by Best Moves In DFW We love moving you!

Moving out with the old, in with the new might be way easier for you than the equipment still lazing inside your apartment. As you plan this big move, accepting change for the better and encouraging your new version to immerse in the best of what life has to offer, you must be wondering about those large appliances you have and if movers move them. If you are still worried about how I will carry all the equipment to the new place of residence, hold your horses! In this article, we are going to take the burden off your shoulders by explaining what movers can do for you and how you can prepare your appliances for the same.


Do movers move appliances?

As an appliance moving company, just the way the name speaks for itself, these professional movers do move appliances such as washing machines, ovens, dryers, and refrigerators. If you want to be on the safe side, ask your mover beforehand because each operates in a different way.

Appliance Moving

Tips To Prepare Your Appliances For Your Upcoming Move



To prepare your refrigerator for the upcoming move, you should keep it unplugged for at least 24 hours before the appliance moving company arrives.

If you have an ice maker, disconnect it from the electricity and water. Also, do not forget to turn off the water valve before disconnecting and drain all the water in the lines.

Make sure you have removed all food and other eatables from both the refrigerator and the freezer. Next, clean it inside out.

For the freezer, place a towel inside overnight to soak up excess moisture, if any, when it thaws.


Washing Machine and Dryer

If the professional movers will disconnect and reconnect the washer and dryer, the only chore you’ll be left with is to clean both of them thoroughly.

Please Note: It’d be wise to catch on a professional’s help, especially if you have an older washer and dryer.


Stoves and Dishwasher

Generally, you won’t need professional movers to move your stove and dishwasher.

But, if you need help to move them for any reason, make sure they are well-prepared for the move.

It’s always recommended to let a professional come out and properly prepare these items for the move. Again you can D.I.Y but it’s not recommended.

Like other appliances, you own, giving them all a good clean-up before moving is a must, especially if moving it in the storage section.


What about small appliances including coffee makers and toaster ovens?

Yes, movers will move these too.

These items should be cleaned properly, especially if you’re moving them back into the storage area.

Small appliances should be wrapped from all sides and completely protected with packing paper, and placed either individually into small boxes or together in medium boxes. They should not move to and fro inside the boxes and they should be tightly packed in the box and must be surrounded by wads of packing paper.



Yes, movers will move barbeques, but movers will not move the propane. Propane is a highly flammable combustible, and it can explode inside of the moving truck. There is evidence in the past as a reference for such kind of dreadful incidences causing major injuries and fatalities.

If you are moving it yourself, DO NOT keep the propane attached to the barbeque. Make sure you remove the propane and either move it separately in another car or hand it over to someone or to the place you fill it up at.

Apart from the propane, you also want to give a nice clean-up to your barbeque very thoroughly before moving.


The Bottom Line

With that, we hope moving shouldn’t be a hassle, the way it might have appeared in the first place. With, Last Minute Movers in Mansfield, your equipment is going to be in safe hands. Wish you a safe and happy move! Keep going!
