Household devices is a very wide section of things, and that affects what's the best way to shield them for shipment and also the best way to transport them. We can roughly arrange household appliances into two subsections, both with its own safest method of transportation – minor household devices and large household devices. In the first subsection you’ll find every device that can effortlessly be transported in a regular car, e.g. microwaves, blenders, food processors, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These items you may safely ship inside your own car – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in the trunk. Small household appliances also tend to be less breakable during shipment than the big household appliances. In that subcategory you’ll come across devices like: freezers, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be successfully shipped in a regular vehicle which is why it has to be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household device you want to transport, when you want to prepare your load for the time of transportation, there are a few rules that you should abide by with every device. First of all, it is best to ship appliances in their original boxes. They match the size of the appliance which can help to lessen the threat of any jolts during shipment damaging your appliances. To be very safe, you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. With small household appliances, this will most likely be enough to guarantee their safe journey. But when it comes to big household appliances there are a few additional things to remember.
Before you even begin to prepare your appliances for the transportation, you need to take out all the detachable elements and transport them independently. That goes for all the shelves and drawers (in freezers, mostly) and baskets (in dishwashers). During shipment, the removable elements are particularly exposed to jolts, which can break either them or the appliance. Therefore it is better to remove them from the device, enclose them in some bubble foil and transport separately.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cables and water lines. Make sure that your appliance is dry, as any leaking during transportation could damage it for good. If you have to ship a washing machine, it is best to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during shipment. The drum is the most fragile element of the washing machine and also an important one – breaking the drum usually means permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next point is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Even if you are convinced that the doors will stay closed while on the road, you should nonetheless put some tape on it to make sure it really cannot open on the road. There are some situations during shipment that can require a transport provider to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you ought to be certain that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that are not properly secured are easily breakable because the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are secured, you need to consider cords as well as water lines. They can stay attached to the appliance (particularly if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), however you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
After the doors as well as cables of your device are secured, the next step is to shield your cargo from mechanical damages. That means mainly wra … pping the corners and protruding parts with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either place your device in a cardboard (provided you are in possession of the original box or a box in similar size) or wrap the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble foil. This part is crucial – note that even a seemingly minor dent in your appliance can break it for good.
Afterwards mentioned steps, you can place the appliance in the hauler's vehicle. Remember that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be transported in an upward position to prevent possible leakages. Also – if you are shipping household appliances in very cold weather (approx. 32°F) you have to wait at least 8 hours after coming to your destination before turning it back on.
