The whole moving process can be very exciting but it is also quite stressful and tiresome. And during the whole chaos of moving and organizing everyone and everything, you need to pack. But what to pack? You can’t move your entire home, all of your belongings, from a fancy picture you never put anywhere to your kids smallest toys. You need take a moment and re-organize everything in your head, as there are certainly items that you can set aside, some to be left behind or thrown away, some special items, to be packed by the movers you hired.
When you’ve planned your move, hired a moving company, organized a moving day, discussed all of the moving services you’ll be needing, don’t forget to ask about them what items they cannot or will not transport. Because most, if not all, moving companies have a list of items they will not touch, ranging from dangerous goods to some household items that are known to break easily, no matter how hard one tries. Even though you should check for yourself, here’s a list of the most common items that moving companies won’t touch:
- Lighter Fluid
- Car batteries
- Nail polish and Remover
- Loaded weapons
Some items you might find too valuable and should keep them close, some are too dangerous, and others are should just be left behind for obvious reasons. Here are a few tips to help in your decision-making process.
