Loading And Fasten Delicate Appliances And Furniture

Furniture and appliances are some of the things in your house that can be hard and stressful to load and move safely without worrying about a few scratches and breakage especially if you are making a long distance move. For example, if you are moving a fridge, or a dishwasher, you will be worried that they will get a scratch here, and a scrape there. However, with the right tools and equipment, and the expertise of a qualified moving company, you will not have to worry that your expensive furniture and appliances will get damaged in the course of the move.

Here is a guideline on how to load, fasten, and move delicate appliances and furniture.

Loading

Loading is the process of lifting anything and placing it in a waiting automobile. The equipment and approach you use to load your delicate appliances and furniture determines whether or not these items get damaged.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

  • Use lifting tools and equipment: it is important to make use of appropriate lifting tools to load such items safely onto the moving truck. If you do not have the right ones, your moving company can provide upon request.
  • Do not load alone: While you could do all the loading by yourself, some of these appliances and furniture are both delicate and heavy and need to be handled with care. Always, get another person to help you lift and load the items safely.
  • Slide the items: Sometimes, it just is not advisable to carry or drag large and delicate items. Sliding them is a much safer and easier way to move large furniture and fragile appliances. You can design your sliders using plastic container covers, or even towels, blankets, etc.
  • Disassemble the appliances and furniture: Some appliances and furniture are best moved and loaded in their disassembled form.

Fastening

Appliances and furniture are some of the items you need to take care of when moving to a new home. There are several ways that you can fasten such items to ensure their safety until you get to your destination. Some of these ways include:

Using tape: Get a moving tape from any mover and use it to fasten all your fragile appliances and furniture. In addition, cords and ropes are better fastening materials to prevent any slight movement in the course of the move that can lead to significant damage.

Pads, cardboards and blankets: You will need to protect your items from scratches. You can do this by placing moving pads, blankets or cardboard between the appliances or furniture to cushion them against shocks and scrapes.

Loading and fastening fragile appliances and furniture can be a daunting task. However, if done well, it can protect your items from unnecessary damage. As such, it is important you acquire the right loading and fastening tools to stand a better chance. Take time to look for and hire the best moving company; this will ensure that your delicate appliances and furniture are loaded and fastened safely.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
