How To Move A Fridge Freezer
Moving a fridge freezer in your own home can be a stress, let alone trying to move one from one location to another. Whether you are buying a new fridge freezer, selling your old one, or just moving house, you will likely need to find a fridge freezer moving service to help you. Normally, this would have to involve hours of searching through results pages and phonebooks, but with Shiply, the quotes come to you!
On our platform, you can find thousands of moving services ready to bid on your job. Shiply provides a space for you to collect and compare quotes to move a fridge freezer, often at discounts up to 75% less than standard rates, and all it takes is a few minutes to get started.
How Much Does It Cost To Move A Fridge Freezer?
It can be tough to give a cost estimate to move a fridge freezer due to the various factors that can affect pricing. The quickest way to get a quote is to simply list your item on Shiply, but if you want an idea of what can affect the pricing of a fridge freezer move, see below:
Distance - The general rule of thumb when it comes to distance and cost is that longer distances will cost you more, but the cost per mile will drop so it isn’t so expensive.
Size/Weight - Size and weight are the main determining factors when trying to calculate the cost of moving a fridge freezer. The larger or heavier your fridge freezer is, the bigger the vehicle requirements will be, and generally, larger vehicles cost more to operate. You should also consider whether multiple helpers will be needed to move the appliance if it is particularly large.
Timings - If there is a specific time or date that your fridge freezer needs to be transported by then you may need to spend a little extra to guarantee this. Most of the drivers on Shiply are trying to fill their vehicles on journeys they are already making, so the more flexible you can be with fitting into their schedule, the cheaper your fridge freezer move will be.
Locations - If the pick-up and delivery spots for your fridge freezer transport are particularly remote or hard to reach then this may end up being a little bit more expensive than you are used to.
How Can Shiply Help Find Fridge Freezer Moving Services?
Usually, searching for a fridge freezer mover can be a stressful task. You would need to locate and phone up individual companies, collecting quotes manually and comparing them. Our aim is to streamline this process, letting you sit back and have the quotes come to you.
All we need from you to get started is some basic information about your requirements such as the size of the fridge freezer that needs transporting, the collection and delivery locations, and the ideal dates for moving. Once you submit these, transport companies will start sending you quotes within 30 minutes. Shiply gives you one space where you can receive multiple quotes and compare them. We use a feedback system so that you can read previous reviews of fridge freezer moving services, and have a messaging system so that you can ask them more specific questions you may have, all of which help you to make the best decision when selecting a mover.
Further, using Shiply can not only be great for a less stressful moving experience but also a cheaper one! Drivers on our platform are ‘going there anyway’ and just want to ensure they fill up all available space in their vehicles before making a trip. For this reason, their quotes can be up to 75% less than standard as costs have already been factored in. Not only this but using our platform is also great for the environment as it cuts down on the number of unnecessary delivery vehicles on the roads.
Preparing For Your Fridge Freezer To Be Moved
If you have received a few quotes and selected one to move ahead with, then the next step is to prepare your fridge freezer for collection. We suggest the following:
Documents - If you are selling the item then safety documents may need to be supplied with it. Ensure any paperwork is handled before collection to avoid any last-minute delays.
Working Condition - Ensure that everything about the fridge is operating as expected so that you know what state it should be in when it arrives and can ascertain if anything is wrong.
Cleaning - We highly recommend cleaning your fridge freezer thoroughly before it is picked up. Food waste can hide in all spots in a fridge, and neither you nor the driver wants
Photographs - After cleaning, you should ensure that high-quality, time-stamped photographs are taken of the fridge freezer so that there is evidence of its condition before it was picked up. This will come in handy in the unlikely event that the fridge freezer is damaged in transit.
Packing - You don’t want anything moving around, either inside the fridge or in the van in general. Make sure nothing is loose inside the fridge, and that the appliance itself is strapped down or to the side of a vehicle so that it is not moving around, thus reducing the risk of damage.
What To Do After Delivery
When your fridge freezer has been successfully delivered, you will want to check it over for any damage and ensure that it is in working condition (or at least in the expected condition). Any problems should be raised immediately with your chosen fridge freezer mover.
We also ask that you leave a review for the fridge freezer transporter who carried out your shipment so that future users of our platform can know what to expect from them.
