The garden is an area that is often overlooked when people plan their move to a different city. However, this is something that you need to avoid as you have to take care to transport your garden furniture correctly. There are a number of points that you should consider to ensure that there is no breakage during transit or stress on moving day.
Transporting Patio Furniture
The largest garden furniture that you are going to be transporting is likely to be your patio furniture. Before you start packing up the furniture, you will need to clean it and remove all of the first and grime that has accumulated over the years. You should first rub them with an old towel or rag to remove the surface dirt. You can then use a multi-surface spray to clean the remaining dirt and grime from the furniture.
After your patio furniture is clean, you need to wrap it up. This will reduce the chances of damage and also prevent any injuries as a result of walking into chair legs. Bubble wrap should be placed over all of the sharp corners and over the tops of tables, particularly if they are made of glass.
If you are going to move your possessions to your new city yourself, you need to be careful when packing the van. Patio furniture is often heavy and could cause breaks in more fragile items if they fall. It is important that you secure the furniture correctly and do not place it on top of anything that could break.
There are a lot of people who buy expensive lighting for their garden and would like to take this with them when they move. If you are one of these people, you need to ensure that you pack the lighting with enough padding. Using bubble wrap is recommended, but it is important to note that solar powered lights can be more durable when it comes to the occasional knock.
Your garden ornaments are going to be more durable than your interior ornaments, but this does not mean that they will not break if not transported correctly. You need to wrap the ornaments in bubble wrap to limit the chances of them breaking. You also need to pack them into boxes instead of leaving them out to be packing individually into the van.
Packing your garden ornaments into a box will increase their protection. Additionally, you will be saving space in the van by putting all of the items together. Of course, as these ornaments are generally heavier than interior ornaments, the box could become heavy and will need to be packed at the bottom of a pile.
There are a number of steps that you need to take to ensure that you transport your garden furniture correctly. Different pieces of garden furniture will require different packing techniques and you need to be aware of this. Patio furniture will generally be the biggest piece of furniture and you need to ensure that it is clean before you move it.
