When moving, the garage is either the first thing you pack, or the last. The main reason is because the garage holds items that are either rarely used, boxes of old memorabilia, as well as tools used for the garden and inside the home. Here are 5 tips to help you pack up your garage and move easier and more efficiently:

 

  1. Have a Garage Sale

Now, having a garage sale comes with its own set of stress and patience and a lot of work. However, if you have the time and energy to hold a garage sale before you move, it is definitely recommended. Holding a garage sale allows you to get rid of all the old appliances, tools, clothing and trinkets that you no longer use. Doesn’t really make a lot of sense to simply move one packed box to another property where it will remain closed for years to come. A garage sale can help lighten your load, as well as put a little money in your pocket.

  1. Have the Right Supplies

It always happens when you’re in the grove of packing, covered in dust and sweat, when you learn that you have either run out of boxes or packing tape. Or, when you’re in the middle of moving, and the box your carting inside the house collapses, which just happens to hold your grandmother’s priceless glass dishes. It definitely helps to always over guess how many boxes you will need, as well as making sure that the bottom of each box is taped excessively to make it stable. Bubble wrap always helps a lot when dealing with glass items, but newspaper works just as well. Also make sure to always have moving blankets on hand as well for your larger pieces of furniture so there are no scratches.

  1. Know the Items That Cannot Be Moved

Many people should know that when moving, it is advised that there are some hazardous materials that shouldn’t be moved due to safety reasons. Items that are flammable that shouldn’t be moved and instead safely disposed of range from propane tanks, paints, gasoline, paint and paint thinner to pesticides, fertilizers and even some cleaning supplies.

  1. Packing Garage Items

Leave smaller hand tools in your tool box and close it securely. Make sure anything with a sharp blade is wrapped in either bubble wrap or newspaper to prevent any cuts. Bundle large garden tools such as rakes, shovels and brooms together with rope or tape to easily carry. Gas operated machinery must be emptied of their fuel before they are moved. Stack outdoor chairs and disassemble outdoor furniture to easily move.

  1. Labels

It’s a pretty daunting task when you finally have everything moved, and you choose to wait till the next day to tackle all those boxes. Except there is just one problem, you don’t know what is in any of the boxes. Make sure that while packing all those boxes, that you have a sharpie marker on hand to write on each of the boxes so you know the contents. This will make it easier for when you move so you know which boxes should be placed where.

 

Moving is always stressful, exhausting and takes a very long time to fully complete. It always helps to know how to tackle each room the easiest so that it can be finished quickly and as easily as possible.
