When it is time to move, your garage can be one of the most difficult places to work with. Having a garage is a great place to store items that are outdoors-related or that you may not use too often. Unfortunately, packing up this space can present challenges. Fortunately, there are ways to make the process of packing up every item in your garage easier.
Downsizing Your Move
There is no better time than when you are moving to dispose of those old items that you may not want anymore. While everything may have sentimental value, sometimes that value fades over time. It may have been more convenient to keep older things outside the house but still nearby. In any case, if you have been thinking of getting rid of something, now may be the perfect time to toss out or give away a few items.
Boxes and Unboxed
Determining whether to put items into a box or to keep them out is not just a matter of size. Sometimes items that have a decent finish, such as a handsome vintage-style fridge, do well if you cover them in cardboard for the move. In cases where the items are small, you can easily box them up if you remember to limit the boxes. Do not put more than 50 pounds into any one box, and make sure there is some wiggle room inside so it does not burst open.
Into the Truck
Moving the boxes into the truck can be a fun bit of exercise, or it can turn into a chore in a hurry. When you get friends and family members together to get your garage moved, it can be enjoyable. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way and you end up doing the lion’s share of the work yourself. In these kinds of situations, you may want to enlist the help of professionals. Why beat yourself up doing this part of the move when other parts will also demand your attention?
Boxing Yourself In
Getting help with your move does not need to be limited to moving the boxes once they are full. In many cases, the items in your garage are not of extremely high value, and boxing them up yourself is not necessary. Getting professionals, such as those from Winter Moving, to help you with boxing up your items can save you a lot of time and hard work. Why get boxed in when you do not have to?
Being Ready in Advance
Sometimes your new place is not quite ready for moving day. In this situation, you may not have an easy solution for storage. At the same time, leaving your items in your old place may not be an option. Winter Moving has the solution in the form of in-town storage facilities. You can have your items safely stored until you are ready for them, then have them delivered at your convenience.
Help All the Way
It is easy to invite people over for a small amount of help. However, sticking it out and helping the entire way through is a lot to ask. This is one of the best reasons why good companies like Winter Moving offer help all the way through your move. Whether you need help packing up your garage, moving the boxes, storing, hauling or moving in, we have you covered.
