Smyrna MoversThe Smyrna movers at Buckhead know that sometimes part of a household move includes moving major appliances such as the refrigerator, whether it’s because the new house does not have one or you invested in a nice refrigerator for your current home and would like to bring it with you.

Here are some tips on how to prepare your refrigerator, so that it is easier for the Smyrna movers you hired to transport it:

  • In the weeks leading up to the move, try to eat any perishable items being kept in the fridge. Depending on how far across Georgia you are moving, you may not want to attempt transporting items that require refrigeration yourself. If there are still items left in the fridge before moving day, either dispose of them or see if friends would like to take anything.
  • The day before the move, turn the refrigerator off and unplug it from the wall to allow the evaporator time to defrost. This is also a good time to clean the inside of the refrigerator by wiping it down with a food-safe cleaner.
  • Secure loose items such as the shelves and ice tray using tape, or remove these completely and pack them separately.
  • Wrap the refrigerator in a blanket, or have the Smyrna movers wrap it in one of their moving blankets, to protect it from scuffs and scrapes during transport.
