When moving cross-country or a long-distance move, after packing the whole house people often forget about forthcoming garage packing which is not very easy. Without any exageration, garage is full of unknown tools and unpredictable equipment and it is the space that we dread packing. Take a deep breath and follow our tips for the smartest ways to pack up your garage before moving.
First, sort belongings by creating two parts in your garage: the things you are taking with you to a new home and things you don’t need or use anymore. Choose what you’ll sell or get rid of, and what you’re keeping that can’t be packed for the movers to carry. You don’t want to start with a crowded garage in your new home.
As you can see, you need to know what you need to pack, do the shopping list for items you would probably need while packing. For the garage stuff, it could be really special in sizes or purpose packing boxes and materials. To save money, you can ask if used moving boxes are available from grocery or liquor and wine stores and arrange it with the store manager there. Purchase specialty packing materials and supplies at a local moving retailer, a mail service store, or an office supply outlet. Accessories like packing tape and packing paper, a box cutter and printed labels can be ordered; or packing peanuts are special things if you are going to go professional with it! The tape dispenser is another item that is smart to have when it comes to packing. It will save you time, frustration and your teeth too! 🙂
Gether all the things you decided to get rid of and add a price tag for. Tell your neighbors and friends about your moving and invite them to your garage sale and spend a nice time together for the very last time at that place!
The items can be donated, and everything that’s left can be bagged up and hauled off with the trash before moving day. You can even donate furniture, clothes, blankets, office equipment, and kitchen appliances to charities or families in need. These can always find a new home.
Most garages have hazardous materials that moving companies cannot move due to safety reasons and law. Liquids and flammables are among forbidden. Be sure to properly dispose of chemicals, aerosol cans, paint thinners, paints, gasoline, charcoal, paint, propane tanks, pesticides, and fertilizers before your moving day.
