From refrigerators and stoves to washers and dryers, bringing large appliances to your new home is no problem so long as you have them disconnected prior to pickup. To ensure this is done safely, it’s best to follow the owner’s manual instructions or, better yet, have a service take care of the job.
Divide and conquer
It’s also necessary to remove smaller pieces from large appliances prior to the move. If you have an electric range, remove loose coils and pack them separately. For local moves, glass tops on refrigerators can be removed and padded during transport. But if you plan to ship or store these pieces, they must be crated ahead of time. Of course, before any of these is done, it’s important to defrost and thoroughly dry your refrigerator and freezer one or two days prior to your departure.
