    second hand washing machine logistics

    Hi

    The place we are moving into doesn't have a washing machine. We can obviously go and buy a new one, but I note that second hand ones are pretty cheap.

    However, what are the logistics of getting a second hand washing machine? Is it just a case of hiring a man with a van and moving it from one property to another?

    What about installation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Shops along Yu Chau road, opposite to Dragon Centre ( Sham Shui Po), sells second hand washing machines. They also help you to book a van and get it delivered. If you buy from classified, you can book gogovan or lalamove and get the job done.

    The app Call Sifu can help with getting some handyman, but you may need to take help from chinese friends

    We've used a GoGoVan guy for this. Make sure you tell the van guy that he'll need to help move and also to bring a trolley / whatever.

    Book a handyman for a day, after the move to help put up photos / nail shit into place / child proofing / fixtures / TV wiring etc etc?

    If your new apartment has the wiring and plumbing in place, it's not too difficult to hook it up.
