3 Easy Ways to Clean Out Your Garage

Option 1: Organize What You Have & Purge

If you have so many things in your garage that you don't know where to even begin, then a quick organization session could set your mind and your garage straight.

We've reduced how to organize a messy garage into four simple steps:

  • Take Inventory: make a list of your garage items
  • Sort & Group: group things into like piles
  • Throw-out & Recycle: get rid of items you don't need
  • Use Storage: fit remaining items into easy-to-move storage bins

When your messy garage is reduced to less stuff and more organization, the task of taking everything out is much easier.

Option 2: Move Extra Items to Off-Site Storage

If you have too many things to fit comfortably in your home or have items that you don't use frequently but still want to keep, consider renting a storage unit. A storage unit can provide a secure and convenient place to store your items, freeing up space in your garage and making it easier to empty out your space in a shorter period of time.

With the added benefit of climate-controlled units, you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe from weather-related damages.

Option 3: Use a Moving Service

If you have a lot of heavy or bulky items in your garage, it might be a good idea to hire a moving company to help you move them out. Professional movers have the expertise and equipment to safely transport your items, reducing the risk of damage or injury. Moreover, using a moving service can save you time and energy, allowing you to spend your time on other things. You can also choose between having movers place your items in a storage pod on your property, or off-site storage.

Before hiring a moving company, be sure to do your research and compare quotes from different providers. Look for a company that has experience with garage moves and offers liability insurance to protect your items in case of damage or loss. Also, consider scheduling the move in advance to ensure availability and to avoid last-minute stress.
