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 is common to think about every item within your house that may have to be moved to your new home. Having said that, many people have several things, like grills as well as patio furniture, outdoors that should not be ignored. Preparing as well as packing outside items for the move may be like packing some of your indoor pieces of furniture, but just as with just about all household items, it is important to take special care to complete the job properly. If not, you might get to your new home having destroyed pieces of furniture plus a dented-up grill.
 

Detailed Cleaning

Even before packing a single throw pillow, carry out some detailed cleaning of the patio furniture as well as grill. When they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you may end up having grime and dirt on a variety of other belongings which ride close to them inside the moving truck. Spray all areas of the patio furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off with water. Make certain and clean all the cracks and crevices around the furniture. Regarding the grill, remove the soot and also ashes from the inside and clean up the grease or ash catcher. Also, check with the manual to ascertain if there's a advised cleaning product for the inside and outside of the grill as well as check if they may have additional recommendations for cleaning.

Packing

Once you have cleaned your outdoor furniture as well as grill, you'll be ready to pack it up for your move. Take off cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and place them to the side. Disassemble whatever furniture pieces that can easily be disassembled and make certain to keep track of all the hardware in a plastic bag or box that you can label and affix to the frame. Wrap the pieces of furniture in moving blankets and make sure to cover all the sides utilizing the pads. Once they are securely packaged, secure the pads with tape to avoid damage. Be positive that any pillows and also cushions are completely dried before packing them within cartons. Label the cartons for quick identification in your new residence.

Remove grates, trays and smaller components from your grill and cautiously cover them in packing paper and place 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 in all probability need to transport it yourself or leave it behind and obtain a new tank after arriving to your new residence, as a general rule professional movers in Colorado Springs will not transport anything flammable or combustible. Wrap the grill in moving pads and secure with tape for safe moving.

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