Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

Packing your outdoor itemsBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

If you are planning for a move, it's only natural to consider every item within your residence that may have to be moved to your new residence. Having said that, a lot of people have quite a few things, such as grills and patio furniture, outdoors which should not be forgotten. Preparing and packing out of doors things for a move might be like packing some of your inside household furniture, however like with most home belongings, it is important to take special care to do the job correctly. If not, you may reach your new residence having destroyed home furniture as well as a dented-up grill.

Deep Cleaning

Even before packing a single throw pillow, do some heavy cleaning of the outdoor furniture as well as grill. In the event that they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you might end up getting dirt and grime on various other things which ride adjacent to them within the moving truck. Spray all areas of the patio furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off using water. Be certain and pay attention to the many cracks and crevices on the furniture. For the grill, take out the soot and ashes from the inside and clean up the grease or ash catcher. Also, consult the instruction manual to see if there is a suggested cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of the grill as well as check if they've got additional suggestions for cleaning.


After you have washed your outdoor furniture as well as grill, you can start to pack it up for your move. Remove cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and put them aside. Take apart any furniture items that can easily be taken apart and be sure to keep track of the hardware in a bag or box which you can label and affix to the frame. Cover the pieces of furniture in moving pads and be certain to cover all the sides with the blankets. When they've been solidly covered, secure the pads with tape to prevent damage. Be sure that all pillows and cushions are completely dry before packing them within cartons. Label the cartons for convenient identification in your new home.

Take off grates, trays and also smaller pieces from your grill and carefully wrap them in packing paper and place them in cartons. You’ll also want to take out the propane tank from the grill. Verify with the moving company in Wichita Falls if they can load the tank on the moving van. You will more than likely need to transport it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank upon arriving to your new house, as the majority of professional movers in Wichita Falls won't transport anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving blankets and secure with tape for secure moving.

Keep in mind that a professional mover in Wichita Falls can help with the packing and moving of your patio and garden furniture and grill (devoid of the propane tank).

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
