dolly wheels

I need to get hold of a set of 4 360 revolving dolly wheels to make up 4 support frames for sideways movement of a boat trailer etc.
I have had a quote from a company for 4 x easy removable units with whole winding mechanism and matched to the trailer frame dimensions. 600 plus vat.
I wonder if I can do this myself??? each wheel has to be able to take 500kilo
anyone know where I can get these?

:

8 foot length of scaffold pole and a block of wood springs to mind if sombody else is there to put them under the wheels.

If it's a painted floor.. a quick squirt of Fairy Liquid by the tyres and a good shove gets the job done..... some Welsh Geezer showed me that one.. not that he's mean you understand?...

fairy liquid or other cleaner

thanks jono,
I also had the idea of fairy liquid combined witha tarp which has the advantage that it really is a one man job.
trailer arrives next thurs/fri so will try it out (obviously minus boat) just to get an idea
