Having said that, many people have quite a few things, including grills and also patio furniture, outdoors which should not be ignored. Preparing along with packing outdoor things for your move can be similar to packing most of your inside pieces of furniture, yet as with most home things, you will need to be extra careful to do the job correctly.

Deep Cleaning

Even before packing a single throw pillow, do some heavy cleaning of the patio furniture as well as grill. In the event that they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you might end up with grime and dirt on various other belongings that ride alongside them in the moving van. Spray all areas of the outdoor furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off using water. Be certain and pay attention to all of the crevices and cracks on the furniture. For the grill, get rid of the soot as well as ashes from inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Additionally, check the instruction manual to see if there is a advised cleaning solution for the outside and inside of the grill and also to find out if they have additional suggestions for cleaning.


After you have cleaned your furniture and grill, you can start to pack it up for your move. Strip away cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and place them to one side. Take apart whatever furniture pieces which could be easily disassembled and make sure to keep track of the hardware in a bag or box which you can label and attach to the frame. Cover the furniture pieces in moving pads and be certain to protect all the sides with the pads. After they've been solidly packaged, secure the pads with tape to avoid damage. Be sure that any pillows or cushions are totally dry prior to packing them inside cartons. Label the cartons for convenient identification at your new house.

Remove grates, trays and also smaller components from your grill and cautiously cover them in packing paper and put them in boxes. You’ll should also take off the propane tank from the grill. Determine with the moving company in Atlanta whether they can transport the tank on the moving van. You will in all probability need to haul it yourself or leave it behind and buy a new tank upon arriving to your new residence, as a general rule professional movers in Atlanta won't move anything flammable or combustible. Wrap the grill in moving blankets and secure with tape for secure moving.
