During a home relocation, different items will be transported from your current residence to the new one. Regular items like furniture and TVs will be transferred along with garage mainstays like automobiles and lawn care materials. These tips will help you figure out the best ways to move items in your garage.


Motorcycles are weighty and need some form of support for protection so that they don’t tip over during transport. That’s where specialized crating with tie-down straps helps. You can get the crates on the internet, but your local household moving company will provide highly trained professionals to properly prep your motorcycles for shipping.


If you can’t drive one of your automobiles to your new residence, or there’s a vintage car you want to transport, the trailers of many residential movers can accommodate most sizes of vehicles. Vintage cars are often worth a lot of money. If that’s the case with yours, you should also consider purchasing additional reimbursement coverage in the event of accidental damage during transport.


Moving pads and straps offer protection to the exterior of your grill. However, make sure components like grates and any other items within the grill are properly secured. This way, the parts won’t damage the grill’s interior during transport.

Dispose of any charcoal briquettes and propane tanks before taking off to avoid the risk of an explosion during the move. Moreover, there are many places you can sell propane tanks before moving.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

Before you move, properly dispose of any liquids, especially those that are flammable. You and your home movers can check with the local authorities regarding their rules for disposing of hazardous liquids.

Lawn Care & Landscaping Items

If you see no need for yard work at your new residence, you should consider selling your lawn mower and other yard tools to a friend, family, or neighbors. You can also leave them behind as a welcome gift for the incoming occupant to use. However, if you wish to take them with you, most yard tools are built for rough treatment. That means you don’t need special treatment to move them, not even from long-distance movers. Ensure every fuel storage container is empty before transport.


If there’s a tool chest in your garage, place all the tools inside it and lock the doors and drawers to stop them from spilling during the move. If you have wood or metal working equipment in your garage, you should consider crating them, especially if they have many complex components. A seasoned residential moving company can help you decide whether to take that step. Also, engage any wheel locking mechanism on the chest once in the truck to prevent any movement during transport.

Unwanted Items

It’s normal to have unwanted items pile up in your garage over the years. You can donate such items to a local charity. If large metallic items like grills and unwanted patio furniture are present, you can place them on the curb the day before garbage pickup. Local scrappers passing through neighborhoods on garbage pickup days in search of metal items sell them to a local facility for their scrap value.
