Household appliances is a really wide category of products, which affects what's the best means to shield them for shipment and also the smartest way to ship them. We may roughly group household devices into 2 subgroups, all with individual safest method of transportation – small household appliances and big household devices. In the first subcategory you’ll find all the appliances that could safely fit into a regular car, e.g. microwaves, blenders, juice makers, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These items you may effortlessly transport in your personal vehicle – either on the back seat or in the trunk. They are also less breakable during shipment than the large household devices. In that subgroup you will come across machines like: freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. 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 device you want to ship, when you want to prepare your devices for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that are universal for every device. Firstly, it is best to transport devices in their original packages. They are best fitted to the dimensions of the appliance which will decrease the danger of any jolts during shipment destroying your devices. To be extra sure, you should fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble wrap. When it comes to minor household appliances, this should be enough to guarantee their safe journey. But when it comes to big household appliances there are a couple additional rules to have in mind.
Before you even begin to prepare your devices for the shipment, you should remove all the removable parts as well as transport them independently. That concerns all the shelves as well as containers (in fridges, mostly) and baskets (in dishwashers). During transportation, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which could break either them or the appliance. Which is why it is safer to take them out of the device, enclose them in some bubble wrap as well as transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors as well as all the cables and tubing. Check if your device is dry, because any leaking during shipment might 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 shipment. The drum is the most fragile part of the washing machine and also a crucial one – damaging the drum usually means 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 convinced that the doors will stay closed during the whole journey, you should nonetheless secure it with some tape to be certain it absolutely cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations during shipment that might require a transport provider to suddenly turn or stop the vehicle and you need to be certain that the devices won’t open even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are easily breakable as the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are secured, you need to think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay attached to the device (especially if you have no professional knowledge about assembling household devices), but you might want to tie them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
After the doors and cables of your appliances are secured, the next step is to shield your cargo from mechanical damag … es. That entails mostly securing the corners as well as fragile parts with layers of Styrofoam or cardboard. Then you can either put your appliance in a cardboard (provided you are in possession of the original box or a container of similar dimensions) or wrap the whole appliance in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This part is essential – remember that even a seemingly small dent on your appliance might damage it for good.
Afterwards these steps, you can put the device in the transport provider’s car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be transported in an upward position to avoid possible leakages. Additionally – when you are transporting household appliances in low temperatures (around 0°C) you have to wait at least eight h after arriving to your destination before using it again.
