Question DetailsAsked on 2/11/2014

where can i find someone to move my washer from garage to upstairs in my home I would like my old washer removed

my current washer is upstairs in my hallway. I want to replace it with a washer that is stored in my garage. I need someone to remove the upstairs washer and move up and install the washer from my garage. If the same person could remove the old washer from the premises that would be good too.

You need two people with an appliance movers handtruck to do it easily, though two people doing it by hand can do it. If you are muscular and fit, you and a Handyman could do it.

Otherwise, I would recommend calling the store you bought the appliance from and find out the name of the company who does their deliveries and setups for new appliances - then call them. Probably about $100 for handyman, $100-150 appliance delivery firm. Either can take old one away, but appliance delivery firm probably cheaper as they dispose of a number at a time at a recycling yard, not requiring a special trip to the dump - probably about $50-70 disposal fee.

If you want to save on disposal fee, washers/dryers/stoves are almost all empty space, so a sawzall with a metal cutting blade or two will make quick work of it if you pick your cut points to not go through framing, and allow you to put in weekly trash pickup receptable over the course of several weeks at no extra charge. Just wear long sleeved coat and heavy leather gloves when working with it, as edges will be wicked sharp.

Be sure to include a catch basin and ideally a drain in your plans.

Be sure to change out the supply lines and perhaps incorporate the new auto shut off controllers to make sure the water lines are fool proofed.

I do not like upstairs washers unless they were designed specifically for that purpose (i.e. additional structure and bracing) as well as a drain installed.
