Pack and Move Your Outdoor Furniture the Right Way

Buyers invest in outdoor furniture pieces so it’s only normal to bring these items when moving to a new home. With proper care and handling methods, outdoor furniture can last for a long time. If you are planning on moving, it’s important to know how to properly move your outdoor furniture so it arrives safely to your new home. Here are some tips that you should bear in mind:

Clean It

Outdoor furniture that is exposed to weather can easily become dirty. Before you pack your outdoor furniture, make sure that you spend time cleaning it thoroughly. You don’t want to bring dirt from your old home to your new one. Also, cleaning your outdoor furniture before packing it will make your items readily available for use in your new home. Our products here at Palm Casual can be cleaned easily by using Clorox and water (with 50-50 ratio).

Wrap It Up

Most indoor furniture and outdoor furniture need to be disassembled in order to move them. Here at Palm Casual, all our products come as they are – no need for taking them apart. All you need to do is to properly wrap whatever’s exposed – table legs, chair arms, etc. This is just to prevent damage during the move. You also do not want to run into something sharp or hard unexpectedly, so this is really a safety measure. If you opt to hire professional movers, inquire about their proper packing procedures and the materials they use. Some movers have different specific boxes for challenging items.

Pack Properly

The most crucial part is the proper packing technique. When moving outdoor patio furniture, it is best to remove all padding from your patio tables and chairs. These paddings should be packed separately – you will also find them easily once you’ve settled.

Move with Care

It is essential to take safety precautions when moving the items yourself. In order to avoid injury, items should be properly lifted especially when you’re loading heavy items. Be sure to wear close-toed shoes and bend from the knees, not the back. If you have existing injuries, it is best to not get involved with the move.
