Removing the junk

This is the first things you should do and the first reason as to why you and only you should pack your tool shed. Most of us have tool sheds that are full of much more than just tools.

Packing everything dangerous

A lot of tools in the tool shed are dangerous ones. It is of the utmost importance that those items are safely secured so they do not harm anyone during the relocation. There are many ways to do this. It would be wise if you could gather up or buy a lot of different packing supplies and just start wrapping everything up. This goes especially is you are moving long-distance and you need your items to be well packed so they can endure the road. Everything that you can disassemble, do so. All pointy objects must be wrapped in bubble wrap and in many layers. Whatever you can fit in a box, do so, but previously wrap it. If you have smaller tools or something that can be easily lost, pack it in smaller boxes or bags and then again in bigger boxes. Also, remember to label those boxes as dangerous, just in case.

Packing everything fragile

You will, of course, label those boxes as fragile. Keep that in mind but do it last. Everything you have that is prone to damage and breakage should also be wrapped up. For example, if you have flower pots, you might want to pay extra attention to them when you pack. They are very fragile and can be broken in a second. Packing fragile and dangerous items is somewhat similar. You protect the dangerous ones so they do not harm someone or something else. You protect the fragile ones so they end up unharmed. Either way, make sure you use a lot of bubble wrap. Another tip, if you have a lot of room inside of the box, fill it up. You can use whatever, even newspaper. Styrofoam is the best choice but anything will do if you do not have any.

Flower pots
When packing something fragile like clay flower pots, for example, you must protect them perfectly.
