How to Pack Tools and Other Equipment when Moving in Vancouver BC

Sure you will need your tools while packing your belongings, but those tools will eventually have to be packed and moved as well so that they can reach the new destination safely, when you are moving in in Vancouver, BC or elsewhere in Canada.

The tools and equipment cover a broad category of items and include everything from a screw to a lawn mower.

Following are some tips that will help you in packing your tools and equipment properly.

Long Tools

Long tools usually refer to those tools that have long handling sticks such as mops and brooms. Rakes for garden are also considered as “garden tools”.

The best way to pack long tools is by wrapping them together in form of a bundle. If any of the tools have a cord or a power engine then it should be packed separately.

Smaller Tools

These are the smaller tools such as hammer and screw drivers. In order to pack these small tools properly it is best to use small boxes. Place the tools into small boxes and fill the boxes with some paper or foam to prevent the tools from crashing into each other while being moved. You can also simply put them in a tool box and pack the tool box in some carton where there is extra space available.

Other Equipment

If you have a garden in your original place then you will have to do quite a lot of packing. Things like swing sets and sheds will have to be packed together in form of bundles with the help of some cord.

If you own a lawn mower, then it will also have to be packed for moving. Make sure that the fuel of the mower is drained before packing it. If there is some hardware related to any outdoor equipment then it should be wrapped in some cloth or bubble wrap and placed along with the equipment safely.
