When Does Moving Your Appliances to Oklahoma City Make Sense?

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

If you check out home buying shows on TV, you often hear the question, "Do the kitchen appliances come with it?" If it's a new build construction home, this undoubtedly makes sense but what if the prospective buyers are considering a more established home? In some parts of the country, it is a standard process of moving your home appliances to your new house while in other parts of the country, it wouldn't even cross your mind. Here are some scenarios where you might contemplate having your moving company in Oklahoma City move the appliances to your new area.

Home appliances are Older and Outdated in Your New House

If you're moving into an older residence, needing remodeling, you may speak with your professional mover about moving your present appliances together with you. Sometimes, older, outdated kitchens may not have ovens which work to the complete capacity or an older washing machine or clothes dryer might not do the job such as your present products do. In these cases, moving your current ones is often a no brainer. Although you may not keep these appliances in the long run, it can provide you with a chance to research your options and find out the ones that you would like to have within your freshly remodeled area.

Your Existing Appliances are Brand New

Sometimes if you are organizing your residence to sell, your realtor may advise buying newer home appliances to help the home show better or you may have had an accident which required you to buy a new appliance even though you realized you were probably going to be putting your residence for sale within months. In any event, when you bought a new appliance, and that one is extremely better than the one set up in your new location, this could be a time when moving it together with you is the best plan of action.

You're in Love with Your...

Most of us have been there. We came across the refrigerator of our dreams, the one which can make shopping lists for us, or the quiet dishwasher that you can operate while the toddler is sleeping? It only took how many years to locate the appliance you've always dreamt of and now you must move? Moving to Oklahoma City does not mean you have to leave everything you love behind. Ahead of deciding on moving the love of your life with you, make sure that it will fit in the designated space and that the appropriate hook ups are on hand. There's no use in moving a gas range with you when there is no gas line connection in your new home or the big, magnificent refrigerator when it doesn't fit. Plan ahead.

Things to consider prior to making the big move.

· Be sure that all the appliances are unplugged and shut off from water and gas lines, and those lines are correctly capped.

· Clean and dry all your home appliances thoroughly before the professional movers arrive. This task is particularly important if you're planning on storing them prior to moving into your new residence. This can help to prevent any mildew or horrible smells.

· Measure, measure, measure. The most detrimental problem that may take place is you arrange for your new home appliance to come with you and it does not fit once you get there.

Bringing your appliances doesn't need to be a headache so long as you get ready in advance.

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.
