Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

If you are planning for a move, it is common to consider every item inside of your residence which will have to be moved to your new home. However, many people have several things, such as grills as well as patio furniture, outside the house which cannot be forgotten. Preparing as well as packing outdoor belongings for your move may be like packing a lot of your inside pieces of furniture, yet as with almost all household things, you will need to take special care to do the job properly. If not, you could reach your new house with broken furniture plus a dented-up grill.

Deep Cleaning

Before packing a single cushion, carry out some deep cleaning of the patio and garden furniture and also grill. In the event that they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you could end up getting grime and dirt on other things that ride close to them inside the moving van. Spray all surfaces of the outdoor furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off with water. Be sure and clean the many cracks and crevices around the furniture. For the grill, take out the soot and ashes from inside and thoroughly clean the grease or ash catcher. Also, check the instruction manual to ascertain if there's a recommended cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of the grill and to see if they have additional recommendations for cleaning.


After you've cleaned your outdoor furniture and grill, you can start to pack it up for your move. Remove pillows and cushions from the patio furniture and put them to the side. Take apart all furniture items that 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 affix to the frame. Wrap the pieces of furniture in moving pads and take care to protect all the sides using the blankets. After they're safely wrapped, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Be positive that all pillows and cushions are completely free of moisture prior to packing them in boxes. Label the boxes for quick recognition in your new house.

Take off grates, trays as well as smaller parts from your grill and thoroughly cover them in packing paper and place them in cartons. You’ll should also take off the propane tank from the grill. Verify with your moving company in San Antonio if they can load the tank on the moving van. You will more than likely need to move it yourself or leave it behind and buy a new tank soon after arriving to your new house, as the majority of professional movers in San Antonio will not move anything flammable or combustible. Wrap the grill in moving pads and secure with tape for secure moving.

Remember that a professional mover in San Antonio can help with the packing and moving of your outdoor furniture and grill (devoid of the propane tank).
