I need help moving my truck back about 12 feet. Super dead battery?

I have a 2003 Chevy trailblazer. The transmission is bad and Im just trying to move the truck back about 12 feet into another parking spot without having to go pay for a new battery. Even if I did get a new battery, I can roll it back by myself. Whats the best place to call to help me out ?

    Put the transmission in neutral, parking brake off, steering wheel unlocked, and several people pulling or pushing in the direction that you want to move it. Simple!

    get a six pack of cheap beer, stop at highschool football team hang out- maybe college football team available. a 30 pack will get most of team to pick up and carry vehicle up apartment stairs. simple muscle power by some young men with incentive-- might have to get root beer for parents. Couple healthy men, workers instead of student athletes- simple push and a refreshing drink in payment. some neighborhoods it is a smoking commodity used in barter - fat doobie will get a good push.

    Your question is confusing - you say 'even if I did get a new battery, I can roll it back by myself'.

    If you can roll it back by yourself, then do so. If you need assistance, get someone to help you.

    If you *can't* roll it back yourself - and can't find anyone else to help, you might be able to use another vehicle and a tow strap to move it. I recently moved my '65 Mustang that has a totally dead battery into my garage by myself (down a fairly steep hill) with a Nissan Versa Hatchback. I took it slow, stopped and adjusted things as necessary, and it went right in.

    Put it in neutral, and push it in the right direction. One person can turn the steering wheel while you all do this.

    If you put your muscles into pushing at the top of a wheel you will need less force to get it to move. Have someone ready to hit the brakes.

    If you can roll it back by yourself, then roll it back by yourself, or call some friends to help you.
