Shipping appliances can be difficult. Most traditional shipping companies don’t have the capacity or the capability to handle large appliances such as washing machines, ovens or refrigerators. What’s more, you may not have enough appliances to fill a semi-trailer. That’s where GoShip.com can make shipping appliances easier for you. Our appliance shipping and delivery services provide a cost-effective, easy-to-use and time-saving way to ship appliances where you need them the most.

How to Ship Your Appliances
Shipping appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers or stoves require a little extra care to avoid damaging them during shipping.
- Defrost refrigerators at least 24 hours ahead of time
- Remove and pack all shelves and drawers separately
- Clean and pack ovens, all racks, knobs, and grills separately
- Washers and dryers should have their hoses removed and packed by themselves — with the dryer’s drum properly secured
- All appliances with doors should have them taped and secured to avoid falling open during transit
How does appliance delivery work?
Shipping appliances can be difficult without the use of a semitrailer. However, the majority of the time, you won’t be shipping enough to fill the entire trailer. Meaning, you’ll be paying for space in the trailer you aren’t using. Hiring a private vehicle to deliver your appliances is another option. However, this can be even more expensive than renting a semitrailer. You’ll also need to have an employee take time away from your business to make the delivery.
