Moving is stressful, but packing the garage can be even more intimidating than moving into a new house. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of your stuff and forget about what you actually need to pack. I’ve compiled this guide to help make sure that everything goes smoothly when it comes time for you to pack up your car, truck or van.
Now that you’ve created a list of everything in your garage, it’s time to start packing. For this step, create separate files for each item on your list: one for each item (and its accompanying packaging) and another for packing rules.
You may want to consider buying a pack rat-sized storage box for all of your lesser-used belongings. When you’re done, this will give you the space and ease of mind that comes with having everything together in one place–and it’ll make it easier to store or transport your garage items as well.
You can easily find these boxes at Walmart, and Hardware stores across the country (and online). They come in various sizes and shapes, so there’s something for everyone!
If you have any items that are broken or damaged, don’t let them sit around in your garage! Instead of storing them there, consider donating them to charity. There are many organizations that can help you do this.
Don’t be afraid to dispose of any broken or damaged items, even if they’re sentimental to you (and it isn’t a good idea to store them in the garage). If someone is willing to donate their old toys and games, instead of taking up space in their home and cluttering up their life with useless junk – why not give them what they need?
There are so many ways to pack a garage that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But don’t worry—we’re here to help! Just follow our tips, and you’ll be packing your garage like a pro in no time at all. Get the items that won’t fit in your new house into a storage unit asap!
