have to reattatch the shift cable to back it off the dolly when you get home! But in my opinion NOT NECESSARY!

thanks ,my concern was as the car moves up and down on the "bumps" it would cause some rotation to the axles BUT sounds like I am over thinking
