Household appliances is a very wide section of things, and that affects what's the best way to secure them for shipment and also the best method of transporting them. We can more or less divide household appliances into 2 subcategories, each with individual safest way of shipment – small household appliances as well as big household appliances. In the first subcategory you will place every device that could safely fit into a regular car, for example: microwaves, blenders, juice makers, waffle makers, boiling pots as well as many more. These things you may without much effort ship in your personal car – either on one of the seats or in the trunk. They are also more durable on the road than the big household appliances. In that subsection you’ll come across machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them may be successfully transported inside a passenger vehicle which is why it ought 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 rules that are universal for every device. Firstly, it is safest to transport appliances in their original boxes. They match the dimensions of the device and therefore can help to decrease the danger of some shocks during transportation breaking your devices. To be extra sure, you should fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. With small household appliances, this should be enough to ensure their painless journey. But when it comes to large household devices there are a few additional rules to remember.
Ahead of beginning to secure your devices for the transportation, you need to remove all the detachable parts and ship them independently. That concerns all the shelves as well as drawers (in freezers, mainly) and racks (in dishwashers). When on the road, the removable elements are especially exposed to jolts, which could break either them or the appliance. Therefore it is better to take them out of the appliance, enclose them in layers of bubble wrap as well as transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors as well as all the cords and water lines. Make sure that your appliance is dry, as any leaking during shipment might damage it irreversibly. If you are transporting a washing machine, it is wise to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during shipment. The drum is the less durable part of the washing machine and also a crucial one – harming the drum may mean that you will need 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 during the whole journey, you should still secure it with some tape to be certain it really cannot open on the road. There are some situations on the road that can require a transport provider to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you ought to be certain that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that haven’t been suitably secured are prone to damages as the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are closed safely, you have to think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay attached to the device (especially if you don’t have any professional knowledge about assembling household devices), but you might want to tie them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from getting tangled.
When the doors and cords of your device are secured, you need to shield your device from mechanical damages. That … means mainly wrapping the corners and fragile elements with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either put your appliance in a cardboard (if you are in possession of the original box or a box of similar size) or enclose the whole appliance in a thick layer of bubble foil. This step is very important – note that even what seems like a small indentation on your appliance can damage it irreparably.
Afterwards these steps, you can put the appliance in the transport provider’s car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers as well as washing machines should be shipped in an upward position to prevent possible leakages. Also – if you are shipping household appliances in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you should let it sit for at least 8 h after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
