Protecting Washing Machines in Transit: The New LITKIT
For decades past, transporting washing machines required a complicated process of securing the drums to prevent them from being damaged in delivery. Any time a washer is transported, whether by a service company or a moving company, it runs the risk of having the load destabilized or the seal torn. These companies had to keep in stock multiple bolt kits for each different washer model, each kit expensive and time-consuming to install.
Now Litco International, based in Vienna, Ohio, has released the LITKIT universal-fit washer kit, which fits and secures washer drums for every major manufacturer. Service companies can now use one kit to guarantee load stabilization and protect drums and seals from damage when moving the heavy machines. The LITKIT works for top load and front load washers. With this new kit saving moving professionals time and money in transporting washers, customers can expect better service and protection when it comes to their washing machine delivery.
Information about LITKIT’s distribution service is available at http://www.litco.com/litkit-distributors.htm.
