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 really diversified section of items, and that influences what's the safest means to shield them for transportation and also the smartest method of transporting them. We can more or less arrange household appliances into 2 subcategories, all with individual safest method of shipment – minor household devices as well as large household appliances. In the first subsection you’ll place all the appliances that can easily fit into a regular car, e.g. microwaves, mixers, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These things you may safely transport inside your own vehicle – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in the trunk. They are also less breakable on the road than the large household devices. In the large household appliances subcategory you’ll come across devices like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. Almost every one of them may be safely transported in a regular vehicle which is why it has to be entrusted to experts.
Regardless of which household device you need to transport, when you are securing your cargo for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that can be used with every item. Firstly, it is safest to transport devices in their original packages. These boxes match the size of the device which can help to minimize the threat of any jolts during shipment breaking your appliances. To be extra safe, you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. With minor household devices, this should be enough to guarantee their painless journey. But when it comes to large household appliances there are a couple more rules to have in mind.
Ahead of beginning to prepare your appliances for the transportation, you need to take out all the detachable elements as well as ship them independently. That goes for all the shelves and containers (in fridges, mainly) and racks (from dishwashers). During shipment, they are particularly unprotected against jolts, which could break either them or the device itself. Therefore it is safer to take them out of the appliance, enclose them in layers of bubble foil as well as transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cables and tubing. Check if your appliance is dry, because any leaking during transportation could damage it irreversibly. If you are planning to ship a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during transportation. The drum is the most fragile part of the washing machine but a crucial one – harming the drum usually means permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next point is, as mentioned above, securing the doors. Even if you are positive that the doors will stay closed during the whole journey, you should still put some tape on it to make sure it absolutely won’t open during transportation. There are some situations on the road that might require a transport provider to unexpectedly turn or brake and you need to be positive that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are easily breakable as the hinges are often quite fragile. After the doors are closed safely, you must think about cords and water lines. They should stay attached to the appliance (especially if you have no professional knowledge about household appliances assembly), however you should tie them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from getting tangled.
After the doors as well as cables of your device are secured, the next step is to protect your device from dents an … d scratches. That entails chiefly wrapping the corners as well as fragile elements with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either place your appliance in a box (if you are in possession of the original packaging or a container in similar dimensions) or enclose the whole appliance in a thick layer of bubble foil. This step is essential – note that even what seems like a minor dent in your appliance can damage it irreparably.
After these steps, you can place the device in the transport provider’s vehicle. Remember that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines have to be transported in an upward position to prevent any leakages. Also – when you are transporting household devices in very cold weather (approx. 32°F) you need to let it sit for at least eight hours after coming to your destination before using it again.
