Preparing The Grill To Move: Clean This Grill

The important part of moving a grill is to ensure that you have prepared this. One of the first things to do is clean the grill! No one wants to move a grill full of grease and stuck food, one covered in dirt from setting outdoors, etc.

To clean any grill, most people find that if you heat it for 15 minutes, which is easier to do when you have a propane grill. After about 15 minutes:

  1. Turn the grill off.
  2. Take a wire brush and start to scrub the racks in the grill. You will find that dipping this wire brush in water can give you more power to clean this.
  3. Wear gloves and be careful of the surface while cleaning; it is going to be hot!


On the grill’s outside, you can use a rag and some soapy water to clean this off, then rinse this with water to get this clean.


Removing Items From The Grill

Most grills have some removable items. While you may have never thought you would remove these after installing this grill together when you purchased it, removing some items from this grill can make it easier to move and safer.

You may find it easier to remove the newly cleaned grates and pack these into a box. If you have any racks or other ways to store accessories with the grill, this needs to be removed and packed into a box. The key is to remove as many elements as possible to avoid breaking the grill and making it easier to move.


Propane Cannot Be Moved

For those who have a gas grill, the propane tank you use with your grill is something we cannot move. Propane is a hazardous material, and professional movers cannot move this. If you want it at your new location, then this is something that you will have to transport in your personal vehicle.

For those moving this summer, that does not mean that your grill is something you must tackle on your own when it comes time to move. The professional movers at Dunmar can handle it for you!
