Household devices is a very large section of items, and that affects what's the safest way to shield them for shipment and also the best method of transporting them. We may roughly group household devices into two subcategories, all with its own safest method of shipment – small household devices and big household devices. In the first subgroup you will place every device that could safely fit into a regular car, like: microwaves, blenders, food processors, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These things you may easily transport in your own vehicle – either on the back seat or in car booth. They also tend to be less prone to damages during transportation than the big household devices. In the large household appliances subcategory you will find devices like: freezers, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers and so on. Almost every one of them can be safely shipped inside a passenger vehicle and therefore ought to be entrusted to experts.
No matter which household appliances you need to transport, when you want to prepare your devices for the time of transportation, there are a couple of guidelines that can be used with every item. First of all, it is best to ship appliances in their original cardboards. These boxes match the dimensions of the device and therefore can help to decrease the danger of any jolts during shipment destroying your appliances. To be extra safe, you should fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. With small household appliances, following these rules will most likely be enough to guarantee their painless journey. But when it comes to large household devices there are a couple more rules to have in mind.
Before you even begin to secure your appliances for the shipment, you should remove all the removable elements and transport them separately. That goes for all the shelves as well as containers (in freezers, especially) and racks (in dishwashers). When on the road, the removable elements would be particularly unprotected against jolts, which might damage either them or the device itself. Therefore it is safer to remove them from the device, enclose them in layers of bubble foil as well as transport individually.
After that you should secure the doors as well as all the cables and water lines. Check if your appliance is dry, as any leaking on the road could damage it irreversibly. If you have to ship a washing machine, it is wise to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during transportation. The drum is the less durable element of the washing machine but an important one – breaking the drum may mean permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next point is, as stated before, securing the doors. Even if you are convinced that the doors won’t open during shipment, you should nonetheless put some tape on it to make sure it really cannot open during transportation. There are some circumstances during shipment that can require a hauler to suddenly turn or brake and you ought to be certain that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are easily breakable because the hinges are often quite fragile. After the doors are closed safely, you must think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay attached to the appliance (especially if you have no expert knowledge about assembling household devices), but you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
After the doors and cords of your appliances are secured, you need to protect your cargo from mechanical damages. That … means chiefly wrapping the edges as well as protruding parts with layers of bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either place your appliance in a box (if you are in possession of the original packaging or a box in similar dimensions) or wrap the whole device in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This part is crucial – note that even what seems like a small dent in your device can damage it irreparably.
After these steps, you are ready to place the appliance in the hauler's vehicle. Remember that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines have to be shipped upwards to prevent any leaks. Additionally – when you are transporting household appliances in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you need to wait at least 8 hours after coming to your destination before using it again.
