Household devices is a truly wide section of items, which influences what's the safest means to secure them for shipment and also the best way to transport them. We may roughly group household appliances into two subgroups, all with its own safest method of transportation – minor household appliances and large household appliances. In the first subsection you’ll place every device that can easily fit into a regular car, like: microwaves, blenders, juice makers, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These items you can without much effort transport inside your own vehicle – no matter if it’s on one of the seats or in car booth. They also tend to be less breakable on the road than the big household appliances. In that subgroup you’ll find devices like: freezers, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. Almost every one of them may be safely transported inside a passenger car and therefore has to be entrusted to professionals.
No matter which household appliances you want to ship, when you are securing your cargo for the time of transportation, there are a few guidelines that can be used with every appliance. First of all, it is safest to ship devices in their original cardboards. These boxes are best fitted to the dimensions of the appliance which can help to minimize the threat of any jolts on the road destroying your appliances. To be very safe, you can fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble wrap. 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 large household devices there are a couple more rules to have in mind.
Ahead of beginning to secure your appliances for the shipment, you should remove all the detachable elements and ship them independently. That concerns all the shelves and containers (in freezers, mostly) and racks (from dishwashers). During transportation, they would be particularly exposed to jolts, which might damage either them or the appliance. That is why it is better to remove them from the appliance, enclose them in some bubble wrap and transport individually.
After that you should secure the doors and all the cords and water lines. Check if your appliance is dry, because any leaking during shipment could damage it for good. If you are transporting a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during shipment. The drum is the most delicate element of the washing machine and also an important one – breaking the drum may mean that you will need a new washing machine. The next step is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not positive that the doors won’t open during shipment, you should nonetheless put some tape on it to be certain it absolutely cannot open during transportation. There are some situations on the road that can require a driver to suddenly turn or stop the vehicle and you must be positive that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that are not properly secured are easily breakable as the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are secured, you ought to think about cords as well as water lines. They can stay connected to the device (especially if you don’t have any professional knowledge about assembling household devices), however you might want to tie them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
After the doors as well as cords of your appliances are secured, you need to protect your device from mechanical damages. That means mainly wrapping the … corners and fragile parts with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either put your appliance in a box (provided you have the original box or a container of similar dimensions) or wrap the whole appliance in a thick layer of bubble foil. This part is very important – note that even what seems like a minor indentation in your appliance might break it for good.
Afterwards these steps, you can place the device in the transport provider’s vehicle. Don’t forget that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be shipped upwards to avoid any leaks. Additionally – when you are transporting household devices in very cold weather (approx. 32°F) you have to wait at least eight hours after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
