Moving a Dishwasher

Moving a dishwasher just makes sense sometimes. After all, you’ve invested a lot in your appliances and it would be a shame not to bring them with you to your new home. When you’re moving, you can take appliances with you, provided they’re not part of ‘the deal’ for the new homeowners. Or, you can replace them with cheaper models, but bring your more expensive ones to your new home. This can sometimes be cheaper than buying them new (of course, that depends on the case). In this article, we’ll focus on how to move a dishwasher. Step 1: moving a dishwasher starts with unplugging it To start this step, you’ll need to be able to move your dishwasher out of its spot in your cabinetry. Even if it looks ‘built in,’ it is likely sitting in a ‘gap’ of space between cabinets underneath your counter. The hard parts will be: Unscrewing it from your countertop, if it is attached. Figuring out how to draw it out without a lot of room on the edges to grasp it. The use of a dolly may really help. Finding the breaker connection that gives the dishwasher power (if it’s not labelled), and turning it off (you must do this for safety before you proceed!) If you can drain the dishwasher before moving it out of it’s spot, that will be your best bet. If your dishwasher doesn’t drain completely, it may be clogged. Follow these steps from Wikihow to clean it out, or solve the problem otherwise. Now it’s time to drag out the dishwasher. You’ll want to prepare the floor...

Vancouver movers publish blog of Canadian online stores with free shipping options

As a company of Vancouver movers, the team at Ferguson understands that when you do a long distance move to a remote location, you’re probably adapting to a new lifestyle. If you lived in a big city before your move, shopping was likely easy; most shopping centres would have what you need. But in small towns, that’s not always the case – even if Walmart is common nowadays. While yes, you could find some small boutique stores with their own charm, sometimes you really need items that are harder to find in those remote locations. But who wants to pay for shipping? So, in this article, we’ll help you with your long distance move by listing Canadian online stores with free shipping options, other than Amazon.ca (which won’t always have everything!) Buying furniture online after a long distance move Furniture stores in Canada that allow you to shop online and ship for free include: Waifar.ca – this is where you can find home decor, as well as furniture. Currently if you spend more than $75 you can get free shipping. Thebay.com – offers free shipping over $45 if you have their credit card. If not, it’s over $99. But with furniture, you’re likely to go over that anyway. Of course, this is a department store with lots of other things to buy, that will apply to other categories on our list here! Kitchenstuffplus.ca – offers free shipping over $75, with a max to $20 of shipping cost. The item also can’t be “oversized,” which they define on their website. BestBuy.ca – yes, they have a furniture section in their...
