I am moving and...

I am moving and would like to take my fairly new generac with me. I have been told moving it will negate all warrenty on it by one dealer and then by another that it is not so. Can you please tell me the correct situation. I cannot afford to spend another 8000.oo as my husband just died and I am old and moving of financial necessity. My generator is only a couple of years old...Thank you for your help

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the generator? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

I don't know but it is approx 2 years old and it was a 4500.00 machine

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No, I will have a dealer here do it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so. Have never had a problem with it though
