How to Move a Refrigerator

A fridge is a bulky, heavy thing. Moving it takes some care and know-how. Here’s what to do:

  1. Unplug – unplug the electricity and turn off the water connection. Do this at least fifteen minutes before moving the fridge.
  2. Clean – take out any food and wipe off the top of the fridge so you don’t get dust in your eyes.
  3. Take measurements – make sure the fridge will fit through whatever door or hall you plan on taking it through.
  4. Fasten the doors – use rope or a bungee cord to secure the doors in place so they don’t open mid-move.
  5. Use a dolly – a fridge is too heavy to pick up, especially if it’s a decade or two old. Get a dolly, and lift the fridge onto it.
  6. Secure the fridge – use rope to tie the fridge to the dolly.

Okay, you’re ready to move it!  And check out our website if you have other difficult things to move.
