Household devices is a truly large section of products, which influences what's the safest means to shield them for shipment as well as the smartest method of shipment them. We could roughly arrange household devices into two subsections, all with individual best way of shipment – minor household devices as well as big household devices. In the first subsection you will find all the appliances that can effortlessly fit into a passenger car, e.g. microwaves, blenders, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These things you can without much effort ship inside your personal car – either on one of the seats or in car booth. Small household appliances also tend to be less breakable on the road than the big household devices. In that subcategory you’ll find machines like: fridges, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers and so on. None of them may be successfully shipped inside a regular car which is why it has to be entrusted to experts.
Regardless of which household appliances you want to ship, when it comes to securing your cargo for the time of transportation, there are a couple of guidelines that you should abide by with every appliance. Firstly, it is safest to transport devices in their original boxes. They are best fitted to the size of the appliance which will minimize the danger of some shocks on the road breaking your devices. To be extra sure, you can fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble wrap. When it comes to small household appliances, following these rules will most likely be enough to ensure their safe journey. But when it comes to big household appliances there are a couple more things to remember.
Ahead of beginning to prepare your devices for the shipment, you should take out all the removable elements as well as ship them separately. That goes for all the shelves as well as containers (in freezers, especially) and racks (from dishwashers). During shipment, they would be especially unprotected against jolts, which could damage either them or the device itself. That is why it is safer to remove them from the appliance, enclose them in some bubble wrap and transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors as well as all the cords and tubing. Make sure that your device is dry, as any leaking during transportation might 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 – damaging 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. Even if you are positive that the doors will stay closed while on the road, you should still put some tape on it to make sure it absolutely cannot open during transportation. There is a number of circumstances during shipment that might require a driver to abruptly turn or brake and you must be positive that the devices stay closed even then. Doors that haven’t been properly secured are easily breakable as the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are closed safely, you ought to consider cords and water lines. They should stay connected to the device (especially if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), however you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from tangling.
After the doors as well as cables of your appliances are secured, the next step is to protect your load from mechanical damages … . That entails mainly securing the corners as well as fragile parts with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Then you can either place your appliance in a box (provided you are in possession of the original packaging or a container in similar size) or wrap the whole appliance in a thick layer of bubble wrap. This part is very important – note that even a seemingly minor dent in your appliance can break it for good.
After these steps, you are ready to place the appliance in the hauler's car. Don’t forget that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines must be transported vertically to avoid possible leakages. Also – when you are shipping household appliances in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you need to wait at least eight hours after arriving to your destination before using it again.
