Packing Patio Furniture – Is Moving & Storage Service Required
What Supplies You Need For Moving Your Outdoor Furniture
Moving is, by far, one of the most stressful activities a person can endure. That’s why careful planning is the key to successful moving projects. Among all the tasks a moving process involves, the most important is packing. When it comes to packing your belongings, you have two options: to do it yourself or to hire a professional moving & storage service. If you decide to go with the first one, then you should read the rest of this article.
Among all the things you have to move, there is the outdoor furniture. Today we will teach you how to properly pack and move your garden furniture.
Many homeowners think that taking the outdoor furniture with them when they change homes isn’t worth the trouble and they decide to leave it behind. However, patio furniture doesn’t come cheap, and if there would be an easy way to take it with you, then I’m sure you would appreciate it. Luckily, there is.
The secret of successful furniture moving is packing. If you follow the steps below, you’ll be able to pack your garden furniture and transport it with no problems. Here’s what you have to do.
Because it’s constantly exposed to outside dust and debris, your patio furniture sure it’s dirty. So, the first step is to clean it properly. Using a hose, a sponge and some detergent, you can make it look new. Once it’s done, leave it to dry properly.
For the next step you’ll need packing tape, bubble wrap, picture boxes and a toolkit. We highly recommend you use brown or clear packing tape rather that duct tape and scotch. It’s much stronger and it sticks better. Disassemble your garden furniture entirely and put all bolts and screws together in a plastic bag.
Most patio tables have a glass top. As you can imagine, this raises a problem as glass is very fragile and requires special care when packing. That’s why you should use bubble wrap and picture boxes. Both can be found at your local supply store. Don’t forget to label these boxes as fragile so that your moving & storage service provider won’t put anything on top of it.
