Use the rope to fix the washing machine and the trolley. When pulling, remember to rearrange someone in the back of washing machine to prevent from falling

7. Put the washing machine on the truck

This is the hardest step in the process because the washing machine is quite heavy and requires two people to participate in this operation. A person will be on the front of the truck to support, the other person at the bottom lift the washing machine. During transportation, ensure that the lid of the washing machine is not opened. When the machine has reached the truck, you put the machine vertical, do not let the machine horizontal because it will adversely affects the operation of the washing machine later.

To help prevent the washing machines from scratching in the truck, you can use a mattress to insert between the washing machine and the other. The purpose of inserting the mattress in the middle to help furniture not slip and collide with other. However, the mattress must be carefully wrapped so that it is not stained. You can check out the way of transporting the mattress that NguyenloiMoving has advised from his moving experience.
