Household appliances is a truly wide category of things, and that affects what's the best way to shield them for shipment and also the smartest method of shipment them. We can more or less group household devices into 2 subcategories, each with its own smartest method of transportation – minor household appliances and large household devices. In the first subgroup you will place all the appliances that could safely fit into a regular car, like: microwaves, mixers, juice makers, waffle makers, boiling pots as well as many more. These items you could effortlessly transport inside your own vehicle – either on one of the seats or in the trunk. Small household appliances also tend to be less breakable on the road than the large household appliances. In the large household appliances subgroup you will come across devices like: freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be safely transported inside a passenger car which is why it must be entrusted to professionals.
No matter which household appliances you have to transport, when it comes to securing your devices for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that are universal for every appliance. First of all, it is best to transport devices in their original boxes. They match the size of the appliance which will minimize the threat of any jolts during shipment breaking your devices. To be very sure, you can fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. When it comes to small household devices, this will most likely be enough to ensure their painless journey. But when it comes to large household devices there are a few more things to remember.
Before you even begin to prepare your appliances for the transportation, you should remove all the removable parts and transport them independently. That goes for all the shelves as well as drawers (from freezers, mostly) and racks (from dishwashers). During transportation, the removable elements are particularly exposed to jolts, which could damage either them or the device itself. That is why it is better to take them out of the appliance, wrap them in some bubble wrap as well as transport separately.
After that you should secure the doors as well as all the cords and water lines. Check if your device is dry, as any leaking on the road might damage it for good. If you are planning to ship a washing machine, it is best to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during transportation. The drum is the most delicate element of the washing machine but an important one – breaking the drum usually means that you will need a new washing machine. The next point is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not certain that the doors will stay closed during the whole journey, you should nonetheless put some tape on it to make sure it really cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations on the road that can demand 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 properly secured are prone to damages as the hinges are rarely very durable. When the doors are secured, you have to consider cords and water lines. They can stay attached to the device (especially if you have no professional knowledge about assembling household devices), however you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from getting tangled.
When the doors as well as cords of your device are secured, you need to protect … your cargo from mechanical damages. That means mostly securing the edges and fragile elements with layers of Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either put your device in a cardboard (provided you have the original box or a box of similar size) or wrap the whole machine in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This step is one of the most important – remember that even what seems like a small dent on your device can damage it irreparably.
Afterwards these steps, you can place the device in the transport provider’s vehicle. Don’t forget that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines must be shipped in an upward position to prevent possible leakages. Also – if you are shipping household devices in very cold weather (approx. 32°F) you need to wait at least eight h after coming to your destination before using it again.
