Can you transport a refrigerator on its side?

Answer

No, a refrigerator should not be transported on its side. Refrigerators should be kept in an upright position as much as possible. Laying a refrigerator on its side can lead to oil leaking into the cooling tubes, which can cause damage to the appliance.

Because refrigerators are large and heavy appliances, they can be very difficult to move. There are several ways to make the job easier. The refrigerator should be completely empty prior to moving it. All doors and drawers should be secured shut. A moving dolly, moving straps and a truck or trailer equipped with a ramp should be available to assist in moving the refrigerator.
