Republic Moving – Top Moving and Storage Companies in Southern California


Something that is often forgotten about when moving is the state of your refrigerator at your current residence and the one you’re moving to. There are a few things you need to know and do ahead of time to check “refrigerator” off your pre-moving list. Here are some of the things you need to do to prepare your refrigerator for your move!


One of the main things you need to do is clean out your fridge and freezer before moving. You might wish moving and storage companies could have someone come and do it for you but it doesn’t have to be a big, scary task and you could get it done rather quickly! You can start by removing the entire contents of your fridge and checking expiration dates while doing this. Throw out anything old or that you don’t use often.

Once everything is removed, take out the shelves and set them aside. You can now easily wipe down the inside of the refrigerator. Once that’s done, wipe down the shelves and pop those back in once they’re dry. Put back in the contents of your fridge and you’re one step closer to being ready to move!


If you own your refrigerator and are taking it from your old home to your new home, be sure to wrap it well to avoid any mishaps during the moving process. This can easily be done by wrapped in with padding or a blanket.

If this is your plan, make sure to take out all shelving and wrap and pack that separately. A lot of the time moving and storage companies offer bubble wrap or padding to keep your belongings safe.


A quick and easy tip is to deodorize your refrigerator. You can easily do this by popping in an opened box of baking soda and setting it in your fridge or freezer. This helps kill bacteria and any funky smells that might be coming from food or drinks.
