Household appliances is a really large section of things, and that influences what's the safest means to shield them for shipment as well as the smartest method of transporting them. We can roughly arrange household appliances into two subcategories, each with individual best method of shipment – minor household devices as well as big household devices. In the first subgroup you’ll place every device that can effortlessly fit into a regular car, e.g. microwaves, mixers, juice makers, toasters, boiling pots as well as many more. These things you can safely transport inside your own vehicle – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in the trunk. Small household appliances are also more durable during transportation than the large household devices. In that subcategory you’ll come across devices like: fridges, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers and so on. None of them can be successfully shipped in a regular car which is why it has to be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household appliances you want to ship, when you are securing your devices for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that can be used with every device. First of all, it is best to ship devices in their original boxes. These boxes are best fitted to the size of the appliance and therefore can help to minimize the threat of some shocks during shipment breaking your appliances. To be extra safe, you can fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble wrap. When it comes to small household appliances, this will most likely be enough to guarantee their painless journey. But when it comes to large household appliances there are a couple additional things to have in mind.
Before you even begin to secure your devices for the transportation, you should take out all the removable parts as well as ship them separately. That goes for all the shelves and containers (from fridges, especially) and baskets (from dishwashers). During transportation, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which could damage either them or the appliance. Which is why it is safer to remove them from the appliance, wrap them in some bubble wrap and transport separately.
After that you should secure the doors and all the cords and water lines. Check if your device is dry, as any leaking on the road could damage it irreversibly. 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 most delicate element of the washing machine and also an important one – harming the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as stated 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 nonetheless secure it with some tape to be certain it absolutely won’t open during transportation. There is a number of situations during shipment that might require a hauler to suddenly turn or brake and you need to be positive that the devices stay closed even then. Doors that are not properly secured are prone to damages as 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 attached to the device (particularly if you have no 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.
After the doors as well as cables of your appliances are secured, you need to … shield your load from dents and scratches. That means mostly wrapping the corners as well as fragile parts with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either put your device in a box (provided you are in possession of the original box or a container of similar size) or wrap the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble wrap. This part is crucial – remember that even what seems like a minor indentation in your appliance might damage it for good.
After these steps, you are ready to place the device in the hauler's vehicle. Don’t forget that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines must be transported in an upward position to prevent possible leaks. Additionally – if you are transporting household appliances in low temperatures (around 0°C) you have to let it sit for at least eight h after arriving to your destination before using it again.
