Check the condition of your shifter bushings. How long has it been since you flushed your tranny and topped it off with fresh fluid?

start the car in 1st and drive it onto the trailer. I had the same problem and all i did was flush the clutch fluid and then it was fine. Try this before you put it on the trailer...its easy to do don't even need to jack the car up cause the bleeder screw/valve is on slave cylander on the front of the tranny. Its the same as bleeding the brakes. Just get the wife to grab some brake fluid before she picks u up.
