Quoted from Playerone:
Thanks for the feedback.
We move a lot of machines.
Headbox down with legs off on its back is fine if you want to damage the back and sides of the pin with straps ect...
As do I - and I've moved plenty on my escalera that climbs stairs with the legs off and I've never managed to damage the back and sides of the pin with straps.
If care is taken, and you add a little padding, you won't have a problem. I pack them just like I do for shipping, a piece of pipe insulation slid over the front edge of the head for cushioning, head laid down on the glass, shrink wrapped.
A roll of shrink wrap lasts a long time, and the pipe insulation is about $2 for enough to do 2 pins. I even put it under the straps when I pallet games so the straps won't dig into the cabinet.
Sure seems a lot safer than trying to dolly a pin up a flight of stairs on its legs.
