Removals Perth: How to move your home Washing Machine

Are you about to move home? As leading Perth removalists, we know that moving can be both exhilarating and crushingly stressful at the same time. While removalists such as ourselves can help you transport all your furniture to your new home, you are still left with the packing and organizing of your things.

 

The Removalists Perth Guide to Easy Washing Machine Moving

 

Because white goods such as washing machines are particularly susceptible to being damaged during transit, it’s important to secure all moving parts. This being the case when we go about removals in Perth, we advise homeowners to prepare washing machines for transport by first disconnecting all power and water inlets and outlets.

 

Once this is done, power cables should be taped securely to machines themselves, while any loose hoses and connectors should be placed in a padded bag inside the washing machine drum itself. This way, whichever Perth removalists you schedule to transport your goods, you won’t have to worry about losing any loose components in transit and make sure that they have full insurance to cover if the worst does happen.

 

Securing your Washing Machine Drum

 

Of course, when moving a washing machine, it’s the drum itself which needs to be secured as safely as possible prior to transport. This being the case, best practice when preparing for a move should always include securing your machines drum with dedicated transport bolts. These will lock your drum into place in order to prevent it being damaged or it damaging other internal components on its journey to your new home.

 

Lastly, the last thing you want when moving is to have your washing machine scratched or scuffed while on the road. Thankfully, with Perth removalists such as ourselves, we take every possible precaution to avoid damage to any item we pack and transport. Even better, you can assure safe transfer of white goods yourself by wrapping items securely in blankets and bubble wrap prior to moving.

 

Getting Ready to Move?

 

Are you planning a move? If so, regardless of whatever household items and furnishings you are moving with, always seek help from professional movers such as ourselves in order to ensure both your personal safety, as well as that of your personal possessions.
