Many professional moving companies will move your appliances for you however they do not connect or disconnect appliances since they are not certified plumbers. It then falls to you to either get a plumber to disconnect your washer, dryer and refrigerator or do it yourself. Be sure to find your owner’s manuals and read the instructions on disconnecting appliances. If you have lost your original owner’s manual, you can usually find a copy on the appliance manufacturer’

Disconnect the water line following the guidelines in your owner’s manual or hire a plumber. Once the water line is fully drained and the refrigerator or freezer is defrosted, clean the inside of the unit. Thoroughly clean the appliance on the inside walls, ceiling and shelves. You can do this with a cloth and dish soap or a mild cleaner. Wipe all surfaces thoroughly with a clean, dry rag. You may wish to remove all shelved and storage bins that could shift in transit. Pack these separately and label the box. Tape the electrical cord to the back of the unit so it is out of the way for the move.
