The transportation of the refrigerator should be carried out strictly according to the instructions made by the manufacturer, so that in the end the refrigerator does not suffer breakdowns and continues to work flawlessly. Transportation of such equipment – new or already used, is a rather complicated process that requires professional competence and great attention at all stages of transportation.

If you want to transport the equipment yourself, you should find out all the nuances of transporting a refrigerator from one place to another.

How to prepare an existing refrigerator for shipping

It often happens that if refrigerators are transported carelessly, they can somehow suffer on the way. It is necessary to provide the safest conditions for the transportation of such equipment, only in this case you will be sure that the refrigerator will arrive safe and fully working.

First, you need to take care of the packaging of the refrigerator, since it is very dangerous to transport equipment without it. The best option would be to use the factory box with all the protective packaging that was inside. If you have thrown away or lost the box from the refrigerator, one of the following packaging materials will do:

  • any foam;
  • cardboard sheet;
  • bubble film;
  • scotch or packing tape;
  • carton boxes or other rigid packaging

It is advisable to prepare the day before the cargo transportation:

  1. First, unload all food from the refrigerator;
  2. Next, turn off and leave the refrigerator to defrost;
  3. Clean the surface of products and possible dirt;
  4. Sections that are removed from the refrigerator should be packed separately;
  5. Make sure there is no moisture left in the refrigerator – it must be dry.

According to the conclusion, it is necessary to fix all the elements of the refrigerator: wires and refrigerator doors. There will definitely be some shaking during shipping. You don’t want everything to suddenly open during transportation?

We carry out cargo transportation of a new refrigerator

In the case when the refrigerator needs to be transported from the store to the house, the store usually handles such delivery. But there are also cases when the store itself is not able to organize the transportation of equipment and you have to pick it up yourself. In such circumstances, we recommend contacting the Don-Trans transport company. Our experts will move your refrigerator quickly and carefully.

Regardless of how you decide to transport the new refrigerator from the store, its transportation must take place according to the following plan:

  1. Transportation of the refrigerator is always carried out in the vertical position of the equipment – this is a strict recommendation of all manufacturers.
  2. The refrigerator during transportation must be provided with good shock protection, which consists of foam that covers the corners and covers the equipment.
  3. To reduce vibrations and soften shocks, the doors and important elements of the refrigerator are wrapped in foil.
  4. When transporting the refrigerator, it is securely fixed using very strong fasteners in the back of the car.

What should be done with the refrigerator after transportation

It is very important to remember that the refrigerator, like other overall equipment, should not be turned on for a couple of hours after transportation. The amount of time depends on the method of transportation of the refrigerator, and on the temperature regime in which the transportation was carried out.

Some manufacturers give the following recommendations:

  • when the refrigerator was transported at a warm temperature outside, it should stand off for about 4 hours, but if the cargo was transported during the cold season, then the refrigerator should not be turned on for about 8 hours.
  • in the case when the recommendations from the manufacturers for transportation were violated during the transportation (if suddenly the refrigerator was transported in a horizontal position), you will have to wait 8 hours in warm weather and about a day in cold weather.

What are the reasons for the unstable operation of the refrigerator after its transportation

In most cases, if the refrigerator is unstable or does not work at all, the shipment was not carried out correctly. Some breakdowns can be put in the following list:

  • the refrigerator was turned on immediately after it was transported;
  • due to possible shaking during transportation, liquid was shaken up inside the refrigerator;
  • the refrigerator was not securely fixed and was subjected to impacts or possibly even dropped;
  • incorrect fixation of refrigerator parts during transportation;
  • The refrigerator was in a horizontal position during transport.

That’s all the recommendations for organizing and transporting your refrigerator. Secure your equipment in advance for successful and safe cargo transportation or contact our Don-Trans company and we will do everything ourselves at the highest level!
