If it was laid down for moving, it is likely not worth repairing at this point. Oil gets drawn through the coolant lines and plugs it up. Was it laid down when moved?
If it was only tilted, it was not damaged by the move. It sounds like maybe a leak has developed in the sealed system. Do you feel any oil on the connections in the tubing by the compressor?
If you can, remove the rear panel from inside the freezer to get a look at the evaporator coil's frost pattern. If cooling is not as it should be, please let me know what you find with that frost pattern.
It should have reached well below freezing in just a few hours. I suspect a low refrigerant level. Let me know on the frost pattern on that coil, please.
You are correct, that is not good. There is a leak and the refrigerant level is low. This type of repair is one that will require specialized tools and training. You can expect it to cost around $350 + parts to have it professionally repaired.
