Earlier we provided a list of items that are normally forgotten during a move, now we want to provide you a list of items that are typically not allowed on a moving truck. These items are hazardous, perishable, sentimental or personal in nature and will either cause harm to others or put your personal information in jeopardy if obtained by the wrong person.
|Charcoal/Lighter Fluid||Nail Polish|
|Chemistry Sets||Paint Thinners|
|Fire Extinguishers||Pool Chemicals|
|Household Batteries||Weed Killer|
|Foods without adequate preservation|
|Open or Half-Used Foods|
|Address Books||Insurance Policies|
|Airline Tickets||Jewelry and Furs|
|Cell Phones||Medical/Dental Records|
|Checkbooks||New Home Documents|
|Computer Data Files/Backups||Prescription Medications|
|Family Photographs/Photo Albums||Professional Files|
(stocks, bonds, CDs, IRAs, deeds, tax records)
Keep in mind the items not to pack just as you would the items you want to pack. Remember: the safety of your belongings, your information and the employees of the moving company come first. A special thanks to our partner Mayflower Transit for providing a few of the items on these lists. Find more information on this topic on the Mayflower website.
