In this blog post, the residential movers here at Solomon & Sons Relocation Services will offer tips for moving items in your garage. By following these tips, you'll make moving day a breeze!

Create A Plan 

Before you start moving any of your stuff, it's important to make a plan. Decide what you're going to take with you and what you're going to leave behind, and that includes the items in your garage. This will help you stay organized and avoid getting overwhelmed on moving day.

Start With The Big Stuff

Automobiles and motorcycles are both big items that require specialized moving services to get them moved. You can’t just use traditional moving services for these items. Some ways you can go about getting them ready to be moved is by:

  • Getting Reimbursement Coverage
  • Custom Crating & Shipping Service
  • Load Them On A Trailer

Grills and Other Flammables

Your BBQ grills contain charcoal and other flammable materials which you need to dispose of if you plan on moving them, so they won’t be a hazard. In regard to other flammable liquids in your garage, make sure you properly dispose of them as well. These include: 

  • Paints
  • Cleaning Solutions
  • Gasoline

Lawncare & Landscaping Items

You likely own a few landscaping items, such as a lawnmower, if you have a yard to take care of. Before your moving day, make sure they are emptied out to ensure that no surprise gasoline is left over. If you have any fuel storage containers, make sure they are emptied out as well. 


Properly secure any tools you have lingering in your garage in a tool chest. Make sure your tool chest is securely closed to avoid it opening up during transportation. Any tools that are bigger than your tool chest may need to be packed or crated depending on their size. 

Miscellaneous Items

Your garage also acts as a storage space, which means you likely have all sorts of left-over items lingering around. You can get rid of these by donating them or scrapping them. This can help reduce the number of items you need to move come moving day. 

Good Luck

We hope these tips have helped you prepare for moving day. Remember, by following these tips, you can make the moving process a lot easier. If you want to let someone else handle your move, then consider hiring long distance movers to pack and deliver your items for you! Good luck and happy moving!
