Household appliances is a truly large category of products, and that affects what's the best way to shield them for transportation and also the best method of shipment them. We can more or less group household devices into 2 subgroups, both with individual safest way of transportation – minor household devices and large household appliances. In the first subgroup you will place every device that can effortlessly be transported in a regular car, like: microwaves, blenders, food processors, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These things you could without much effort ship in your own car – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in the trunk. They also tend to be less breakable on the road than the big household devices. In that subgroup you’ll find machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. None of them may be successfully shipped in a regular vehicle and therefore ought to be entrusted to experts.
No matter which household appliances you have to transport, when you want to prepare your load for the time of shipment, there are a couple of rules that you should abide by with every appliance. First of all, it is safest to transport devices in their original boxes. They are best fitted to the size of the appliance and therefore will minimize the threat of some shocks during shipment breaking your devices. To be very safe, you should fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. With small household appliances, following these rules should be enough to guarantee their painless journey. But when it comes to big household devices there are a couple more things to have in mind.
Ahead of beginning to secure your devices for the shipment, you need to remove all the removable elements and transport them individually. That goes for all the shelves as well as containers (from fridges, mostly) and baskets (in dishwashers). During transportation, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which might damage either them or the appliance. Which is why it is better to remove them from the device, enclose them in some bubble wrap and ship separately.
The next step is to secure the doors as well as all the cords and water lines. Check if your device is dry, because any leaking during transportation could damage it for good. If you are planning to ship 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 but an important one – damaging the drum usually means that you will need a new washing machine. The next point is, as stated above, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not certain that the doors will stay closed during the whole journey, you should nonetheless put some tape on it to make sure it really cannot open on the road. There is a number of situations on the road that can require a driver to suddenly turn or stop the vehicle and you need to be positive that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that haven’t been suitably secured are prone to damages because the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are secured, you ought to think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay connected to the device (especially if you have no expert knowledge about household appliances assembly), however you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from getting tangled.
After the doors and cords of your appliances are secured, you need to protect your load from mechanical damages. That entails mostly wrapping the … corners and protruding elements with layers of Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a box (provided you are in possession of the original packaging or a container of similar dimensions) or enclose the whole device in a thick layer of bubble foil. This part is very important – don’t forget that even a seemingly minor dent in your appliance might break it for good.
After these steps, you are ready to place the appliance in the transport provider’s car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines should be shipped vertically to prevent any leaks. Additionally – when 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.
