How to Pack Tools and Outdoor Equipment


  • Long handled garden tools, as well as brooms and mops, should be bundled together securely. Attachments should be removed from power tools and packed separately.
  • Hand tools may be left in tool boxes and the spaces filled with crushed paper, or they may be packed according to the general packing rules. Always use small boxes because tools are usually heavy.

Outdoor Equipment

  • Before moving day, dismantle children’s swing sets, TV antennas and garden sheds. Gather pieces and bundle together with nylon cord. Place small hardware in a cloth bag and securely attach to the corresponding equipment.
  • Prepare lawn mower by draining gasoline prior to the day of loading.
