Moving a refrigerator is tough as it is susceptible to damage and is a hassle to move.

Therefore, Supercheap Interstate Removalists have come up with these tips to help you move a fridge safely.

Be ready with equipments such as the screwdriver, drill, measuring tape, dolly with straps, tape/ rope, and moving blankets.

  1. Clean
    Remove all the items from the refrigerator. Plan beforehand and finish every eatable in the fridge. Clean the surfaces once everything it is empty. You can clean the surfaces using a mixture of water and baking soda.

  2. Defrost
    The next step is to defrost the unit. Melt the remaining ice to prevent leakage. Switch off the fridge at least a few hours before the move. You can use moisture absorbents inside the refrigerator to avoid odours.

  3. Stick to the user manual
    Disconnect the fridge according to the user manual. Pay attention to the water filter and ice maker while disconnecting them.

  4. Stick the cord and the drawers
    After the fridge is entirely unplugged and disconnected, roll up its cord and tap it to the back of the refrigerator. You can either tape the drawers and glass shelves or remove it to store it safely.

  5. Secure the doors
    Secure the doors using ropes or bungee cords. You can also remove the doors as per the user manual.

  6. Wrap the fridge
    Use moving blankets to warp the exterior of the refrigerator. Prevent scratches by cushioning it properly.

  7. Measure the fridge
    Measure the length and width of the fridge to create a moving plan. Use the measuring tape to measure the width of the refrigerator and the doors of your house through which you have to move the refrigerator. Make an appropriate moving plan.

  8. Get rid of the obstacles
    Remove every obstacle that gets in the way such as the doors, railings of the stairs or any furniture.

  9. Strap the fridge
    Slide the fridge and strap it onto the dolly. Position yourself so that you can slide the refrigerator onto the dolly, then slide it till it fits the dolly. Keep your back straight and knees bent while doing so. Once done, strap the fridge to the dolly and tighten it. D do this alone.

  10. Move it carefully
    Move the refrigerator slowly and carefully by tilting it back. Make sure that the bottom and top of the fridge is evenly positioned on the dolly. You need someone to help you with this process too. Do not tip the refrigerator more than 45 degrees, unless you are going down the stairs. Be very cautious if you have to take the stairs. Do not push it down the stairs but instead pull the dolly back toward you and keep the fridge tilted at an angle of 45 degrees. Move it slowly while the other person makes sure to position the refrigerator well.

  11. Loading the fridge
    Use the plank or platform to guide the fridge into a moving truck.

  12. Secure it in the truck
    Do not lay the refrigerator on its side. Secure it using additional straps along the sides and top of the fridge.

Following these tips should help you move the refrigerator without any trouble. Of course, it is always advisable to hire quality removalists instead of doing it yourself as they are trained and can move the refrigerator without damaging the fridge or injuring themselves.
