How Do You Haul a Refrigerator in a Pickup Truck?

Hauling a refrigerator in a pickup truck can be a daunting task for the inexperienced. But with the right tools and preparation, it is an easily achievable task.

The first step to hauling a fridge in a pickup truck is to ensure you have the necessary equipment. This includes rope or straps for securing the fridge in the bed of the truck, as well as furniture blankets to protect both the fridge and your cargo bed. You will also need two people – one to drive and one to help load and secure the fridge.

Loading The Refrigerator

Once you have all your equipment ready, you can begin loading the refrigerator into your truck. Before lifting, it’s important that you secure the fridge using straps or rope so that it doesn’t move while being transported. It’s also important to use furniture blankets or other protective material to protect both your cargo bed and refrigerator from scratches and damage.

Securing The Refrigerator In Place

Once you have loaded the refrigerator into your pickup truck, it’s time to secure it in place. This can be done by tying down each corner of the fridge with rope or straps.

Be sure that these are tight enough so that the refrigerator doesn’t move around during transit but not so tight that they damage either your cargo bed or appliance.

Transporting The Refrigerator

After securing your refrigerator, you are now ready for transport. Be sure not to exceed any speed limits as this could cause further damage or even cause an accident. Also be aware of any sharp turns or bumps as this could cause strain on either your cargo bed or appliance.

Unloading The Refrigerator

When you reach your destination, be sure to unload the refrigerator with care. Have someone hold either side of it while unloading and ensure that you do not drop it on its side as this could cause serious damage.


Hauling a refrigerator in a pickup truck can be intimidating at first but with some preparation and help from another person, it can be done safely and efficiently.
