Household appliances

Household appliances essentially split up into two main sections: big devices for example fridges, dishwashers or washing machines as well as minor appliances, e. g. microwave ovens, vacuums, curling irons, irons, electric shavers, coffee makers, mixers as well as many others. Small items you may easily ship by your vehicle, yet larger appliances usually are too large to be shipped by passenger vehicles and need to be shipped in particular way.


Moreover, unlike furniture, large part of the household appliances should not be disassembled, which causes them to be even more challenging to transport. That’s the main reason why usually, you will need help from experts when shipping bigger household appliances.


Methods of shipping household appliances


While ordering a shipment for your household devices, you do not need to worry about making sure it is safe when shipped. Expert transport providers will know how to secure it properly as well as keep the cargo from breaking during transport. While transporting larger household devices by yourself, exercise caution, so that you can avoid damaging or scratching the devices. If possible, always keep the original wrapping, as it is best suited for shipping household appliances.


Fridges must be defrosted at worst a few hours prior to the transport. All the removable elements (e. g. shelves, containers) should be taken out, secured and transported separately. When moving a washing machine, you need to secure the drum. Also, while transporting any appliances with doors, you should be sure, that they are closed and sealed. Readying a gas stove for transport, make sure to disconnect it from gas pipeline.


When wrapping your household devices for transport, you should use bubble foil and Scotch tape. Also it is best to protect the corners of the household device with Styrofoam, so that you can minimize the danger of breaking while on the road. Household appliances should be shipped upright.


Price of transporting household devices


Cost of household devices transport most of the time depends on size, weight and state of the device. Also, price is affected by the distance of the shipment.
