Top Tips For Choosing The Best Auto Transport Quotes


You’ve signed your name on the dotted line and you’re ready to move into your dream home—until you’ve realized that packing up your entire garage is a bigger task than what you’ve bargained for. Packing up a garage is one of the most challenging aspects of moving, but fortunately there are techniques to help you get organized and ready for moving day. Here are DIY’s top tips to pack a messy garage when you’re moving to a new home: The first step to packing up a messy garage is to give yourself plenty of time. As soon as your offer is accepted on your new home, it’s time to get busy. You’ll likely need to set aside a full day (or two) to clean out your garage in its entirety. It helps to make the de-cluttering process a family project or even invite some friends over for an extra hand (pro tip: bribe them with pizza if all else fails.) Be sure that you have very sturdy packing supplies on hand, such as durable cardboard boxes or plastic containers. You’ll also need tape and a marker for labeling. Go through everything in your garage from top to bottom—no stone should be left unturned. Be sure to sort through drawers, boxes, cabinets, and any other nooks and crannies that you have in your garage. The next step is to create three piles: keep, donate, or sell. If you have to think about about keeping an item for more than a couple seconds, throw it into your donate or sell pile. While you’re creating a “keep” pile, assort your belongings into categories such as tools and sports equipment. Keep in mind that a professional moving company won’t take things such as propane or paint. These items should be safely discarded before the move. Once you’ve determined the items that you want to keep and they’re boxed away, get rid of the other piles before you move. Transporting a bunch of unwanted items to your new home will only increase clutter and put you back in the same spot. Cleaning and packing a messy garage is time consuming, and putting it off will only make the job feel more chaotic. Give yourself plenty of time for sorting and packing, and do away with items that you can live without. Moving to a New Home?
