How to prepare Daneker Clock for cross country road trip

by Steve
(New Jersey)

I have inherited a Daneker grandmother clock G66 and need to prepare it for a cross country road trip.

Do I remove the pendulum or tie it to one side?

Do I let the clock spring unwind or crank it up tightly?

It has run down to where the pendulum has stopped swinging but upon removal the clock movement takes off.

Can I lay the clock on its back after dealing with the pendulum issues?

Obviously I will wrap and protect the cabinet for transport but any other suggestions will be appreciated!
