Is your family getting prepared for your upcoming move? Are you intimidated to even enter your garage because of how much has built up over time? For many families, a garage quickly goes from a place to store vehicles to a place to store miscellaneous items for your home. Due to the types of items that typically end up in your garage, this is one of the most difficult areas of your home to pack. To help get you prepared for your next move, our team at Capitol Moving & Storage believe that it’s necessary for us to share some effective tips for packing your garage prior to moving.
Organization is Key
To help make packing your garage a little simpler, it is critical that you organize your belongings before starting to pack things up. Packing like items together will help speed up the moving process and it will also make things much easier for you when you begin to unpack at your new home as well. Without organization, you’ll find yourself spending more time trying to find items than actually packing your garage prior to moving.
Donate Unused Goods
Chances are that you or your children don’t even touch half of the items in your garage that have built up over the years. Now is the perfect time for you to go through these items and give away or donate any of the items that you don’t plan to use in your new home. Once you decide to get rid of some of these items, you’ll quickly realize that you should have donated these items years ago!
Tackle the Garage Early
Packing up the garage should not be the last room that you pack up. In fact, it probably should be one of the first rooms that you work on packing. The reason is because packing up your garage can be an overwhelming, long process. This is not one of the rooms that you want to pack up when you’re exhausted from packing up all of the other rooms of your home.
Remove Fuel from Equipment
For the safety of all parties involved, it is important for you to use up or get rid of all of the gasoline in any of your gas powered equipment. Leaving gas in your equipment can be very dangerous, especially when transporting equipment during a move.
There’s a lot to think about when it comes to packing up your garage.
