How uShip Works
"... brilliant from begining to the end..."

All I can say is that it was brilliant from the beginning to the end, and I won't now use any one else but them - thank you uShip for providing such good service. Well satisfied, 5 star, 10/10.

"It was so easy even with my limited skills on the computer. Well done."

Thanks to uShip I was able to arrange the purchase of the cooker of my dreams, previously I had only looked at sales in my area with limited success. It was so easy even with my limited skills on the computer. Well done.

How to Prepare your Appliance for Transport

Major household appliances are heavy and bulky, and can be awkward to transport. Most removal companies will be able to easily transport major appliances such as refrigerators, ovens and cookers, dishwashers, freezers, washing machines and tumble dryers. However, the preparation for transport will often fall on you. When you book a removal company, ask about any special requirements they have for transit preparation.

When preparing large household appliances for transport you will need to ensure they are completely clean, and fridges and freezers are completely defrosted. The condensation and moisture from the melting ice can cause damage to the freezer and other items in the removal company's lorry, so make sure it is dry and clean before moving. Try to get any large household appliances you are moving as clean as possible before the day of the move to prevent any accidents or damage.

You will also need to disconnect all water pipes from dishwashers, washing machines and American-style fridges, as well as any drainage or electrical connections. Make sure that the parts you remove are all safely packed away and taken with your appliance when it is shipped.

A gas oven can be safely disconnected by turning off the bayonet switch on the fitting prior to disconnection. If there is no bayonet switch, then you must contact a Gas Safe fitter. Only gas cookers can be safely disconnected in this way. All other gas appliances should only be disconnected (and reconnected) by a Gas Safe Registered fitter. If you require further information or advice on disconnecting gas cookers then please contact Gas Safe where there is a technical telephone helpline.
