However, if you are on a tight budget, you might be considering moving your fridge on your own. Now a fridge is quite heavy, and if your house is multi-story, the job will get even more complicated. However, if you take some precautions, you will be able to move the appliance safely, without doing any damage to it or yourself.

First of all, switch off your fridge and clean it thoroughly. Once that’s done, remove the interior shelves and wrap them properly. If your fridge has wheels on it, it will be easier to move it around. Otherwise, it’s a good idea to put a large piece of cardboard underneath it so that it doesn’t scratch the floor when you are moving it.

After that, cover your fridge in a professional packing wrap and a blanket before securing everything with packing tape. The two protective layers will ensure that your kitchen appliance remains safe during transit.

Now that your fridge is completely covered, you would want to place a moving trolley beneath it so it can be moved easily. Use a strap to faster the fridge to the cart. At this stage, more than one person will be required.

After that, you will have to load the fridge in a large truck, ideally one with a loading ramp. Once the fridge is inside the truck, make sure the vehicle moves steadily so that the upright position of the appliance is maintained.

As a cofounder and business owner of Move 4 Less, my passion is to deliver the highest quality of moving services in the industry. My varied background has thought me the value of seeking new challenges, working hard, keeping customers happy and focus on success. In 2002, I got my first taste in the moving industry, working for Nationwide Moving&Storage. For a little over two years I worked in a number of frontline and management positions, learning the ins and outs of the moving industry. The business is now one of the largest moving companies in the Las Vegas metropolitan area. I also had some time in between to open, manage and sell few restaurants and retail business. I continue to invest in Realestate and any other interesting business opportunity.
