Are you looking to get ready for your move, but dread the actual process of getting your garage ready for the move? Then look no further as the experienced residential movers here at Thomas Transfer & Storage will go over some tips for moving items in your garage. With these tips on hand, you can make the moving process a bit less stressful.

Flammable Items

If you own a garage, you likely also store some chemicals and flammable materials inside of it. From paints to gasoline, there are a variety of potential hazards in your garage that you need to dispose of properly before your move. If any flammable items are being moved, you risk a potential explosion and other serious injury from occurring. Make sure that any items that hold flammable materials are emptied out or disposed of, such as:

  • Grills
  • Propane Tanks
  • Landscaping Tools
  • Lawn mowers

General Tools

Your garage is also likely a place where you store all of your tools. From crowbars to wrenches and drills, you likely have a vast assortment of tools sitting around in your garage. If you have a lot of tools, make sure to properly secure them in a tool chest before your move. For larger and heavier tools, consider crating them to make sure they are safely transported.

Automotive Vehicles

Arguably the most valuable and heaviest items you need to move in your garage are your automotive vehicles. From trucks, cars, to even motorcycles, your automotive vehicles take up the most space in your garage, and they might even be more of a pain to move. Fortunately, there are ways you can get them moved and they include:

  • Trailer Transportation
  • Vehicle Shipping Service
  • Motorcycle Shipping Crates
  • Reimbursement Coverage

If you are moving a long distance and don’t want to handle this on your own, then make sure to contact your local long distance mover today!

Extra Items

Your garage acts as a storage space not just for outdoor items, but also for indoor items as well. If you have items like old furniture, toys, and other items you don’t need or use, make sure to get rid of them before moving. You can donate them to a local charity or dispose of them properly at a dumpster. The less you need to move the better.
