Can I move my gas grill in a portable storage unit? Well, Freddie, the answer is yes, but pay close attention. I’m going to explain exactly how to do it to keep your grill safe, yourself safe, and not to hurt anything else inside your storage unit. So number one, the first thing and most important thing you have to do when moving a gas grill is make sure to separate the propane tank from the grill. Any kind of flammables or combustibles are strictly prohibited in any kind of moving container. This is obviously for safety reasons. So just make sure you separate it before you want to store your grill. Number two, you want to clean the grill very, very thoroughly. Grills sometimes have excess oil on them. They can have bits of food or anything dirty like that. You don’t want to get anything else dirty. You want to avoid bad smells inside the container. So make sure you scrub that thing really well, get rid of any residue, and then you’re ready to pack it up. Number three, secure the lid of the grill and any kind of part that may be detached from it in transit. So you want to tie it down. Make sure everything is really packed well so that during the move, nothing shifts, breaks, or separates from your grill. Keep it safe. The last thing you want to do, if possible, is use some sort of cover. I really recommend a rain-proof cover, something that’s water-resistant. You put it over the entire grill and that way it doesn’t get dirty, it doesn’t get messy, and it doesn’t mess anything else up in your storage unit. In conclusion, Freddie, yes, you can definitely move with your grill. Obviously, we all love to barbecue. We’re not going anywhere without it. Just make sure the one most important thing is really separate the gas tank. There are definitely no gas tanks allowed in any moving containers. Since gas tanks are pretty small, you can just pop it in your car, take it with you, it’s no trouble at all, and then reassemble it when you get to your destination.
