    I am moving and am wondering about how to safely move my machine. As the title says, it’s a pioneer dc plus tonwhich I’ve added a wise.

    I’m going to use my car, not a truck, obviously. Would it be safe to put it in the backseat? Should I take the wise off and transport in two pieces?

    What are your thoughts on the safest way to transport the stringer and tensioner?

    2 piece. Put the WISE in a cushioned box or bubble wrap it and in the front seat. The Alpha can be in the back seat. 3¢

    Safest method is to put them in the packaging they came in especially the Wise. If you don’t have the boxes any method using reasonable care should work. If you have a stand you may want to take it off. I would buckle up the machine some how so it can’t move around.

    I have always kept the box my Wise came in just in case I have to send it back for repair. That's what I'd use to move it too. The rest of the machine is near indestructible. Don't lose the clamps.

    @Steve Huff me too! It came in very handy. And you can store your lock out tensioner in it while your Wise is in use.
