Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

Packing your outdoor itemsBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

If you're planning for a move, it's common to consider all the items within your house that may have to be moved to your new house. However, a lot of people have numerous items, such as grills and also patio furniture, outdoors that cannot be forgotten. Preparing along with packing outdoor belongings for a move might be like packing a lot of your indoor pieces of furniture, but as with almost all household belongings, you will need to be extra careful to do the job correctly. If not, you may reach your new house with damaged home furniture along with a dented-up grill.

Serious Cleaning

Even before packing a single throw pillow, perform some deep cleaning of the patio furniture as well as grill. When they aren’t nice and clean for the move, you might end up having dirt and grime on various other items that ride close to them within the moving van. Spray all surfaces of the patio and garden furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse using water. Make sure and pay attention to all of the crevices and cracks on the furniture. With regard to the grill, get rid of the soot as well as ashes from the inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Additionally, check with the manual to find out if there is a recommended cleaning product for the interior and exterior of the grill and to see if they may have further suggestions for cleaning.


After you've cleaned your furniture as well as grill, you can start to pack it up for your move. Remove pillows and cushions from the patio furniture and set them to the side. Take apart whatever furniture pieces that could be easily taken apart and be sure to keep track of all the hardware in a bag or box which you can label and attach to the frame. Cover the pieces of furniture in moving pads and be certain to cover all the sides using the pads. When they've been solidly packaged, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Be positive that any throw pillows and also cushions are completely dried before packing them in cartons. Label the boxes for simple recognition at your new house.

Take off grates, trays as well as small pieces from the grill and carefully cover them in packing paper and place them in boxes. You’ll want to take out the propane tank from the grill. Confirm with the moving company in Little Rock whether they can load 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 home, as the majority of professional movers in Little Rock will not transport anything flammable or combustible. Wrap the grill in moving pads and secure with packing tape for secure moving.

Remember that a professional mover in Little Rock can assist with the packing and moving of your outdoor furniture and grill (minus the propane tank).
