Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

When you are preparing for a move, it's common to take into account every item inside your residence that will have to be moved to your new residence. However, a lot of people have several things, like grills and also patio furniture, outside that cannot be ignored. Preparing and packing outside items for a move can be like packing most of your interior furniture, yet like with all home things, you will need to be extra careful to complete the job right. If you don't, you could arrive at your new home with damaged household furniture along with a dented-up grill.

Serious Cleaning

Prior to packing a single cushion, carry out some heavy cleaning of the patio and garden furniture as well as grill. In the event that they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you could end up with dirt and grime on various other things that ride adjacent to them within the moving van. Spray all surfaces of the patio and garden furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off using water. Be certain and clean all of the cracks and crevices on the furniture. With regard to the grill, get rid of the soot as well as ashes from inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Also, check the manual to ascertain if there's a recommended cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of the grill and to find out if they have additional recommendations for cleaning.


Once you have cleaned your outdoor furniture and grill, you can start to pack it up for the move. Remove cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and put them to the side. Disassemble whatever furniture items which can easily be taken apart and make certain to keep track of all the hardware in a bag or box that you can label and attach to the frame. Cover the furniture pieces in moving blankets and make sure to cover all the sides with the blankets. After they are solidly packaged, secure the pads with tape to prevent damage. Make certain all pillows and also cushions are completely free of moisture ahead of packing them in boxes. Label the cartons for simple identification in your new home.

Remove grates, trays as well as smaller pieces from the grill and cautiously cover them in packing paper and put them in cartons. You’ll also want to remove the propane tank from the grill. Verify with your moving company in Wichita Falls whether they can load the tank on the moving van. You will in all probability have to move it yourself or leave it behind and buy a new tank after arriving to your new home, as a general rule professional movers in Wichita Falls won't transport anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving pads and secure with packing tape for secure moving.

Remember that a professional mover in Wichita Falls can assist with the packing and moving of your patio and garden furniture and grill (without the propane tank).
