Moving Canned Goods to New Home

When I get ready to move to a new home, I buy myself two large trash cans with wheels. Seems like every new home needs new ones anyway. Then, when I go through my food - canned goods, glass jars of food that sometimes break, and even my canisters since they are heavy - and store all my food stuff in the new trash cans. The trash cans can hold a great deal of weight and they are easy to move with the wheels. And if anything breaks, the cans are water proof. I just roll the cans right up on the moving truck and away I go. Works great.

This great suggestion has been roaming around the net for several years.

One caveat: The rolling garbage containers can carry a heavy load, however, do read the load instructions that come with the bins. Be careful to avoid overloading the bins as the wheels and assemble can collapse if the load is too heavy.

Great idea. I wish more people would use trash cans for hauling.

Trash cans can be used for transporting many things in the back of a truck. Purchase the kind that has handles on it so you can hook a bungee cord to them to double secure the lid.

Using this method for hauling loose items in the back of a truck would decrease the amount of litter that collects on the roadsides.
