It's time to move! Whether you're moving across town or across the country, the process of packing and moving your belongings can be daunting. If you have a garage full of stuff, it can be even more challenging. But don't worry, the residential movers here at Frisbie Moving & Storage are here! In this blog post, we'll give you tips for moving your items in your garage so that the transition is smooth and stress-free.

Create A Plan

Make a plan to get ready for moving items in your garage. Before you start packing up your garage, it's important to take inventory of what you have and decide what you need to keep and what you can get rid of. This will help you determine how much space you need and what kind of storage containers or boxes you'll need to use. Once you have a plan, you can begin getting your garage items prepared for your move. 

Extra Items 

From old furniture to other outdated and unused items, your garage acts as a storage space for items you no longer need. Before your move, make sure that you get rid of any of these extra items. You can do so by donating them or scrapping them at a junkyard. 

Grills & Flammable Liquids

Barbecue grills and flammable liquids are other items that you likely store in your garage. When moving your grill, you have to make sure it is cleared of charcoal and other flammable materials for the safety of you and the movers. Be sure to strap your grill down so that nothing shifts during the move. If you store other flammable items, then make sure they are properly disposed of before your move. These include: 

  • Paints
  • Cleaning Solutions
  • Gas 

Lawncare & Tools

If you have a lawn that you have to maintain, you likely have landscaping and lawn mowing tools stored in your garage. Before your move, make sure to empty them out or give them away to people you know. You may also store a tool chest in your garage, and if so, then make sure all of the tools are placed in it and any drawers and doors are properly secured. The last thing you want is to have tools spilling out. If you’d rather have a team of long-distance movers take care of your garage items, then consider hiring the services of a moving company. 

Your Vehicles

From cars to motorcycles, you likely park vehicles in your garage. It can be a bit tricky to get them moved since they tend to be a bit on the larger side. That is why, when it comes to automotive vehicles, you need the right services and tools to ensure they arrive at your new location without damage. Some services and tools include:

  • Custom Crates
  • Professional Trailers
  • Reimbursement Coverage 
  • Tie-Down Straps

Make The Move A Bit More Smooth

Moving can be a challenge, especially if you have a garage full of your belongings. Hopefully, following these tips will help make the process a little smoother. Good luck and get started with your move!
