East Bay Two Men And A Truck Moving Company Gives Advice On How To Move Washer and Dryers Brent Larson manager at Two Men And A Truck moving company gives professional advice how to move your washer and dryer. San Francisco (I- Newswire) February 09, 2012 - Like any household appliance, washers and dryers need to be handled and moved with care says Brent Larson manager of Two Men And A Truck Livermore. Because of their bulk and the cords and attachments that come along with them, they can be tricky to move properly. Having the right tools as well as enough willing helpers will make the process much easier. Acquire an appliance dolly or hand truck in order to keep the bulk and weight distribution even when you move the dryer. You will also need dryer pads to protect the items. This will help from any scratches or chips that might happen when you are moving. Remove the metallic hose from the back of the dryer. Store the hose in the dryer so you have it on hand when you are ready to set the dryer up again. If the horse has holes on it, replace the hose from your local hardware store. If you have an electric dryer, unplug it, loop and secure the cord with tape to the back of the dryer to keep it out of the way. If you have a gas dryer, turn off the gas and remove the hose. Loop and secure it, storing it in the dryer until you need it again. You might want to also think about replace this hose at the time you move this item, There is a gas washer and due time the washer will leak. Remember this is gas so based on my professional opinion, I would replace this hose. Before sliding this on the dolly place the pad over the dryer at this time to protect your item. Carefully slide the dryer onto the dolly. For extra security and support (for instance, going down stairs) bungee or tie the appliance to the dolly frame. Have at least two people on hand to guide and support the dryer as you move it.
