Once your appliances are disconnected, follow these 9 steps to successfully move them:
Wash and sweep the area around the appliance so that it does not risk being scratched or moving dust or dirt when you move it.
Take this opportunity to thoroughly clean the interior of your device as well as the parts that are difficult to access.
Remove the removable parts (stove grates, refrigerator shelves, microwave tray, etc.) and package them separately.
Wrap the hoses of your washer in a towel and place them in the machine.
Bend the power cords of your appliances and secure them with tape.
Fasten the appliance doors with straps so that they remain closed during transport.
Protect each device with a cover attached with straps.
To move the devices, get a handy trolley and sturdy belts, or get help from professional movers.
Always use solid grips to lift the appliance (for example, do not use the door handle or the back of your oven).
