Removal companies generally offer a removal service that includes packing up your household goods for you. Trek Removals specialises in London removals, commercial storage services and packing. If you don’t fancy doing the hard work let us do it for you!
That said, we understand when people prefer to do the packing themselves, which is why we are continuing with our blog series on packing up the individual rooms and items. We have already taken you through packing up the Lounge, the Kitchen and the Bedroom, now it is time to really get your hands dirty and pack-up the garage and shed.
Some homes might not have both, but if you live in a house, you will most likely have a garage. The items that are stored in a shed or garage are often similar. It’s where a lot of junk and dirt can accumulate too.
First task is to sift through the garage/shed and unearth the items and objects you no longer need or want, and chuck them out! The less mess and clutter the better. You want a fresher start when you move into your new home.
If you own a bicycle make sure you loosen, lower and turn the handlebars at right angles to save space. Clean and cover the bicycle chains and the pedals with corrugated card to protect other items from being snagged.
Any sharp objects such as garden shears or tools should corked and bubble wrapped in many layers.
Drain the fuel and oil from lawn mowers and any other machinery before packing them away. Remove blades and place them in sturdy boxes. Mark properly. You don’t want to forget where you store your sharp objects when it comes to unpacking, it could easily lead to a nasty accident.
Drain your garden hoses, coil them up and then pack them in boxes. Secure any brooms, shovels, and other long-handled tools together with handywrap. Make sure the binding around the wrap is tight.
If you use the garage or shed for any additional storage of items make sure to catalogue, wrap and label them accordingly.
Trek Removals and storage services are always on hand to help you by supplying materials, helping you pack and transport your furniture/goods to your new home, particularly if you require a London move.
