3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Moving Appliances to Your New Home

The appliances in your home, such as the dishwasher and refrigerator, have cost you hundreds of dollars, so it’s natural to feel reluctant to part with them. If you decide to take your appliances with you to your new home, hiring a professional mover can significantly reduce the risk of their getting damaged during the relocation.

However, there are some instances when bringing your appliances with you might not be the best strategy. To determine whether or not you should take these big items with you to your new home, here are 3 questions to think about:

1. Are You Willing to Hire Professional Movers to Help Move the Appliances?

Your large appliances may seem strong enough to withstand the relocation, but in reality, their electronic parts can easily suffer damage if you don’t pack and move them with care. Professional movers have the experience and expertise to do this correctly for you and they can help:

  • Move your dishwasher by disconnecting all the hoses, draining them, and allowing the appliance to dry fully. If your dishwasher is still wet when you move, it may suffer from mold or mildew buildup.
  • Disconnect your gas stove from the gas line and seal any openings to avoid the risk of a house fire.
  • Remove any loose parts from your refrigerator and pack them separately

In all the busyness of packing up, taking these extra steps and precautions can cause you unwanted hassle and frustration. If you aren’t willing to hire professional movers to help move your appliances, then it may be best to leave them behind.

2. Could Parting With Your Appliances Boost Your Home’s Sale Price?

One of the biggest reasons you should consider leaving your appliances behind is that they could help you sell your home faster and boost its value. First time homebuyers often don’t have any of these appliances and so may be willing to give a property with the latest appliances priority over those that don’t.

How you should take advantage of this: Use your stainless steel refrigerator or gas stove as a bargaining chip when creating your listing. Your realtor can assess your home’s value based on the condition of your appliances and you may earn more from your sale!

3. Do You Want to Keep Your Moving Costs Low?

From packing up your items to hiring professional movers, relocations come with many expenses. Though you may carefully plan your budget and anticipate every expenditure, you may find that moving your appliances could increase your costs significantly due to their weight and size.

Tip from our professional movers: When you compare the cost of unhooking, loading, shipping and reinstalling your appliances to the cost of buying new ones, you may find that the latter option could be much more cost effective!
