Declutter, Organize, and Prepare Your Garage

Declutter, Organize, and Prepare Your Garage for a Move with Griffin Moving & Storage

Moving can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to tackling the often-overlooked area of the garage. At Griffin Moving & Storage, we understand that preparing your garage for relocation requires a unique approach. Here are some helpful tips to help you effectively declutter, organize, and prepare your garage for a smooth move.

Step 1: Declutter

The first step in preparing your garage is decluttering. Start by sorting through all the items and categorizing them into three groups: keep, donate, and discard. This is the perfect opportunity to let go of items you no longer need, use, or want. Broken tools, old sports equipment, and long-forgotten projects can all find new homes or be responsibly disposed of. Remember, the less you have to move, the easier and more cost-effective your relocation will be.

Step 2: Organize

Once you’ve decluttered, it’s time to organize what remains—group similar items together—tools with tools, gardening supplies with gardening supplies, and so on. Use clear plastic bins for smaller items to keep everything visible and easily accessible. Label each bin clearly to save time when unpacking at your new home. Shelving units and pegboards can also be handy for keeping everything neatly arranged off the floor.

Step 3: Prepare for the Move

Now that your garage is decluttered and organized, it’s time to prepare for the move. At Griffin Moving & Storage, we recommend the following steps to ensure your belongings are moved carefully and professionally:

  1. Pack Smart: Use sturdy boxes for heavier items and pack them tightly to prevent shifting during transport. Wrap fragile items in bubble wrap or packing paper to avoid breakage.
  2. Disassemble Large Items: Disassemble large items like shelving units and workbenches if possible. Keep all screws and small parts in labeled bags to make reassembly easier.
  3. Secure Hazardous Materials: Ensure that hazardous materials like paints, oils, and chemicals are properly sealed and labeled. Some movers have restrictions on transporting these items, so check with us at Griffin Moving & Storage to ensure everything complies with safety regulations.
