Our movers are not licensed and trained to connect any electrical item safely. For your safety, please hire a professional help who will ensure that those things are safe to use after comparing them to the power grid.

The most moving companies will not disconnect or prepare your appliances to move them, so you may choose to hire a licensed professional or do it yourself. If you decide to move them yourself, here are some tips to help move your appliances safely:

  • Turn off water, gas, and electricity ahead of time for safety reasons
  • For each appliance be sure to unplug, clean and secure any detachable or moving parts
  • Tape plugs to each machine, so they don’t get pulled or tripped on
  • Unplug appliances that use water, such as a dishwasher, washing machine or refrigerator, at least 24 hours ahead of time, drain them, and clean thoroughly
  • Defrost the freezer in your refrigerator, which may take longer than 24 hours, then clean and dry it afterward
  • To connect a dryer to natural gas, please check with a professional about how to safely disconnect it from the wall
  • Before you move your appliances out of the home, protect your floors. You can use cardboard, moving mats/blankets, or plywood to protect tile or hardwood from damage.
  • Remove any cabinetry or moldings from the area as well as any boxes that might clutter your space.

Pack any accessories, hoses or vents along with the manuals and warranties for the appliances in a marked box. To install your appliances as soon as possible, this box should be readily accessible during your move.
