Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

When you're planning for a move, it's common to consider all the items inside your home that will have to be moved to your new residence. However, a lot of people have quite a few things, like grills as well as patio furniture, outside which should not be forgotten. Preparing and packing outdoor belongings for a move might be similar to packing some of your inside home furniture, yet like with almost all household belongings, you will need to be extra careful to do the job properly. If you don't, you may get to your new home having broken furniture and a dented-up grill.

Detailed Cleaning

Even before packing a single throw pillow, perform some heavy cleaning of the patio and garden furniture as well as grill. When they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you could end up having dirt and grime on a variety of other things that ride beside them in the moving truck. Spray all areas of the patio and garden furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse using water. Make certain and pay attention to all of the crevices and cracks around the furniture. With regard to the grill, take out the soot and also ashes from the inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Also, consult the instruction manual to find out if there's a advised cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of the grill and to see if they may have extra tips for cleaning.


Once you have washed your furniture and also grill, you'll be ready to pack it up for the move. Strip away pillows and cushions from the patio furniture and place them to one side. Take apart all furniture items which could be easily taken apart and make certain to keep track of the hardware in a bag or box that you can label and tape to the frame. Wrap the pieces of furniture in moving pads and take care to protect all the sides utilizing the blankets. When they are safely wrapped, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Be positive that all throw pillows and cushions are completely dry ahead of packing them inside cartons. Label the cartons for simple recognition at the new residence.

Remove grates, trays and also smaller parts from your grill and carefully cover them in packing paper and put them in cartons. You’ll want to remove the propane tank from the grill. Confirm with the moving company in Tulsa whether they can load the tank on the moving van. You will more than likely have to haul it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank upon arriving to your new residence, as the majority of professional movers in Tulsa won't move anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving blankets and secure with packing tape for secure moving.

Remember that a professional mover in Tulsa can certainly help with the packing and moving of your outdoor furniture and grill (devoid of the propane tank).
