Sometimes there is confusion when you hire a mover to come and pack and eventually deliver your belongings to your new home. Usually, this will revolve around items that the mover simply will not pack up and deliver because it is against their company policy. These items are either unsafe, require special handling, and/or just can’t be loaded on the moving van.
In order to help people that are going through the process, we prepared the ABC’s of what NOT to move so you can be sure to not have them around when the local Removalists show up on moving day. Well, some of the items are people, animals, and valuables that you can have around just don’t expect the movers to handle any of those. LOL (hands off).
Aerosal cans, ammonia, or ammunition cannot be transported.
Batteries (car, boat, motorcycle, or RV)
Charcoal/lighter fluid and other flammable chemicals
Extinguishers (fire extinguishers)
Fertilizers or fireworks (just a really bad idea)
Guns (unless in a gun safe)
Household batteries (a few are okay but not too many)
Ice – Sounds crazy but freezer items including ice belong in an ice chest and with you
Jewelry – too high of a risk of loss
Lead based paints, Liquid bleach, Loaded guns
Oil – motor oils or really any oils should be avoided
Plants, poisons, or prescription drugs
Quaaludes (or any drugs especially of the illegal variety)
Sand, stones, or other landscaping
Tanks (especially propane tanks)
Utility boxes (cable company boxes, etc.)
Valuables – those should go with you not the mover
Window treatments that are attached to the house
Xbox and other electronics you don’t want broken
You will be responsible for moving yourself
Zoo – Okay no animals those ALL go with you (feel free to leave pests behind).
