Preparing Large Appliances for a Move

Planning a move is an exciting and stressful time. Preparing your possessions for that move can lean more toward the stressful, especially when it comes to large appliances. These items are expensive, potentially fragile, and not easily replaceable – so much can go wrong!

Here are a few tips for properly preparing your large appliances for your move – without all the stress:

Unplug and Disconnect

Your first step before moving your appliances is to disconnect them from any utility they may be connected to. Unplug the electricity. Disconnect the water supply. These may seem like common sense steps, but many homeowners overlook them.

Empty and Clean

Next, you’ll need to empty your dishwasher, fridge, oven, and any other appliances that may regularly hold items. Remove food items from your fridge and freezer. Empty your dishwasher. Take any pans out of your oven that you may store in the main cabinet or the drawer beneath. This will prevent damage to items and appliances.

Once items are removed, clean your appliance. Be sure to contact your manufacturer or read your manual to be sure you are doing so correctly. Some ovens have a self-cleaning feature. Some dishwashers do, too. Check to see how your appliance should be cleaned and follow those instructions.

Secure Your Appliances

Some large appliances have parts that will move and shift during transit, which may damage the appliance. It is important to remove or secure all small, moving parts so that this doesn’t happen. This includes removing trays, shelves, racks, hoses, and any other part of your large appliance that cannot be easily secured. Lids and drawers should be taped or corded closed to ensure that they don’t rattle or slam during the move and damage the appliance.

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth. Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.
