Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

When you are planning for a move, it's only natural to take into account every item inside of your home that will have to be moved to your new residence. However, many people have quite a few things, such as grills as well as patio furniture, outside which can't be overlooked. Preparing as well as packing outside belongings for your move may be similar to packing some of your inside pieces of furniture, however like with all household things, it is essential to be extra careful to complete the job right. If not, you might reach your new home having destroyed household furniture and a dented-up grill.

Detailed Cleaning

Prior to packing a single throw pillow, carry out some deep 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 grime and dirt on a variety of other items which ride beside them inside the moving truck. Spray all surfaces of the patio and garden furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse using water. Make certain and get the many cracks and crevices around the furniture. For the grill, remove the soot as well as ashes from the inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Also, check with the instruction manual to ascertain if there's a advised cleaning product for the interior and exterior of the grill and to find out if they've got extra tips for cleaning.


Once you have washed your furniture and also grill, you'll be ready to pack it up for the move. Take off pillows and cushions from the outdoor furniture and put them to the side. Disassemble any furniture pieces that may be easily disassembled and make sure to keep track of the hardware in a bag or box that you can label and tape to the frame. Cover the furniture pieces in moving blankets and make sure to protect all the sides with the blankets. Once they are safely wrapped, secure the pads with tape to prevent damage. Be certain that all throw pillows or cushions are totally free of moisture before packing them within boxes. Label the boxes for simple recognition in your new house.

Take off grates, trays and small parts from your grill and carefully cover them in packing paper and place them in boxes. You’ll should also take out the propane tank from the grill. Verify with the moving company in Atlanta whether they can load the tank on the moving van. You will probably have to move it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank upon arriving to your new house, because most professional movers in Atlanta will not transport anything flammable or combustible. Wrap the grill in moving blankets and secure with tape for safe moving.

Remember that a professional mover in Atlanta can help with the packing and moving of your patio furniture and grill (without the propane tank).
