Preparing Your Appliances for Moving Day
1. Clean and Dry All Appliances

Begin by thoroughly cleaning each appliance. For refrigerators and freezers, defrost them at least 24 hours before the move, ensuring they are dry and free from moisture to prevent mold. Ovens and microwaves should be cleaned to remove any food residue. Wipe down washing machines and dryers, and leave the doors open for a few hours to air out.

2. Secure Loose Parts
Remove or secure any loose parts inside your appliances. Glass shelves in refrigerators, turntables in microwaves, and any removable racks or trays should be taken out and packed separately to avoid damage. Secure the drum using transit bolts to prevent any internal movement for washing machines.

3. Disconnect and Label Cables
Please safely disconnect your appliances from their power sources, water, and gas lines, following any specific instructions from the manufacturer. Coil and tape cables to the appliance or pack them separately, clearly labeled to ensure easy reinstallation in your new home.

4. Wrap and Protect
Use moving blankets or bubble wrap to protect your appliances from scratches and dents during the move. Pay extra attention to corners and protruding parts. Secure the wrapping with moving tape or straps.

5. Plan the Moving Path
Before moving day, plan the path that large appliances will take out of your home to the moving truck. Visit:
