Household devices is a very diversified category of products, which influences what's the best way to shield them for transportation and also the best method of transporting them. We may roughly divide household appliances into 2 subcategories, each with individual best way of shipment – small household devices as well as large household appliances. In the first subsection you’ll find every device that could effortlessly be transported in a regular car, e.g. microwaves, blenders, food processors, toasters, boiling pots and so on. These things you may effortlessly ship inside your personal vehicle – either on the back seat or in the trunk. Small household appliances also tend to be less breakable during shipment than the big household appliances. In the big household devices subgroup you’ll come across devices like: freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble-dryers as well as many more. Almost every one of them can be successfully shipped inside a passenger vehicle which is why it ought to be entrusted to professionals.
Regardless of which household device you have to transport, when it comes to securing your devices for the time of shipment, there are a couple of guidelines that are universal for every device. First of all, it is best to transport devices in their original cardboards. These boxes match the size of the device which can help to minimize the threat of some shocks on the road breaking your appliances. To be extra sure, you can fill all the empty spaces with Styrofoam or bubble foil. When it comes to minor household devices, following these rules will most likely be enough to ensure their painless journey. However for big household devices there are a few additional things to remember.
Ahead of beginning to prepare your appliances for the shipment, you should remove all the detachable parts and transport them individually. That goes for all the shelves as well as containers (from freezers, mostly) and baskets (in dishwashers). When on the road, they are particularly unprotected against jolts, which could break either them or the device itself. Which is why it is safer to remove them from the appliance, enclose them in layers of bubble wrap and transport individually.
The next step is to secure the doors and all the cables and water lines. Make sure that your appliance is dry, because any leaking during shipment might damage it irreversibly. If you are planning to ship a washing machine, it is best to secure the drum, to prevent it from moving during shipment. The drum is the most delicate part of the washing machine and also a crucial one – breaking the drum usually means permanent damage and a need to buy a new washing machine. The next step is, as mentioned before, securing the doors. Regardless of whether you are or are not positive that the doors will stay closed during shipment, you should still put some tape on it to be certain it absolutely cannot open during transportation. There is a number of situations on the road that might demand a transport provider to abruptly turn or stop the vehicle and you need to be positive that the appliances stay closed even then. Doors that haven’t been properly secured are prone to damages because the hinges are often quite fragile. When the doors are closed safely, you must think about cords as well as water lines. They can stay connected to the appliance (especially if you don’t have any expert knowledge about assembling household devices), however you might want to bind them together (for example with some cord) to keep them from tangling.
A … fter the doors as well as cords of your appliances are secured, you need to shield your load from dents and scratches. That entails mainly securing the edges as well as protruding elements with some bubble wrap or cardboard. Then you can either put your device in a box (provided you have the original packaging or a box in similar size) or enclose the whole machine in a thick layer of bubble wrap. This part is very important – note that even what seems like a minor indentation on your device might break it irreparably.
After mentioned steps, you can place the device in the hauler's car. Don’t forget that freezers, dishwashers and washing machines should be shipped in an upward position to avoid any leakages. Additionally – if you are transporting household devices in low temperatures (approx. 32°F) you should wait at least 8 hours after arriving to your destination before using it again.
