Household appliances is a truly diversified section of things, and that influences what's the safest way to shield them for shipment and also the smartest method of shipment them. We could more or less divide household appliances into two subgroups, each with its own best way of shipment – minor household devices and large household appliances. In the first subsection you will find all the appliances that could safely be transported in a passenger car, like: microwaves, blenders, food processors, toasters, boiling pots as well as many more. These items you can easily transport in your personal car – either on the back seat or in the trunk. Small household appliances also tend to be more durable during shipment than the large household appliances. In the large household appliances subgroup you will find machines like: freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be successfully shipped inside a passenger car and therefore has to be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household device you need to ship, when it comes to securing your devices for the time of transportation, there are a couple of rules that you should abide by with every device. Firstly, it is best to transport devices in their original cardboards. They are best fitted to the dimensions of the appliance and therefore will minimize the threat of some shocks during shipment damaging your devices. To be very safe, you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble wrap. When it comes to small household devices, this will most likely be enough to ensure their safe journey. However for large household devices there are a few more things to remember.
Ahead of beginning to prepare your appliances for the shipment, you have to remove all the detachable elements and transport them individually. That concerns all the shelves as well as containers (in freezers, mainly) and baskets (in dishwashers). During transportation, they are particularly exposed to jolts, which can damage either them or the device itself. That is why it is safer to remove them from the appliance, wrap them in some bubble wrap as well as ship individually.
After that you should secure the doors as well as all the cords and tubing. Make sure that your device is dry, because any leaking on the road might damage it for good. If you are transporting a washing machine, it is safest to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during transportation. The drum is the most delicate element of the washing machine and also a crucial one – breaking the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next point is, as stated before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not convinced that the doors won’t open while on the road, you should nonetheless secure it with some tape to be certain it really cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations on the road that might require a hauler to unexpectedly turn or stop the vehicle and you need to be positive that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are easily breakable because the hinges are often quite fragile. After the doors are secured, you ought to think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay connected to the appliance (particularly if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), however you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from getting tangled.
When the doors and cords of your appli … ances are secured, the next step is to protect your cargo from dents and scratches. That entails mostly wrapping the corners and fragile elements with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a cardboard (provided you have the original box or a container of similar dimensions) or enclose the whole device in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This step is very important – remember that even a seemingly small indentation in your appliance can break it irreparably.
Afterwards these steps, you can place the appliance in the transport provider’s car. Don’t forget that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines have to be transported in an upward position to avoid possible leakages. Also – if you are transporting household devices in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you need to let it sit for at least 8 hours after coming to your destination before turning it back on.
