Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

If you're planning for a move, it's common to think about every item within your home that will have to be moved to your new house. However, many people have numerous items, such as grills and also patio furniture, outdoors that should not be overlooked. Preparing and packing outside things for a move may be like packing most of your indoor furniture, but like with almost all home things, it is important to take special care to do the job correctly. If you don't, you might reach your new residence having broken furniture along with a dented-up grill.

Serious Cleaning

Prior to packing a single cushion, carry out some detailed cleaning of the patio furniture and grill. When they aren’t clean for the move, you could end up with grime and dirt on a variety of other items which ride next to them inside the moving van. Spray all areas of the outdoor furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off with water. Be positive and clean all of the crevices and cracks about the furniture. With regard to the grill, get rid of the soot and ashes from the inside and wash the grease or ash catcher. Also, check with the manual to see if there exists a advised cleaning product for the interior and exterior of the grill and to find out if they may have additional ideas for cleaning.


After you've washed your patio furniture and also grill, you can start to pack it up for the move. Remove cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and place them aside. Disassemble all furniture items that can be easily disassembled and make certain to keep track of the hardware in a plastic bag or box that you can label and affix to the frame. Cover the pieces of furniture in moving pads and take care to protect all the sides with the pads. Once they've been solidly wrapped, secure the pads with tape to avoid damage. Be positive that any pillows and cushions are totally dried ahead of packing them inside boxes. Label the cartons for simple recognition at your new residence.

Remove grates, trays and also small parts from your grill and thoroughly cover them in packing paper and set them in boxes. You’ll also want to take out the propane tank from the grill. Determine with the moving company in Colorado Springs whether they can load the tank on the moving truck. You will likely need to haul it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank after arriving to your new residence, because most professional movers in Colorado Springs won't transport anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving blankets and secure with packing tape for safe moving.

Keep in mind that a professional mover in Colorado Springs can certainly help with the packing and moving of your patio furniture and grill (devoid of the propane tank).
