Default New House! Moving beer?

So, my wife and I just purchased a new house and will be moving in 5 weeks. I was planning on brewing my Christmas ale soon to give it a few months to age before taping. If I brew it and just leave in the primary, as long as I drive slow and dont tip it over, the airlock and co2 in the fermenter should keep the beer safe, right? It will prob sit for 2-3 months after we move until it gets kegged so Im not worried about it clearing, more of the oxidation. Thanks!


Primary1: Pumpkin Ale
Primary2: Christmas Ale
Pimary3: Apfelwein
Secondary: Sour Brown
Drinking: Warrior Pale Ale, Wit, American Rye

It will be OK, I would cold crash it before racking to keg.

If I had a nickel for every beer I drank....I would be retired already.

Emphasis on drank, sober since August 28 2011
