In the assumption that you do have a car...
I usually carry my rig to the car, just remember proper lifting technique and keep the case as close as you can to yourself.
As for transporting, I always lay it mobo side down in the boot of the car. Done it for years and I've never had a problem. I usually strap my monitor in with a seat beat and as everyone else has mentioned bag all the rest of your junk. Just don't forget the essentials i.e. keyboard, mouse, power cables! Nothing worse then driving 30min - 1hr to a lan and then having to go home because your mate forgot his mouse.
