Moving Counter: 6643

I was VERY lucky that I accidentally saw HURRAY moving companies car and their contacts. It was really pleasure to work with them. They helped me with moving of my office , everything was very well organized and very fast. Workers were careful and almost nothing destroyed (only one table a little bit) . OK honest to say it was quite pricey , but I am quite satisfied with result and quality, because no stress and no troubles. I only regret about why I did not select possible option, when you just give keys from old office and new office, and HURRAY moving company take care of everything at all. Because it is also possible :) Next time I will order them again with such option. Highly recommended.

How to transport a refrigerator correctly: advice of professionals

Transportation of a refrigerator

The principle of operation of any refrigeration equipment is associated with the use of an engine and freon, which actually produces the much needed cold. For the correct and constant treatment of Freon through the system, copper tubes are mounted on the rear wall of the refrigerator, along which it moves and, accordingly, gives off the cold.

The need to transport a refrigerator in Lviv you can arise when carrying both an apartment and an office, because this household assistant is the most necessary equipment that is bought home and for work.

When transporting the refrigerator to a new location, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the notes that are on the packaging of the equipment itself and the transportation advice specified in the instructions for any refrigeration or freezing equipment.

MarkAs a rule, on the package you will see a mark in the form of two up arrow and image of the glass.

Let's look at the details of what they mean and how they affect the transportation of the refrigerator in Lviv and in any other city.

  • The two up arrows mean that the equipment must only be transported standing, the manufacturer does not recommend transporting it lying down or in any other way.
  • A mark in the form of a glass informs about the fragility of the contents in the box and prohibits canting the box and transporting the contents without packaging.

Why can not you transport a refrigerator lying down?

As already mentioned, in any refrigeration or freezing equipment there is a network of tubes through which freon moves.

This system is set up so that freon constantly flows down to the engine and rises upward under its pressure. If the refrigerator is not transported correctly, for example, lying on its side, freon flows to another place, but not to the engine. In the engine at this time, an air cushion is formed, which, when the refrigerator returns to a vertical position, does not allow freon to flow down.

When the equipment is plugged into the socket, the engine starts to run "dry" and immediately burns out. Repair in this case will cost from 30-40% of the cost of the refrigerator, because, as a rule, this will be an engine replacement.
