5 Things to Consider When Moving Your Fridge

Moving household appliances is an intricate affair. Most of the household electrical appliances are very expensive and they should be handled with a lot of care. The fridge is considered as one of the most delicate and heavy domestic machines. Ignorance and inexperience are to blame for damaging your fridge when shifting.

What are the necessary precaution measures you need to put in place to ensure its safety?

They are;

  • Unplug from the socket 

You should start by switch off your fridge power supply and unplug it from the socket. It is wise to do that several hours or a day prior to moving. This will give it enough time to defrost as well as cool down. You can never move this kind of home appliance when it’s still connected to the power since it can result in short circuiting.


  • Make sure its empty 

You cannot afford to risk moving your fridge with all its contents inside. On the contrary you must remove everything from your fridge before thinking of moving it an inch.According to Perth removalists those who have defied the odds end up counting their huge losses. It is better to avoid unnecessary losses as a result of carelessness. This should be a good excuse to clean your fridge comprehensively so that when you get to your new home you save time and energy.


Moving a Fridge

  •  Dismantle the shelves 

Preparing the refrigerator when moving requires you to pay attention to simple things that you deem unimportant. Moving the fridge with its shelves fixed can lead to breaking of several parts. When dismantling the shelves you should be very careful to avoid damages. If you are unsure of how to do it contact 2Easy removals team for assistance. It’s better to be safe than sorry.


  • Wrap it safely 

The process of wrapping the fridge should start with closing, locking the doors securely. They can be a nuisance when they keep flapping open when moving. To avoid that you should find soft materials to tie your fridge to prevent damages and scratches.


  • Moving it 

Moving the fridge from one point to another is not a one man’s task. Moving it will require an extra hand regardless of whether you are using equipment such as a trolley to move it. For safety measures you should think of hiring experienced Perth removalists to make it that bit easier for you.
