Tech help for the PC

As you may already guess, I have a PC that has to be transported to the new place. I assume it's going to be in the top most upper room

My computer comes with a hefty CPU cooler that I don't feel safe with transporting up the stairs.

So what do I do when the day comes when I get the new place? Do I dis-assemble the CPU cooler from the cpu block? Or just put bubble wrap around the areas to stop it moving with foam packing?

I'd take it off.
With the best will in the world, if it's liable to wiggle about a bit it might bugger up the distribution of the thermal paste.

Why risk it for the sake of 20 minutes work?
