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

When you're planning for a move, it is common to consider all the items inside your house which will need to be moved to your new house. However, a lot of people have quite a few items, including grills and also patio furniture, outside the house which should not be forgotten. Preparing along with packing outside items for a move may be similar to packing most of your interior furniture, but like with most home belongings, you will need to take special care to do the job properly. If you don't, you may reach your new home having damaged household furniture plus a dented-up grill.

Detailed Cleaning

Prior to packing a single throw pillow, carry out some deep cleaning of the patio and garden furniture and grill. In the event that they aren’t clean for the move, you may end up having grime and dirt on various other items which ride alongside them inside the moving truck. Spray all areas of the outdoor furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse using water. Make certain and clean all the crevices and cracks around the furniture. Regarding the grill, take out the soot as well as ashes from inside and clean up the grease or ash catcher. Additionally, consult the owners manual to ascertain if there's a advised cleaning product for the interior and exterior of the grill and to find out if they may have extra recommendations for cleaning.


After you have washed your furniture as well as grill, you can begin to pack it up for your move. Remove cushions and pillows from the outdoor furniture and set them to one side. Take apart any furniture items that can easily be disassembled and make sure to keep track of all the hardware in a bag or box that you can label and tape to the frame. Wrap the furniture pieces in moving pads and take care to protect all the sides with the pads. Once they've been securely wrapped, secure the pads with tape in order to avoid damage. Be sure that any throw pillows and cushions are completely dry prior to packing them inside boxes. Label the cartons for quick recognition in your new residence.

Take off grates, trays as well as smaller pieces from the grill and cautiously cover them in packing paper and put them in boxes. You’ll want to remove the propane tank from the grill. Confirm with the moving company in Dallas whether they can load the tank on the moving truck. You will probably need to haul it yourself or leave it behind and purchase a new tank soon after arriving to your new house, as a general rule professional movers in Dallas will not 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 Dallas can assist with the packing and moving of your patio furniture and grill (without the propane tank).
