When rearranging around the house, your belongings will often end up in the garage.

Most people have one of these in their garage. However, how many of us have vintage cars that can't necessarily be driven to your new home? To move your vintage vehicle, you'll want to communicate with your moving company to ensure they can handle it. Most moving companies will be able to offer a trailer that can tow your vintage ride.


If you own a motorcycle, then you know that fear of it tipping over and becoming damaged. Because of this, you'll want to ensure that your moving company offers custom crafting and can tie down the motorcycle, preventing it from falling over and damaging.


Several precautions should be taken when moving a grill. Not only do you want to ensure that all grates are tightly secured in place, but you'll also need pads and straps to hold the grill steady. If you're moving a propane grill, do not put the tank in the moving truck. With rising heat levels, there's a risk of explosion—you'll want to sell your tank to a local gas company.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

There's no need to continue holding on to old paints you'll likely never use. The best thing to do here is to dispose of stains and flammable liquids before moving correctly. Check with your local government to find a place where you can safely dispose of these items.


If you have a toolbox in your garage, you'll want to ensure that all of your tools are correctly placed inside the box. Also, ensure all doors of the box are locked and won't open up inside the truck. Secure the wheels of the toolbox to prevent it from sliding in the moving truck.
