Refrigerators and Freezers: Must be empty and defrosted. Defrost appliances 48 hours prior to the move. Upright freezers (with lid on top) may be left full only if, there are no steps or stairs to go up or down, and you are moving locally (less than 50miles of driving). Low Budget Moving and Storage Movers will not be liable for any damage that occurs to the appliance if moved with contentions inside or for any water damage that occurs due to appliance leaking water.
