The crib is a household appliance we can’t do without. There are many foods that need to be kept cold, and the refrigerator is perfect for that. And if the current one runs out, we head to the store to buy a new one. But not everyone knows what to do with it after buying it.
Transportation is not as trivial as it seems
When an old refrigerator reaches the end of its life, it needs to be replaced with a new one. We often need to see that one, so we buy a fridge in a brick-and-mortar store instead of online. Here it can also be bought, paid for and taken away immediately. But this can be a stumbling block and not everyone knows how to do it. It may seem like a complicated process, but if you don’t clean it properly before transporting it, it can get seriously damaged.
Remove all drawers too, whether they are made of glass or plastic. In transit, the doors may open and damage parts that you will no longer be able to purchase for replacement parts. So don’t hesitate to remove everything you can, from small egg compartments to large fruit and vegetable drawers.
Call moving services
While in some cases it is possible to move a refrigerator horizontally with extra care, it is generally not recommended. This is because it may cause some of the parts to become dented, compressor oil to enter the refrigeration system and so on. Transportation in vertical form is therefore much more convenient and does not risk such complications.
Once you get the refrigerator to its destination, let it rest for a few hours as well. The best way to do this is to leave it in place for a full day before plugging it in. Otherwise, it could fail very quickly. This is because the oil from the compressor should slowly get back into place after the fridge has been handled and actively overflowing. Once its level has stabilised, the fridge can be plugged into the mains. A few hours later, it can be filled with food. Try to transport the fridge as little as possible. This is because any such process can reduce its lifespan.
