Sorry I didn't see this earlier.

Washers and dryers are easy to move for anyone who knows what they are doing.

Generally speaking there isn't much to do. If you have front-loaders, there is sometimes a stabilizing ring that you can install to keep things from moving around. You can ask the manufacturer about that, or in many cases a van line will have those for you.

When you get to your destination, be sure and buy NEW hoses for the washer. The old hoses tend to deform a little to match the faucet they are connected to, so they can start leaking on you on the new faucets. They are cheap and easy to replace.

One other note - I've seen some people try to use the washer and dryer as containers to store small items during the move. This is a bad idea, as you can get the finish on the drum all scratched up. Don't do it.

Good luck on your move, and be sure and let me know if you have any other questions....
