Excellent job with no problems picking up or delivering my motor bike. They forgot to drop off the cover which they then couriered to me at their cost.

Household appliances is a very diversified category of products, and that influences what's the smartest means to secure them for transportation and also the best way to ship them. We may more or less divide household appliances into two subgroups, both with individual smartest way of transportation – minor household devices as well as large household appliances. In the first subgroup you will find all the appliances that can safely fit into a regular car, like: microwaves, mixers, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These items you could easily transport in your own vehicle – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in car booth. Small household appliances are also less breakable on the road than the big household devices. In the large household appliances subgroup you will come across machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be safely shipped in a regular vehicle which is why it must 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 couple of guidelines that can be used with every item. Firstly, it is best to ship appliances in their original boxes. These boxes are best fitted to the size of the appliance which can help to minimize the threat of any jolts during transportation damaging your devices. To be very sure, you should fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. When it comes to minor household appliances, this 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 remember.
Ahead of beginning to secure your devices for the shipment, you should remove all the removable elements as well as ship them individually. That concerns all the shelves as well as drawers (from freezers, especially) and racks (in dishwashers). During transportation, they are especially exposed to jolts, which could damage either them or the appliance. Therefore it is safer to take them out of the appliance, wrap them in some bubble foil as well as transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cords and tubing. Make sure that your appliance is dry, because any leaking on the road could damage it irreversibly. If you are planning to ship a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during transportation. The drum is the most delicate part of the washing machine and also a crucial one – harming the drum usually means permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as stated above, securing the doors. Even if you are convinced that the doors won’t open while on the road, you should nonetheless secure it with some tape to be certain it really won’t open on the road. There are some situations on the road that might demand a hauler to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you must be positive that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are prone to damages because the hinges are often quite fragile. When the doors are secured, you ought to think about cords and water lines. They should stay connected 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 keep them from getting tangled.
After the doors as well as cords of your appliances are secured, the next step is to protect your cargo fro … m dents and scratches. That means mainly wrapping the corners as well as protruding elements with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a box (provided you have the original packaging or a container of similar dimensions) or enclose the whole machine in a considerable layer of bubble foil. This part is one of the most important – note that even what seems like a small dent on your device can break it irreparably.
Afterwards mentioned steps, you are ready to put the device in the hauler's car. Remember that freezers, dishwashers as well as washing machines must be transported vertically to prevent any leakages. Also – if you are transporting household devices in low temperatures (around 0°C) you need to let it sit for at least 8 hours after arriving to your destination before using it again.
