Good Questions: How to Move IKEA EXPEDIT Bookcases?

Hi AT,

I'm excited since a friend and I just signed a lease on a new place. Hurray for roommates and cutting living expenses! Luckily, our decor styles align pretty well, but between the two of us, we have four Ikea Expedit bookcases. What can I say, we're poor grad students!

Since the new apartment is so close to the old ones, we're moving everything in a borrowed pickup. But I'm torn about the best way to move the bookcases. Should I try to disassemble them or move each one as a single piece? It seems like the particle board might be more safely transported taken apart, but I'm worried about re-assembly. Will the holes for the screws be stripped? Thanks!
