What’s in your garage? Pack it up the easy way with Allied Pickfords

How many power tools are in your garage or shed? There's probably far more than you'd care to admit. You might even have the odd sports bag from your days as an aspiring tennis player or cricketer, and you don't know how to pack it all up.

When you're moving house, there are often so many rooms in your existing home to deal with, that places like the garage or garden shed get overlooked until the last minute. This is not a good strategy – these are spaces where heavy machinery is often stored, and they're usually in need of a good clean.

We have everything you need to make packing up your garage or shed as easy as possible.

At Allied Pickfords, we have everything you need to make packing up your garage or shed as easy as possible, so you can focus on what's really important.

Getting everything into boxes

While there's not much point trying to fit a huge lawn mower and hedge trimmer and chainsaw into boxes, there are smaller tools you'll have lying around that can't be loose in a truck. They might have a carry case or a box you store them in already. If not, these heavy tools should be packed into cardboard boxes.

IBISWorld data states that the hardware wholesaling industry in Australia is worth $16 billion in annual revenue. Australians are always looking at new tools and hardware, and no matter how much we use them, the tools always end up in the shed or garage. However, while some aren't very big, they are still heavy. Using a normal cardboard box is therefore not an option. Boxes that you'd find behind a supermarket, for example, aren't specifically designed to hold large weights. The boxes that your Move Consultant will provide are, though.

An Allied Pickfords packing box comes in many shapes and sizes, and can hold up to 400 kilograms.

What might be lying around?

GizModo suggests there are some tools that are essential for every home – a jigsaw, an impact driver, an orbital saw and a hammer drill are just four you might have. These likely came in a case from the shop, so if you still have those, pack the tools inside before putting the cases inside the larger cardboard box.

If you're a car enthusiast, or an aspiring mechanic, then you'll have automotive tools in your garage too. The same goes for golf clubs, laundry and pet items, and an entire car, although that won't fit in a box.

These are all easy to move – if you let Allied Pickfords take the reins. Get in touch today, and your Move Consultant will start organising everything with you as soon as possible.
