When Does Moving Your Appliances to Austin Make Sense?

Moving your appliancesBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Whenever you watch house buying shows on TV, you often hear the question, "Do the home appliances come with it?" Should it be a new build construction home, this certainly makes sense but what if the potential buyers are thinking about a more established house? In certain parts of the country, it is a usual practice of moving your home appliances to your new home while in other areas of the country, it would not even cross your thoughts. Here are several situations for which you may consider having your moving company in Austin move the home appliances to your new location.

Appliances are Old and Out of Date in Your New House

In case you are moving into an old house, requiring renovation, you might speak with your professional mover about bringing your present appliances with you. Sometimes, older, outdated kitchens might not have ovens which work to their complete capacity or an old washing machine or clothes dryer might not perform like your current products do. In such cases, moving your existing ones is usually a no brainer. Although you might not keep these home appliances in the long run, it will give you time to do your homework and find out which ones you would like to have in your freshly renovated place.

Your Present Appliances are Brand New

Sometimes if you are organizing your house to sell, your realtor might recommend getting new appliances to help the property display better or you could have had an accident which required you to purchase a new appliance even though you knew you were likely to be putting your residence on the market within months. In either case, if you got a new appliance, and that one is remarkably superior to the one set up in your new location, this may be a time when moving it together with you is the most beneficial plan of action.

You're in Love with Your...

We have all been through it. We came across the refrigerator of our dreams, the one which makes shopping lists for us, or the noiseless dishwasher that you may operate even though the baby is slumbering? It just required how many years to locate the appliance you have always wanted and now you need to move? Moving to Austin does not necessarily mean you have to leave that which you love behind. Before committing to bringing the love of your life with you, be sure that it fits into the desired place and also the correct hook ups are obtainable. There is no use in moving a gas stove with you when there is no gas line hook up in your new residence or the huge, magnificent refrigerator if it will not fit. Plan ahead.

Points to consider prior to making the big move.

· Make sure that all the home appliances are unplugged and turned off from water and gas lines, and those lines are correctly capped.

· Clean and dry all your home appliances thoroughly prior to when the professional movers arrive. This step is particularly essential if you are planning on storing them ahead of moving into your new home. This should help to circumvent any mold or unpleasant smells.

· Measure, measure, measure. The most terrible issue that can occur is that you prepare for your new home appliance to come with you and it doesn't fit when you get there.

Bringing your appliances doesn't have to be a headache provided that you get ready beforehand.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
