I see Mason has helped already ... You see, men are so handy on this forum (Mason, i'm joking :rofling. Anyway, i wouldn't sell the machine and make the adjustments, if your landlord is ok with it. I'm moving too next week and i have one fridge too many. I agreed with the landlady to sell hers and then get another when we move out.
Don't worry, moving is frustrating and i send you

aww..thanks KN :-) .. I will try and resolve this..got a "no" to having the disabled car space and found a hole in the apartment ceiling AND waited 5 hours (only place to sit was the toilet!) for the telecommunications company to show and they didn't. So, anything from here is up!

Ok..moved things in today and mover realised my machine *could* fit in but with about 1mm space to spare and he advised me against it because any movement would chip or scratch the machine potentially. He advised me to get someone who is very good with an angle grinder to come grind down the lip of the vanity bench. It isn't marble it's just a composite and if done well it won't look awful..just..not as long. Is it carpenters who use these tools as a rule..or...?? I need to know which tradeperson to call.

Does it matter if the machine gets a little scratched? If it were me I'd just put it in as is and if it got a little scratched who cares? Its not like a car, personally I wouldn't mind the potential for a scratch and would rather that than pay someone to come in and grind down the vanity (which do you know if your landlord will allow that?) Just my opinion

As long as the machine is set up level and you don't unbalance it by improper loading it should be fine regardless of the tight fit.

If you're really worried about scratching, put a strip of duct tape along the side of the vanity top. It should add just enough padding to prevent any real damage.

Am thinking Mason has a duct tape wallet. Seriously, though, if you are thinking about calling a tradesperson, then it would be a carpenter you'd be calling. I suppose a mason might also be able to help (mason--bricklayer, no relation to the famoos truck driver)

I was going to suggest this - not duct tape, but maybe a towel or something between the washer and vanity to restrict friction. If that isn't an option for you, I would just see if the agent can explain the situation to the property owner & see what can be worked out for you. Good luck!
