I'd individually box the well chilled cakes and stack them at the venue.

Take a small repair kit with you (RI in a sealed cornet, extra ribbon, spatula,  flowers, even a small amount of spare fondant /buttercream, wrapped up) a non slip mat in your air conditioned car.

You'll not get a problem if you have a repair kit...but if not the bad cake fairies can be mischevious

Make sure your support structure is fine by stacking the cake and doing a full check before you leave, drive safe, and Bob's your uncle!

All the best

You will be fine, stay calm, make sure the tiers are level, well supported and crucially as well, chilled.

Take a few wee things I suggested above as a repair kit (just in case lol)

Oh yes, mine live in the fridge from completion to delivery...not beside the raw onion/ fish/garlic/mayonnaise/whisky coleslaw so beloved of my family...kidding! Just have it boxed in their own individual boxes till its time to leave. Cold cake behaves itself during transport, but make sure the support structure is sound. Have a trial assembly at home, box them fridge them and keep air  con on during transport,.......You'll be fine x

It will be fine in the fridge. If you put them in the box, put them in the fridge, then take them out of the fridge but leave them boxed up when you're ready to deliver it any condensation will form on the box, not on the cake. And the box will help keep the cake cold while you're traveling with it.
