The first transportation of the washing machine is normally carried out at the time of purchase. This means that you do not have to worry about your property’s safety. In the course of the delivery, appliances are packed with care so that they don’t get damaged during transport. This is the best option because you don’t need to search for removalists or pay for delivery. The seller will take care of everything, and ensure your safety.
Naturally, when you are transporting an old washing machine on yourself, things are significantly more complex since you need to ensure its security and safety during transport.
Cleaning the washer before transport
Packaging is the first and most crucial stage. Place the washing machine into its original box, filling the whole space with foam rubber or foam. If you don’t happen to have a box for your washing machine and other components of its transport, as is often the case, try to come up with an appropriate replacement.
This plan will help you prepare your washer to transport it safely and efficiently.

- Make sure to cover all moving parts to ensure that one gets hurt while transportation the machine with the commercial moving company.
- Verify that the washer is free of liquids. Examine the drain pump and pipes for water.
- First, disconnect the hose from the water lines and electrical grid. Although it sounds absurd and bizarre, there have been times when people have forgotten to disconnect the hoses during transporting.
After you’ve completed this, move on to another crucial step – fixing the tank. In this regard, we suggest shipping bolts. If they’re lost then you can make your materials. It is possible to remove the bolts holding the top panel together, fill it with foam rubber, cloth, or foam and secure it in the original position. The tank is now secure.
The doors should be secured in place, even though they have fixings, with rope, duct tape or. Put a piece of cloth over the washing machine, and tie it with rope. Carefully roll up the drain hose, secure it using duct tape, and put it in bags, or wrap it in a soft cloth.

If the washer is to be transported in the back of trucks, it’s quite easy to take it off. What about transporting appliances in a saloon automobile, for example?
