Summer is the busiest time to move and most people have outside furniture and grills that need to be moved also. Here are some tips to help you move these items:
- Barbeques: Movers are not allowed to move propane tanks. You can either move them yourself or leave it and purchase a new one. If your grill has a grease catcher be sure to empty it. Natural gas barbeques should be disconnected prior to moving. Charcoal barbeques need to be cleaned out before moving day.
- Patio Furniture: Of course patio tables can be moved. Chairs that cannot be stacked like rod iron ones will have to be moved individually, but stack all others.
- Hot Tubs: These can be moved but usually require extra men. Be sure it is drained and clean prior to move day. Sometimes it is more economical to check with the store where you purchased it to see if they can move it for you.
- Propane Heaters: These need to be disconnected prior to move day. Remember, propane tanks cannot be moved by movers.
- Fire Pits: Need to be cleaned out before moving day.
- Firewood: Movers can take firewood, if it is boxed.
- Igloo Clay Fire Pits: They need to be cleaned out prior to moving day. If they have been used a lot, they can be brittle.
- Outside Flower Pots: Movers can certainly move these but be aware older clay pots can break easily. Containers that are already planted can also be moved locally, but there are restrictions for plants being moved long distance.
- Fountains: Movers can move these, but they need to be disconnected and drained prior to move day.
A little preparation will make moving your outside furniture efficient and cost effective.
