Removalist Packing Tips For Garden Tools

If you are looking to move your garden including the gardening tools. There are so many things that you need to pack that the task seems nearly impossible but if you follow our tips you can pack all of your garden and garden tools efficiently in Geelong.

Get All the Necessary Supplies

Your gardening tools require specific materials. This includes boxes of different shapes and sizes. Paper for filling extra space, tape to secure the boxes, bubble wrap to protect fragile items, and blankets to move large items. Remember that your garden tools are still prone to breaking if you take good care of them.

Clean Well and Remove Harmful Materials

Your garden tools are filled with harmful materials such as hazardous cleaning supplies, fertilizers, pesticides, and even gasoline. It is crucial to remove all those substances because they are safe to move and moving companies aren’t allowed to move them.

Select What you Really Need

Your garden and garage may contain a bunch of things that you don’t need or use so identify the garden tools that you will really need and place them on a separate side of the room. Keep in mind that you can’t move volatile liquids such as fuels, solvents, or paints so give them away.

Separate the things that you won’t need or don’t want to take with you and put them in a trash bag or donate what it is in a good condition.

Use Large Plastic Totes for Plants

If you have small plants or small garden tools you can use large covered plastic totes to store them. You can pack the things weeks ahead and let them in your storage room or garage for as long as you need and not worry about them getting damaged. Unlike boxes, plastic totes don’t suffer moisture damage.

How to Package large Garden Tools Accordingly

Clean properly the large garden tools. The blade ends of post-hole diggers and shovers should be padded and wrapped accordingly. Use tapes to secure the handles of the tools and make sure they don’t move outside of the box. Add foam or other cushion material so the blades don’t move in the box.
