Household devices is a very wide section of products, and that affects what's the safest means to secure them for transportation as well as the smartest method of shipment them. We can roughly group household devices into two subgroups, all with its own best way of shipment – minor household appliances and large household devices. In the first subgroup you’ll place every device that could safely fit into a passenger car, e.g. microwaves, mixers, juice makers, toasters, boiling pots as well as many more. These items you could safely ship in your own car – either on the back seat or in the trunk. They also tend to be less breakable during shipment than the large household appliances. In the big household devices subsection you will find devices like: freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. Almost every one of them can be successfully transported in a regular vehicle which is why it has to be entrusted to experts.
Regardless of which household device you need to ship, when it comes to securing your cargo for the time of shipment, there are a couple of rules that you should abide by with every device. Firstly, it is best to ship devices in their original cardboards. These boxes match the size of the appliance which will decrease the threat of any jolts during shipment damaging your appliances. To be very , you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble wrap. With minor household appliances, this will most likely be enough to guarantee their safe journey. But when it comes to large household devices there are a few more things to remember.
Before you even begin to prepare your appliances for the shipment, you need to remove all the removable elements as well as ship them independently. That concerns all the shelves as well as drawers (from fridges, mainly) and racks (from dishwashers). During transportation, the removable elements are particularly exposed to jolts, which could damage either them or the appliance. That is why it is safer to take them out of the appliance, enclose them in some bubble wrap as well as transport separately.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cords and tubing. Check if your appliance is dry, as any leaking during shipment could damage it irreversibly. If you are planning to ship a washing machine, it is best to secure the drum, so that it cannot move on the road. The drum is the most fragile part of the washing machine and also a crucial one – damaging the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as stated above, securing the doors. Even if you are certain that the doors will stay closed during shipment, you should still put some tape on it to make sure it absolutely cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations during shipment that might require a driver to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you have to be positive that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that haven’t been suitably secured are prone to damages because the hinges are rarely very durable. When the doors are closed safely, you have to consider cords as well as water lines. They can stay attached to the appliance (particularly if you don’t have any expert knowledge about household appliances assembly), but you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
After the doors and cords of your device are secured, the next step is to shield your load from dents and scratches. That entails mainly wrapping the corners and fragile elements with lay … ers of Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either place your appliance in a cardboard (if you have the original packaging or a box in similar size) or enclose the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble foil. This part is crucial – note that even a seemingly small indentation in your appliance can damage it for good.
After these steps, you can place the device in the hauler's vehicle. Don’t forget that freezers, dishwashers as well as washing machines have to be shipped in an upward position to avoid any leakages. Also – if you are transporting household devices in low temperatures (around 0°C) you should wait at least eight h after arriving to your destination before using it again.
