Today's Tip:

Empty and unplug your refrigerator 24 hours before your move.


Emptying your refrigerator may seem like the last thing you should do before your move, but that's not necessarily the case.  Professional movers like VMA recommend emptying and unplugging your refrigerator at least 24 hours prior to your movers arriving.  There are a few important reasons behind this recommendation:

  1. Emptying your refrigerator the day before your move prevents last minute packing the day of your move. 
  2. Unplugging your refrigerator 24 hours prior to your move allows all the excess water drain safely.
    • Un-defrosted refrigerators can leak water when moved onto the moving truck, potentially leading to damage of other items on the truck.

So what do you do with your perishable items that need to be refrigerated?  Here are a few recommended solutions:

  1. Pack all perishable items into coolers with ice or dry ice.
  2. If moving to a home/apartment that already has a refrigerator, move your items ahead of time into the new fridge.
  3. Sort through the items in your fridge and throw out expired items or things that you don't use anymore.

It may seem unnecessary, but doing this one simple things can help prevent water damage to other items on your move.  Do yourself (and your movers) a favor and unplug your fridge at least 24 hours before your move!

Happy Moving!
