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 quite common to consider every item inside of your residence that may need to be moved to your new house. Having said that, most people have numerous items, including grills and also patio furniture, outside that cannot be forgotten. Preparing along with packing outside things for your move may be much like packing some of your inside furniture, yet just as with most household things, it is essential to take special care to complete the job correctly. If you don't, you may arrive at your new home having damaged pieces of furniture plus a dented-up grill.

Deep Cleaning

Prior to packing a single throw pillow, do some heavy cleaning of the patio furniture and grill. If they aren’t clean for the move, you may end up getting grime and dirt on various other belongings that ride beside them inside the moving van. Spray all areas of the outdoor furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse with water. Make positive and pay attention to all of the cracks and crevices about the furniture. Regarding the grill, get rid of the soot as well as ashes from inside and thoroughly clean the grease or ash catcher. Also, consult the instruction manual to find out if there's a recommended cleaning product for the interior and exterior of the grill and also to find out if they've got additional tips for cleaning.


After you have washed your patio furniture as well as grill, you can begin to pack it up for the move. Strip away cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and set them to one side. Take apart whatever furniture pieces which could be easily taken apart and make sure to keep track of all the hardware in a plastic bag or box which you can label and attach to the frame. Wrap the pieces of furniture in moving blankets and take care to cover all the sides with the blankets. Once they've been securely wrapped, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Make certain that all pillows or cushions are completely free of moisture ahead of packing them inside boxes. Label the boxes for simple recognition at your new residence.

Take off grates, trays as well as smaller parts from the grill and carefully wrap them in packing paper and set them in cartons. You’ll should also take out the propane tank from the grill. Verify with the moving company in Oklahoma City whether they can load the tank on the moving van. You will in all probability need to transport it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank soon after arriving to your new residence, because most professional movers in Oklahoma City will not move anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving pads and secure with tape for safe moving.

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