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 is common to think about all the items inside your residence that will have to be moved to your new house. Having said that, many people have quite a few things, including grills and also patio furniture, outdoors which should not be overlooked. Preparing along with packing outside things for your move can be like packing most of your inside pieces of furniture, yet as with just about all home items, you will need to be extra careful to complete the job right. Otherwise, you may reach your new house having damaged furniture and a dented-up grill.

Deep Cleaning

Before packing a single throw pillow, do some heavy cleaning of the outdoor furniture as well as grill. In the event that they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you may end up getting grime and dirt on other things that ride adjacent to them within 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 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 find out if there's a advised cleaning solution for the outside and inside of the grill and also to see if they have further ideas for cleaning.


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

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

Do not forget that a professional mover in Oklahoma City can certainly help with the packing and moving of your patio and garden furniture and grill (without the propane tank).
