    What they said was true, fridges are not that heavy if you have an appliance dolly (has wheels on it and the back has rollers to go up and down stairs) they are just bulky..

    It is the freon (sp?) that will get everywhere if you lay it on its side, just stand it up in your truck and tie down really well...if you dont have an appliance dolly tie the doors shut and just pick up with two guys..

    Yep, thanks, that's what we're going to do. I was just hoping for some secret, easy way that I didn't know about.

    You can lay them on there side. If it is going to be for a extended time them let them sit up right for awhile before you turn them on. For a 25 min ride your fine. If it makes you feel better let it sit up for 30 min before turning it on.

    What matters more is do not smack the fridge down on to the ground or thump thump down the steps. Thats harder on the compressor.


    And yes I know because they do it everyday where I work.
