It is absolutely safe to disassemble Platform and reassemble it later/elsewhere. We've disassembled and reassembled our office models dozens of times with no issue. Generally, we recommend following the directions in reverse and stopping whenever you get to a point where you're able to move the desk. The less you have to take apart the better, but you'll still be able to re-assemble any pieces you take apart. If you're careful not to strip the screws, it should be an easy process for you.
