How to Transport a Mini Fridge in a Car

October 19, 2023

A refrigerator is a useful appliance for many reasons, keeping food and drinks cold. For those looking to transport a fridge in a car, there are a few things that need to be kept in mind to ensure the process is as safe and smooth as possible.

First, it's important to understand that most fridges should be transported upright. Doing otherwise can cause damage to the interior of the refrigerator and could even lead to internal problems that affect how well the fridge operates.

If you need to move your fridge up a set of stairs, have one person stand above the refrigerator using the dolly and guide it up each step, while another person should be below, pulling the dolly back down each step and maintaining a 45-degree tilt. This helps ensure that the fridge is fully under control at all times and doesn't fall forward on top of you.

For those who want to know whether a mini fridge can fit in the trunk of their vehicle, it is best to measure both the fridge and trunk space. However, it's also important to note that a fridge can sometimes be damaged when transported in the trunk, depending on how it's loaded and other factors. To avoid this, make sure to carefully pack the fridge, secure it with bungee cords or straps and place pillows around it to keep it from moving while being transported. This will help protect the fridge during the trip and help ensure it arrives at its destination in good condition.
