Regardless of how you decide to transport the refrigerator – horizontally or standing, it is important to follow a number of recommendations:

All removable parts and parts of the unit should be disconnected and packaged separately in advance;
do not transport an undefrosted electric refrigerator;
You can avoid damage to the case by placing it in factory-made foam packaging or a cardboard box, wrapping it with tape;
Before transporting the refrigerator in a car, you should prepare a piece of thick cardboard or cloth and place it under the unit – this will help avoid scratches;
the refrigeration unit must be firmly secured in the car to prevent it from moving while the vehicle is moving, making a sharp turn or braking;

Is it possible to transport a refrigerator horizontally on its side?

When transporting an electric refrigerator in a jeep or car, you need to place it in such a way that it does not lie on the door or back wall – the unit should be placed on its side;
Finding out which side to transport the refrigerator correctly is very simple – you need to ensure that the tubes coming out of the compressor are directed upwards. In some models of refrigeration units, the tubes branch in different directions or are completely hidden, in which case it can be transported on either side, securely fixed;
You should not plug the device into the outlet immediately after transportation – you need to put it back in place and wait 2 to 4 hours. During this time, the electric refrigerator will reach the air temperature in the room, and the refrigerant will be evenly distributed throughout the tubes.
