Can You Lay a Freezer on Its Side?

You can lay a freezer on its side. You should also cover it with a moving material or blanket, which will keep the outside from being scratched. When it gets to its new destination, put it upright and let it sit for 24 hours prior to plugging it in.

Yes you can, but you will need to leave it sit upright for at least twenty four hours, before plugging it in and running it. The compressor oil will need to run back to the compressor and this takes time. Make sure it is sitting in a warm room also, so it will run back faster.
