Moving a wall - how possible/easy

I have a non-load bearing wall within my garage that was created at some time to create a mud room (which is finished) between the laundry room and the 1 car garage. I need to move this wall approximately 3 feet so that I can fit my car in the garage and have room to get in the door leading to the house, but would like to maintain the convenience of having the mudroom for storage. How possible/or impossible will it be to knock the drywall off and simply slide the wall over? I know generally what needs to be done - just any advice on what a headache it is going to be would be great. The one downfall is that this room is built up to be level with the house - but this portion of the floor can be left intact. I really only need about 1-2 inches to fit my car in so this step will not be in the way of parking the car.

It will be much quicker to tear down the wall and build a new one from scratch. Even if you want to pull nails and reuse the framing, you will be better off framing a new wall.
