Household devices is a really wide section of items, which influences what's the smartest way to secure them for shipment and also the smartest way to ship them. We can more or less divide household devices into two subgroups, both with its own smartest method of shipment – small household appliances and big household appliances. In the first subcategory you will place every device that can easily fit into a passenger car, for example: microwaves, mixers, juice makers, waffle makers, boiling pots and so on. These items you could without much effort ship inside your personal vehicle – no matter if it’s on one of the seats or in the trunk. Small household appliances are also more durable during transportation than the big household appliances. In the large household appliances subsection you will find machines like: freezers, washers, washing machines, tumble-driers as well as many more. None of them can be successfully shipped inside a regular car which is why it ought to be entrusted to professionals.
No matter which household appliances you want to transport, when you are securing your devices for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that you should abide by with every device. Firstly, it is best to transport appliances in their original packages. They match the dimensions of the appliance which will lessen the danger of any jolts on the road damaging your appliances. To be very , you can fill all the empty spaces with foam chips or bubble foil. With small household devices, following these rules will most likely be enough to guarantee their painless journey. But when it comes to big household devices there are a couple additional things to have in mind.
Before you even begin to prepare your devices for the shipment, you need to take out all the removable elements and transport them separately. That concerns all the shelves as well as drawers (from fridges, mainly) and baskets (in dishwashers). During transportation, they are especially unprotected against jolts, which could damage either them or the device itself. Therefore it is safer to take them out of the appliance, enclose them in some bubble wrap as well as ship individually.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cords and water lines. Make sure that your appliance is dry, because any leaking during shipment could damage it for good. If you have to ship a washing machine, it is wise to secure the drum, so that it cannot move on the road. The drum is the less durable element of the washing machine but an important one – damaging the drum may mean that you will need a new washing machine. The next step is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not certain that the doors will stay closed during the whole journey, you should nonetheless secure it with some tape to make sure it absolutely won’t open on the road. There are some situations during shipment that can require a hauler to suddenly turn or brake and you ought to be positive that the appliances won’t open even then. Doors that are not suitably secured are easily breakable because the hinges are often quite fragile. When the doors are secured, you must consider cords and water lines. They can stay connected to the device (particularly if you have no professional knowledge about assembling household devices), however you should bind them together (for example with some cord) to prevent them from tangling.
After the doors and cords of your device are secured, you need to protect your device from mechanical damages. That means … mostly securing the corners and protruding parts with some Styrofoam or cardboard. Next step is to either put your appliance in a box (if you have the original packaging or a container in similar size) or enclose the whole machine in a considerable layer of bubble wrap. This step is crucial – don’t forget that even what seems like a small dent on your device can damage it irreparably.
After these steps, you can put the device in the hauler's car. Don’t forget that fridges, dishwashers and washing machines have to be transported in an upward position to avoid possible leaks. Also – if you are shipping household appliances in very cold weather (around 0°C) you should wait at least 8 h after coming to your destination before turning it back on.
