StoveWhen preparing large appliances for your move, there are special precautions you need to take. I recommend consulting the owner's manual that was included with each appliance when it was purchased before you decide whether to hire a professional service. Keep in mind that if you're not hiring a professional mover and the appliance doesn't work when it reaches your new home, the mover will not take responsibility for it.

So, read your manual first, then, whether you prepare the appliances or have a professional do it, take a look at this quick step-by-step for tips and tricks in preparing your fridge, stove, washing machine and dryer for your move.

Some important things to remember. Disconnect your appliance a day or two before moving. Water from the washing machine and ice maker need time to empty. During the winter months when freezing is possible, having all the water removed is IMPORTANT! Fully disconnect the hot/cold water lines from the washing machine and discard. Great time to replace them and get new ones at destination. Also for the fridge or freezer, besides emptying them completely put a small tub of baking soda in them to absorb any moisture and prevent mildew. Carriers will not be liable for this. Any questions…call or email me. Chris (800) 403-9764

While preparing for the move we often try to stack all our appliances without thinking for a single moment what will happen to them and their performance. It is best to read their manual while packing and if possible dismantle them at the time of packing.
