My buddy gave me his old washer.   I moved it to my house but had to move it on it's side as it wouldn't fit in the van standing up.  When I got it out of the van I opened the lid and the tub was loose and obviously off center.  It was not like this when I loaded it in the van, so obviously I messed it up when I moved it.  Haven't opened it up yet, however, wanted to know what I need to do to fix it.  I would think that it would be pretty straightforward, and I'm a pretty handy guy, but I don't want to mess it up any more.  Couldn't find anything in the forums.  Any advice on this?  Many thanks.

Tip it up and look for a spring becoming dislodged - most likely the long thin spring at the rear, left of the machine opposite the motor

If the spring is in place you may have knocked the skate plate out of whack. You might get lucky and open the lid, reach in and grab the basket and lift it up hard and sit it back down...if the tub centers itself and looks normal then your good to go. If not you may have to lay the machine down and manual reposition it.
