If the handle she got you for the carboy goes on the neck, never use this for carrying a full carboy or you're likely to get a trip to the hospital's emergency room. The neck will break and the carboy will hit the floor and explode.
When you move the fermented beer it usually has some CO2 dissolved in it that will come out of solution and that will bubble the airlock. You also may have moved it to a warmer location and the temperature difference will also cause airlock action.
