Household appliances is a really diversified section of products, and that influences what's the smartest way to secure them for shipment and also the best method of transporting them. We can roughly group household devices into two subsections, both with its own best method of transportation – small household appliances as well as large household appliances. In the first subgroup you’ll find every device that could easily be transported in a regular car, for example: microwaves, blenders, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These things you may without much effort transport in your own car – either on one of the seats or in the trunk. Small household appliances are also more durable during shipment than the large household appliances. In the big household devices subsection you will find machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. None of them may be successfully transported inside a regular vehicle which is why it must be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household appliances you want to ship, when you want to prepare your devices for the time of transportation, there are a couple of guidelines that are universal for every device. First of all, it is safest to transport appliances in their original boxes. These boxes are best fitted to the size of the appliance which can help to minimize the danger of some shocks on the road breaking your devices. To be extra , you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. When it comes to small household devices, following these rules will most likely be enough to guarantee their safe journey. But when it comes to big household devices there are a couple more rules to have in mind.
Ahead of beginning to secure your devices for the transportation, you have to remove all the removable parts and transport them individually. That goes for all the shelves and drawers (in fridges, especially) and baskets (in dishwashers). When on the road, they are particularly exposed to jolts, which can break either them or the appliance. That is why it is better to remove them from the appliance, enclose them in layers of bubble foil as well as ship individually.
After that you should secure the doors as well as all the cords and water lines. Check if your appliance is dry, as any leaking on the road might damage it for good. If you have to ship a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during shipment. The drum is the less durable element of the washing machine and also an important one – damaging the drum usually means that you will need a new washing machine. The next point is, as stated before, securing the doors. Even if you are certain that the doors will stay closed during shipment, you should still put some tape on it to be certain it really cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations during shipment that might require a hauler to suddenly turn or brake and you need to be positive that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that haven’t been suitably secured are easily breakable because the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are closed safely, you need to consider cords and water lines. They can stay attached to the device (especially if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), however you might want to tie them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from tangling.
After the doors and cords of your device are secured, you need to shield your load from mechani … cal damages. That entails mostly securing the edges and protruding elements with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a cardboard (if you are in possession of the original box or a container in similar size) or wrap the whole device in a considerable layer of bubble foil. This part is crucial – note that even what seems like a minor indentation on your appliance can break it irreparably.
Afterwards mentioned steps, you can put the appliance in the transport provider’s car. Remember that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines have to be shipped vertically to avoid possible leakages. Additionally – when you are transporting household devices in very cold weather (around 0°C) you have to wait at least eight h after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
