Household appliances is a truly wide section of products, and that influences what's the smartest way to shield them for transportation as well as the safest way to transport them. We can roughly divide household devices into two subsections, both with individual safest method of shipment – small household appliances as well as big household devices. In the first subcategory you’ll find every device that could safely fit into a regular car, for example: microwaves, mixers, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These things you may safely ship inside your personal car – either on the back seat or in car booth. They are also less breakable on the road than the large household devices. In that subsection you’ll come across machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. None of them can be safely transported in a passenger car and therefore has to be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household appliances you want to transport, when it comes to securing your devices for the time of transportation, there are a couple of guidelines that you should abide by with every appliance. Firstly, it is best to transport appliances in their original cardboards. These boxes are best fitted to the size of the device and therefore can help to decrease the danger of any jolts on the road damaging your devices. To be extra sure, you can fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble wrap. When it comes to small household devices, following these rules should be enough to guarantee their safe journey. However for big household appliances there are a few additional things to remember.
Before you even begin to secure your devices for the shipment, you need to take out all the removable elements and ship them separately. That concerns all the shelves and containers (from freezers, mainly) and baskets (from dishwashers). During shipment, the removable elements are especially unprotected against jolts, which can damage either them or the device itself. Which is why it is safer to remove them from the device, enclose them in layers of bubble wrap and ship individually.
The next step is to secure the doors as well as all the cables and tubing. Check if your device is dry, as any leaking during shipment might damage it irreversibly. If you have to ship a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during transportation. The drum is the less durable part of the washing machine and also an important one – damaging the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as stated before, securing the doors. Even if you are positive that the doors will stay closed while on the road, you should still put some tape on it to be certain it absolutely won’t open on the road. There are some circumstances during shipment that can demand a driver to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you have to be certain that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that are not properly secured are prone to damages because the hinges are often quite fragile. After the doors are closed safely, you ought to consider cords and water lines. They can stay attached to the device (especially if you don’t have any professional knowledge about household appliances assembly), however you might want to tie them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from tangling.
After the doors as well as cables of your appliances are secured, you need to shield your cargo from dents and scratches. That means mainly secu … ring the corners and fragile parts with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Then you can either place your device in a box (provided you have the original box or a box in similar dimensions) or enclose the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble foil. This step is one of the most important – remember that even what seems like a small dent in your appliance might break it for good.
Afterwards these steps, you are ready to place the device in the transport provider’s car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be shipped vertically to avoid possible leaks. Additionally – if you are transporting household appliances in very cold weather (around 0°C) you should wait at least eight h after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
