You most likely have one of these in your garage. However, the situation has become a little more tricky if you have an automobile that can't be driven, such as a classic car. Go ahead and contact your moving company to ensure they can bring a trailer to tow your shiny whip.


If you have a motorcycle, you know how fragile it is and how easily it can tip over. Because of this, consider the following precautions.

  • Tie Down Straps
  • Large Storage Crate


Clean the grill well before you pack it in the moving truck to prevent ash from getting on your belongings. And if you have a gas grill, you'll have to dispose of the propane tank before moving. Due to the risk of explosion, propane tanks will not be allowed in the moving truck.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

You should take this moving opportunity to go ahead and dispose of all paints and flammable liquids that have been sitting around in your garage. If you check with your local government, you’ll be guided to a place where you can safely dispose of these items.

Lawncare and Landscaping Items

Consider selling your old lawn care items. A couple of hundred bucks could go a long way in helping out your moving needs.


Organize all of your loose tools in one toolbox. Once they've been put in a proper place, make sure to secure the toolbox doors; duck tape should work for this. Even more, lock the wheels of the toolbox to prevent it from sliding.
