Default Best way to move a disabled 2000 Chevy Venture

A guy at work told me I can have his 2000 Chevy Venture for free, it is disabled. He told me he fried the starter, the car has been sitting for a year

I can:

Replace starter and his driveway and hope that is all that is wrong

Have it towed to my garage 50 miles away

Tow it with my RWD F-350, I would have to rent a trailer and find a way to get it on the trailer

Any thoughts??

Get a U-haul tow dolly. Use a 1100 lb rated trailer/boat winch and pull it onto the dolley.

If you have to use a flat bed, get 2 car ramps, and back the rear end of the truck onto the ramps, this will slope the trailer better(pending on if it has built in ramps)
Or, take his word for it and replace the starter.

Bought the starter, the dolly will be my alternate plan. Thanks Mike
