Moving Furniture/moving china cabinet


I have a bow front china cabinet to move.  It is 50w x 72h x 15d.  Should I try to move it upright or lying down?

Hi Arthur
Sorry not enough info for me. A picture of the item would help. Normally we would wrap it really tight with moving mats and put it down on its side on a 4 wheeler and send it on its way. Now if you have to go up or down stairs I suggest carrying it on its side again wrapped tightly. If the side has designs or items that could break I would lie the top on the 4 wheeler and move it that way. Peace Love and Happiness
