How to prepare a stove for safe transport

With the Van Delivery Service, you will not have specific packaging guidelines to follow, so you will be able to place the item in the vehicle as you see fit. However, to protect your appliance, we recommend preparing it for transport and using straps to ensure it doesn’t move during transit.

Follow these steps to prepare your stove before the moving service:

  • Clean the stove, passing a degreaser on the surface so you can get a good grip on it later.
  • Remove any detachable part, including the oven rack. Each part should be packed separately, but we recommend labelling them so you can easily reassemble everything afterwards.
  • Disconnect the stove, whether it has a gas or electric source. We don’t recommend doing this step yourself; hiring a professional would be best. In your new home, you will have to repeat this process to reconnect everything.
  • Slide the stove out of its corner, placing a moving mat or cardboard on the floor to avoid scratches.
  • Use a rope or strap to secure the oven door and drawers closed.
  • Having a dolly would be very useful for moving the stove around the house and to the truck.

FAQ – Best way of moving a stove

Can you transport a stove on its back?
It is possible to transport a stove on its back, but it is preferable to move it standing upright or laying on its side. This is because all the electric cords and gas connectors are placed in the back of the stove, so it would be best to avoid transporting it on its back if possible.
There is a greater risk of damage when transporting a stove face down, as this is the most sensitive part of the appliance. You would potentially damage the oven door, the handle, the buttons, etc.
How to load a stove into a truck?
If you have the right equipment, the safest way to load a stove into a moving van or truck is by using a forklift. However, we understand most homeowners do not have easy access to such equipment.
In this case, the easiest way of loading your stove into the truck would be to place a ramp in the back of the truck and push the appliance up with a dolly. To be on the safe side, we recommend having two people helping to load the stove – one in the front and another in the back.
Can Eurosender provide any tools for loading the stove into the truck or van?
Yes, absolutely. We can arrange for the van that will be moving your stove to have a tail-lift. This way, all you have to do is place the item in the tail-lift, and it will be safely moved up to the same level as the van, where you then accommodate it as you wish.
If you require a tail-lift or loading/unloading assistance, please request this during the order process so we can make the necessary arrangements upfront. We will then reach out to the courier driver to organise all the details for transporting your wood stove.

What is the capacity of the vans available for moving a stove?
We offer two types of vans for moving appliances such as a stove:
  • 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)
As you see, the moving van fits much more than a stove inside, so they are perfect for relocations. You can move your gas or wood stove and other household equipment to your new home at once.
What is the best way to move a wood stove from a remote location?
Even if you need to ship to a remote location, the Van Delivery Service is still the best option for transporting a wood stove as it can reach small villages, islands, and far away destinations. If you are aware that the collection or delivery will take place in a location that is hard to access, please make sure to schedule the Van Service in advance so that everything will run smoothly.
Is it expensive to move a stove?
Moving a wood or gas stove does not need to be an expensive task if you have the right shipping provider. At Eurosender, we offer stove moving services at very affordable prices. Our van rates start at 0.48 €/km, which becomes even more affordable if you will be relocating an entire apartment or office since you can move your stove and all your goods at once.
