If you can manage to get your refrigerator curbside or to a loading dock we can save you more. When you don’t have the ability to move the unit yourself, no worries, we can arrange white-glove services.

Freight shipping refrigerators is usually done via LTL freight. But if you are shipping a lot of refrigerators, you may need a full truckload. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

How Do You Select a Carrier for Shipping Refrigerators if You Need a Full Truckload?

If you are shipping refrigerators in quantities that call for full truckload (FTL) service, FreightCenter’s Truckload division is available to find the right carrier for your shipment. We maintain relationships with hundreds of regional and national freight trucking companies throughout the country who check with us for available hauls. We excel at finding and booking specialty vehicles.

If you need a specialty vehicle like a flatbed or air suspension for your refrigerator shipping, we’re here to help. Call our Truckload shipping experts at 800.716.7608 to learn more or use our free online quote tool to get started right away.

How Do You Prepare a Refrigerator for LTL Shipping?

When using LTL shipping, most refrigerator models need the unit transported in an upright position. This upright position rule is due to draining and compressor issues. Please refer to your specific make and model user manual. Your manual will have specific requirements for transporting. Having your refrigerated in an upright position also saves you money. The smaller footprint in the truck dims out in your favor.

Shipping refrigerators requires a few basic steps.

Initial Preparation:

1)Turn off the refrigerator and unplugged it from the wall.
2)Remove all contents and foods from the refrigerator.
3)Also, remove any loose doors or shelves or secured them with tape.
4)When you remove any trays, doors, pans or shelves wrap them in protective materials.
5)Clean and dry the refrigerator.
6)To prevent a refrigerator from absorbing odors, use a naturally activated charcoal odor eliminator. You can find one at a pet store or order one online.
7)Secure or remove all casters to prevent the refrigerator from rolling. Damage will occur to the unit if casters are not removed or immobilized.
8)Secure all doors from opening with packaging tape. You then have two options:


  1. Wrap the exterior of the refrigerator with moving blankets and attach it to a pallet with bands.
  2.  Secure the refrigerator in a crate.

Crating is always the optimal way to protect your freight, but it can be expensive. If you can’t build the crate yourself, contact a crating service.
