Garage containing boxes and household items

When preparing for the move, there are probably so many different things going through your mind. Hiring the right residential movers can save you tons of trouble and headache. Considering all the things you need to move out of your home can be overwhelming, especially when you start to think of all of the items in your garage.

This blog will discuss the best ways to get those items out of your garage. But, before we spill our secrets, we thought you might want to know a little more about us.

Most of us have at least one or two of these in our garage. However, how many of us have a classic car meant more for looking at rather than driving? If you have a vehicle that can't be driven, you'll want to check with your moving company to ensure that they have a trailer option allowing you to tow your car.


You should always be cautious when moving a motorcycle because they're heavy and can be tipped over easily. Consider these solutions when transporting a bike:

  • Tie Down Straps
  • Moving Crate


Ensure that your grill has been properly cleaned out before moving it to prevent ash and dirt from spilling over your other belongings in the moving truck. Furthermore, remove the propane tank and adequately dispose of it if you have a gas grill. Propane tanks will not be allowed in moving trucks due to the risk of explosion.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

Now is a great time to get rid of those old paints and flammable liquids that you've been holding on to for too long. Check with your local government office to find the nearest place where you can dispose of paint and flammable liquids.

Lawncare and Landscaping Items

These will most likely still be valuable tools at your new residence. Make sure they're securely strapped inside the moving truck to prevent them from falling over on your other items. Also, be sure to empty all of the gas to avoid an explosion.


If you have a toolbox, organize all of your tools in this container. Keep lock or tighten the toolbox doors securely so they don't swing open. And, if your toolbox has wheels, ensure that they're put in a closed position to keep the box from sliding around in the truck.
