Moving Appliances

In preparing large appliances for your move, it is important that they be clean and dry to avoid the build up of mildew and mold. Grease left on a stovetop will catch dust and dirt, and unfortunately, leave spots on anything that it touches. Dry out refrigerators and freezers, especially those that contain an ice maker and are scheduled to be serviced by a third party service provider.

Dishwasher
Clean and dry thoroughly. Disconnect and drain hoses. Leave the door open for a few days prior to the move. Wrap dry hoses in towels and packing paper and place inside the dishwasher.

Washing Machine
Clean and dry thoroughly. Disconnect and drain hoses. Wrap metal connector ends of hoses in a towel and place inside washer. Secure the tub following the manufacturer's guidelines to prevent swaying. Note: If you don't have the manufacturers guidelines, you can purchase a washer kit with a manual that provides instructions on how to secure the tub by tightening down the tub using screws. If you prefer not to do it yourself, a third party service provider can be arranged for you by your professional moving estimator. Upon arrival to your new home, have the washer installed by a qualified installer.

Dryer
Before cleaning, unplug or turn off the dryer from electrical power and clean the lint screen. Prior to plugging in your electric dryer at your new residence, have your power supply checked for the correct electrical requirements. Tip: If you are moving a gas dryer, the appliance should be disconnected and the gas line capped off by a qualified technician. The driver and the crew members are not qualified to perform this service. Your professional estimator can make the arrangements for you.

Stove Top/Range/Oven
Clean thoroughly. Detach all removable parts and pack safely in a box, clearly marked with the contents. If you are moving a gas range, it must be disconnected prior to moving day by a qualified service technician. The gas line must be properly secured also. If you have an electric range, generally no servicing at your present residence is required. When arriving at your new residence with your gas range, you will need a qualified gas installer to check your gas supply, connect the gas line, seal any openings, light the pilot and handle any other hook-up requirements.
