Household appliances is a really wide section of products, which affects what's the safest means to shield them for transportation as well as the best method of shipment them. We could more or less divide household devices into two subgroups, all with its own safest method of shipment – small household appliances as well as big household devices. In the first subgroup you’ll place every device that can effortlessly fit into a regular car, like: microwaves, mixers, juice makers, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These items you can without much effort transport inside your own vehicle – either on one of the seats or in the trunk. They also tend to be less breakable on the road than the big household appliances. In the large household appliances subsection you’ll find devices like: fridges, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be successfully shipped in a passenger car and therefore ought to be entrusted to experts.
Regardless of which household device you want to transport, when you are securing your devices for the time of transportation, there are a couple of guidelines that can be used with every appliance. First of all, it is safest to transport appliances in their original packages. These boxes match the dimensions of the appliance and therefore can help to minimize the threat of any jolts during transportation damaging your cargo. To be extra sure, you can fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. When it comes to small household devices, following these rules will most likely be enough to guarantee their safe journey. However for large household devices there are a couple additional things to remember.
Before you even begin to secure your appliances for the shipment, you need to take out all the detachable parts as well as ship them separately. That goes for all the shelves as well as containers (in fridges, mainly) and racks (in dishwashers). During shipment, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which can damage either them or the appliance. Therefore it is better to take them out of the device, enclose them in some bubble wrap and ship individually.
After that you should secure the doors and all the cords and tubing. Make sure that your appliance is dry, because any leaking on the road might 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 transportation. The drum is the less durable part of the washing machine but a crucial one – breaking the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not positive that the doors will stay closed while on the road, you should still secure it with some tape to make sure it really won’t open during transportation. There is a number of circumstances during shipment that can require a transport provider to unexpectedly turn or stop the vehicle and you have to be positive that the devices won’t open even then. Doors that are not properly secured are easily breakable as the hinges are often quite fragile. When the doors are closed safely, you must think about cords and water lines. They should stay attached to the device (particularly if you have no professional knowledge about assembling household devices), but you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
When the doors as well as cords of your appliances are secured, you need to shield … your load from mechanical damages. That entails mostly wrapping the edges and protruding parts with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a cardboard (provided you are in possession of the original box or a container of similar dimensions) or wrap the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble wrap. This step is essential – remember that even what seems like a minor indentation in your appliance can break it irreparably.
Afterwards these steps, you can put the device in the hauler's car. Remember that fridges, dishwashers as well as washing machines have to be shipped vertically to prevent possible leaks. Also – when you are transporting household appliances in low temperatures (around 0°C) you have to wait at least 8 hours after coming to your destination before using it again.
