We assume that you have one of these in your garage. If so, it’s essential to ensure you’re handling it correctly—especially if you have a classic car. Talk with your moving company if you have a vehicle that can't be driven. Most movers will also have access to a trailer that they can use to tow your car.


If you have a motorcycle, you know how fragile it is and how easily it can tip over. Because of this, consider the following precautions.

  • Tie Down Straps

  • Large Shipping Crates


Ensure your grill has been properly cleaned before packing it in the moving truck. If you have a gas grill, remove the propane tank. Propane tanks will not be allowed in moving trucks due to the risk of explosion.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

Now is a great time to get rid of those old paints and flammable liquids that you've been holding on to for too long. If you check with your local government, you’ll be guided to a place where you can safely dispose of these items.

Lawncare and Landscaping Items

Even if you still need lawn equipment, sometimes getting new ones is just what you need to start refreshed in your new home. Consider selling your old equipment and upgrading to something newer.


If you have a toolbox, organize all of your tools in this container. Keep lock or tighten the toolbox doors securely so they don't swing open. And, if your toolbox has wheels, ensure that they're put in a closed position to keep the box from sliding around in the truck.
