all stacked or as separate tiers that I assemble on site?

It all depends. If the design allows it, I would transport it separate and assemble on site.
You need to remember that 4 tiers is one heavy cake. It can be transported stacked, but you need to organize it well. Ideally, have a cart ready on site when you arrive.

I haven't done this but I could see transporting the bottom and second tiers stacked maybe (using adequate support) , and adding the other two tiers on site. I'm doing a three tier wedding cake next month and will transport all three in containers and assemble there. I'm just to unsure about moving them together. Many do but I'm chicken. Bok bok........

**Come to think of it, I had surgery in June and can't lift much yet. I'll need my dd to carry the 14" heart bottom tier in for me. And I thought I was just needing her to help me serve....

First use SPS for support. Then you can transport whatever you can lift. I always put the top tier on onsite, just so I can check for level one last time.
