I purchased a new fridge a few months ago and had to transport it on its side to get home. The sales manager said that the general rule of thumb is to leave the unit upright for twice as long as it was laying down before plugging it in. I would think that a day or two in its new home before plugging it in is good.

what exactly is 'most of'.. 2000 miles, that's gonna be about $350 worth of gas.. plus the mileage on your car, plus any time off of work. (that will take 2-3 days)

I'm doing a turnaround trip I've already calculated the cost in gas Saturday and Sunday not two days of lost work. I've already thought it all through. Thanks for the concern though.
