Household devices is a very diversified category of items, which influences what's the safest way to shield them for shipment as well as the safest method of transporting them. We may more or less group household appliances into two subsections, both with individual safest method of transportation – minor household appliances as well as large household appliances. In the first subgroup you will place all the appliances that can effortlessly fit into a regular car, for example: microwaves, mixers, food processors, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These things you can without much effort transport in your personal vehicle – no matter if it’s on the back seat or in car booth. They are also more durable on the road than the large household appliances. In the big household devices subcategory you’ll find machines like: fridges, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be safely shipped inside a passenger vehicle which is why it must be entrusted to experts.
No matter which household appliances you want to transport, when it comes to securing your cargo for the time of transportation, there are a few rules that you should abide by with every device. First of all, it is best to ship devices in their original packages. These boxes match the size of the device and therefore can help to lessen the danger of any jolts on the road breaking your cargo. To be extra , you can fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. With minor household appliances, following these rules should be enough to ensure their painless journey. However for large household devices there are a few more rules to remember.
Before you even begin to secure your devices for the transportation, you have to remove all the detachable parts and ship them separately. That goes for all the shelves and drawers (in freezers, mainly) and racks (in dishwashers). When on the road, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which could break either them or the appliance. That is why it is better to take them out of the device, wrap them in some bubble wrap and transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cables and tubing. Make sure that your device is dry, as any leaking on the road could damage it irreversibly. If you are transporting a washing machine, it is wise to secure the drum, so that it cannot move during transportation. The drum is the most delicate part of the washing machine but an important one – breaking the drum usually means that you will need a new washing machine. The next point is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Even if you are certain that the doors will stay closed during shipment, you should still put some tape on it to make sure it absolutely won’t open on the road. There is a number of situations on the road that might demand a transport provider to suddenly turn or stop the vehicle and you have to be positive that the devices won’t open even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are prone to damages as the hinges are rarely very durable. After the doors are secured, you must think about cords as well as water lines. They should stay connected to the appliance (particularly if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), but you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from getting tangled.
When the doors as well as cords of your device are secured, you need to shield your device from dents and scratches. That entails mainly wrapping the corners and fragil … e parts with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either place your device in a cardboard (provided you have the original box or a container of similar dimensions) or wrap the whole appliance in a considerable layer of bubble foil. This part is one of the most important – remember that even a seemingly small indentation on your device might break it irreparably.
After these steps, you can put the device in the transport provider’s vehicle. Don’t forget that freezers, dishwashers as well as washing machines should be shipped in an upward position to avoid any leaks. Also – if you are transporting household devices in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you should wait at least eight hours after arriving to your destination before turning it back on.
