We need a new basement fridge. I can pick one up at home Depot 15 minutes away. The roads are smooth so I doubt I will have compressor rattling issues. As long as I let it stand upright for a few hours I should be good?

Give it 24 hours sitting upright, post-transport, just to be sure.

The old general rule used to be to shake it up as much as you need to, but then let it sit in place for 24 hours upright before turning it on.  Not sure if any recent compressor advances would reduce/eliminate that need or not, but if you're not in a rush, that's probably a good bit of guidance.

If you can put some foam in around the compressor so all the lines aren't stressed that will help a lot. After that let it sit for 24 hours to be safe.
