Household appliances is a very wide category of products, which influences what's the safest means to secure them for shipment and also the safest way to ship them. We could more or less divide household devices into two subsections, each with individual safest way of shipment – minor household devices and big household appliances. In the first subsection you will find every device that could easily fit into a passenger car, like: microwaves, mixers, juice makers, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These items you can safely ship inside your personal vehicle – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in the trunk. They are also more durable during shipment than the big household appliances. In that subcategory you’ll find devices like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. Almost every one of them can be safely shipped inside a regular vehicle which is why it has to be entrusted to professionals.
No matter which household device you have to ship, when it comes to securing your load for the time of shipment, there are a few rules that you should abide by with every item. First of all, it is safest to ship devices in their original cardboards. They are best fitted to the size of the appliance and therefore can help to minimize the danger of some shocks during shipment damaging your cargo. To be extra , you can fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble wrap. With small household devices, following these rules will most likely be enough to ensure their painless journey. But when it comes to big household appliances there are a few more things to remember.
Before you even begin to prepare your devices for the transportation, you have to take out all the detachable elements and ship them separately. That concerns all the shelves and drawers (in fridges, mostly) and baskets (in dishwashers). When on the road, the removable elements are especially unprotected against jolts, which might damage either them or the device itself. That is why it is better to take them out of the device, wrap them in layers of bubble foil and transport individually.
After that you should secure the doors and all the cables and water lines. Check if your appliance is dry, because any leaking on the road could damage it for good. If you are transporting a washing machine, it is best to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during shipment. The drum is the most delicate part of the washing machine but an important one – breaking the drum may mean that you will need a new washing machine. The next point is, as mentioned above, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not positive 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 during transportation. There is a number of situations during shipment that can require a hauler to suddenly turn or stop the vehicle and you have to be positive that the devices won’t open even then. Doors that haven’t been properly secured are prone to damages because the hinges are rarely very durable. When the doors are closed safely, you ought to consider cords and water lines. They can stay attached to the appliance (particularly if you have no professional knowledge about household appliances assembly), but you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from getting tangled.
When the doors and cables of your device are secured, you need to protect your load from dents and scratches. That entails mostly securing the corners and fragile elements with … some bubble wrap or cardboard. Next step is to either put your device in a box (provided you are in possession of the original packaging or a box of similar dimensions) or wrap the whole appliance in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This step is very important – note that even a seemingly minor dent in your appliance can damage it irreparably.
Afterwards mentioned steps, you are ready to put the appliance in the hauler's car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be shipped vertically to prevent possible leakages. Also – when you are shipping household appliances in very cold weather (approx. 32°F) you need to let it sit for at least eight hours after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
