Don't Forget Your Outdoor Items

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

If you are preparing for a move, it's only natural to take into account all the items within your residence that may have to be moved to your new house. However, many people have several things, including grills as well as patio furniture, outdoors which cannot be ignored. Preparing and also packing outside items for a move might be like packing some of your indoor furniture, but just as with most home items, you will need to take special care to do the job right. If not, you might get to your new house having broken household furniture plus a dented-up grill.

Deep Cleaning

Before packing a single cushion, do some deep cleaning of the patio and garden furniture and grill. If they aren’t nice and clean for the move, you may end up getting dirt and grime on other items which ride beside them within the moving truck. Spray all areas of the patio and garden furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off with water. Make certain and clean all of the crevices and cracks on the furniture. For the grill, get rid of the soot and also ashes from inside and clean the grease or ash catcher. Additionally, check with the owners manual to find out if there exists a suggested cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of the grill as well as see if they have further suggestions for cleaning.


After you have cleaned your furniture and grill, you'll be ready to pack it up for the move. Take off cushions and pillows from the patio furniture and set them to the side. Disassemble any furniture items that can easily be disassembled and make sure to keep track of all the hardware in a bag or box which you can label and attach to the frame. Wrap the furniture pieces in moving pads and be certain to cover all the sides with the blankets. After they've been securely packaged, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Make sure that any throw pillows and also cushions are completely free of moisture ahead of packing them within boxes. Label the boxes for easy recognition in your new home.

Remove grates, trays as well as smaller components from your grill and carefully wrap them in packing paper and put them in boxes. You’ll want to take out the propane tank from the grill. Determine with the moving company in Denver whether they can transport the tank on the moving van. You will more than likely have to move it yourself or leave it behind and obtain a new tank soon after arriving to your new residence, as most professional movers in Denver will not move anything flammable or combustible. Cover the grill in moving pads and secure with packing tape for safe moving.

Remember that a professional mover in Denver can certainly help with the packing and moving of your garden and patio furniture and grill (without the propane tank).

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
