DO MOVERS MOVE APPLIANCES?

Moving household appliances requires careful planning and laborious work, as it can be more complicated than moving furniture. Professional movers are experienced, skilled, and trained to move your appliances without damaging them. Our moving company provides services to carefully move your washer, dryer, and other valuable appliances. But first, check out our guide to prepare and disconnect major appliances step by step!

Packing and labeling boxes can be tiring, but it’s less daunting than moving bulky furniture and major appliances. Whether you plan a long-distance or local move, proper planning is required to move your heaviest items like your bed, wardrobe, desk, etc. These items can be complicated to move without prior experience, as the heavy lifting can easily damage the item or home.

Should you move major appliances?

Moving is a long process with many tiring tasks to fulfill. One of those tasks is moving bulky furniture and appliances. Before you decide to pack and move your belongings, you should decide if you truly want to move them.

If you have old, outdated household appliances with some technical issues, sometimes it’s best to get rid of them. But, if your appliances are brand new or recently purchased, it can be a good idea to relocate them to your new home. It’s also a good idea to take measurements to ensure that your appliances fit well into your new place.

More reasons to move large appliances:   

  • You are not required to leave the appliance in the current residence
  • It’s practical and functional
  • Fits well with the new residence

How to move an appliance without damaging the floor?

As a professional moving company, we often get asked about moving major appliances and the best way to protect them. Wooden floors and vinyl are prone to scratches. That’s why it’s important to be careful when moving large appliances. Marks on the wooden floorboard can be quite deep and difficult to fix. Appliances should be handled with special care. Always make sure that they are empty before lifting them and use proper moving equipment. 

We recommend using an appliance dolly or a moving trolly. It can also be helpful to get appliance moving stripes. They will secure your appliances and prevent any potential damage. Use towels to protect the floor from scratches. It’s a good idea to clean the ceramic or wood flooring before relocating appliances to your new home. Dust and dirt can generate more friction, so it’s best to clean everything properly and then bring major appliances to your new home or office area.
