Of all the areas in your home, packing up the garage might prove to be the most challenging. The garage is often a place to store long-forgotten and hazardous items. Even if you have been diligent in keeping your garage in order, there is still a lot of work to do when it is time to pack up. Here are some tips for packing your garage for the big move.
