As long as you try not to splash it too much there won’t be any issues

I carry mine from the garage to the kitchen to keg/bottle.

As Beer Baron said, take it easy and it will be fine.

Before I put my foot in my mouth, can you provide a link to this "website video"?

Personally I don't have a problem moving it, but I would need to know why &/or when I'm moving it to assess the risks involved.

Cheers,

Speaking of moving your fermenter, if you’re using an old school one with an aiglock, pull the airlock out a bit before you move it. Forgot the other night and sucked half the sanitiser back into the fermenter.

We suggest this up front because many people don't realise that they may need to locate the FV in a different position for bottling and then struggle with the weight of the FV once it contains the brew.   Injury to self can happen!

Also, the brew can be stirred up a bit if the FV is not moved in a careful (slow and gentle) manner.
