Question DetailsAsked on 6/2/2017

I need to move the refrigerator from the garage to the kitchen

I have a refrigerator that needs to be moved into the house from my garage and the old one in the kitchen that is not working properly to be placed outside though or taken away.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Here are a couple of previous similar questions with answers FYI:

Note if the reefer is tilted signicantly or laid down flat during the move it should not be plugged in for about 1/2 hour, to let the refrigerant settle back into its normal place - otherwise a startup can damage the compressor.

Also - if the reefer is being stored or put outside, the doors need to be removed so kids can't play in it and get trapped - or it has to be cabled or chained shut with a lock.

Consider how you are going to get rid of the old reefer too. If the old one is a throw-out, unless your trash company has arrangements for them to pick up large appliances and fgurniture at the curb (some will do this on an appointment basis or one day a month), I would consider getting an Appliance Repair - Large (your Search the List category) firm who will do the move as well as haul the old one away - or perhaps a bit less professional about moving the reefer without damaging the coils and such, a Hauler - a junk hauling company like the Two Guys With A Truck type firm - they commonly do in-house large appliance move-arounds, and can also haul the old reefer away for you (there is usually a $15-40 fee for refrigerant removal at the dump, in addition to the regular dump fee).
