What is the best way to move a refrigerator?
If you are wondering how to move or transport a large fridge freezer in the best way, consider booking a dedicated van. With our Van Delivery Service, you get a vehicle reserved just for your shipment. This makes it the safest and most efficient refrigerator moving service. When moving a fridge to a different location, you should clean it out and remove any movable parts to prevent damage in transit.
What is the van capacity for moving a fridge freezer in Europe?
We offer two types of vans for moving a fridge freezer across Europe:
  • Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity
  • Curtain-side van: 410 x 210 x 230 cm or 19 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity (with tail-lift only 700 kg)
Measure the dimensions carefully so that we can arrange the right van and refrigerator moving company for your particular needs.
Can you lay a fridge down or sideways for transport?
Although it is possible to transport a fridge on its side, it is highly recommended to transport it in an upright position. If you lay the fridge on its back or side, compressor oil will flow into the cooling tubes and may not drain properly once the refrigerator moves back to an upright position. Consequently, your refrigerator may stop working properly or break down completely.
Our Van Delivery Service is a great solution for transporting a refrigerator as there are no strict packaging restrictions and the vehicle only carries your goods. You can arrange the refrigerator and other items in the van however you wish.
Will the driver of the refrigerator moving company help with loading or unloading?
Loading and unloading assistance are additional features that are not included in the online price. If you need extra help or special equipment, please request this during the booking process. You can opt for partial or full assistance when booking fridge freezer moving services through our platform.
How long should a refrigerator rest after the moving service?
You should let the appliance stand upright, unplugged, for 4 to 8 hours after the refrigerator moving service to allow the oil to settle back down in its compressor. Be careful not to switch the fridge on too soon as any blockages in the refrigeration system may impair its cooling capacity.
Can you move a freezer while frozen or with food inside?
You should clear the contents of the freezer and defrost it before transport. A freezer full of food or excess ice will add extra weight, making it harder to move. You can use cooling boxes with ice packs to store any frozen food in the meantime. Defrost the fridge freezer for at least 24 hours before the moving service and make sure the inside is clean.
