Household appliances

Household appliances essentially divide into 2 main categories: big devices like ovens, dishwashers or washing machines as well as smaller appliances, like microwaves, dryers, curling irons, irons, electric shavers, hair removers, mixers and so on. Small ones you can quickly transport by your vehicle, but bigger appliances usually are too high to be transported by passenger cars as well as need to be shipped in special way.
