1.  Backup, backup, backup.
2.  Don't move it yourself. 
3.  Have IBM prep the machine before your move it.
4.  Hire a company experienced in moving electronic equipment.
5.  Be sure the company can insure the AS/400 for full replacement value.  Most 
moving companies insure based on weight which is what you DON'T want.
6.  Have IBM meet you on the other side and setup the machine.
7.  Keep valium on hand, it is wrenching although it usually is not problematic 
barring a truck accident.

Yes, I have known individuals have thrown the AS/400 in the back of their 
pick-up truck and moved it themselves successfully.  Yikes!

Thank you,
