Things THAT Not Put On Van While Moving

Many reasons why you might need to hire professional movers. You may be moving for work or to be closer to family or to downsize after retirement. Whatever your reason, you probably have a lot of things to pack up and move to a new location. But did you know that there are certain items that your moving company will not move?

Things Your Mover Wouldn’t Move

When you're planning to move, you probably have a pretty good idea of ​​what you'll be bringing to your new home. But there are things your movers won't move. Ask your moving company for a full list of items that cannot be shipped and read some examples.

·      Insecure and Flammable Materials

Flammable and insecure materials pose a significant fire hazard, and professional moving companies want to avoid any potential fire. In addition, there are strict regulations regarding the transportation of these materials and most moving companies simply do not want to deal with this problem.

If you have any of these items that you need to move, you will need to plan to move them yourself. Sorry!

1.     Aerosol

2.     Bleach Bottles

3.     Any type of Fireworks

4.     Kerosene

5.     Opened Box Matches

6.     Nail polish remover

7.     Paint thinner

8.     Pesticides

9.     Propane tanks

10.                        Weed killer


·      Putrescible Foods

Professional moving companies will generally not move perishable food such as dairy, produce, meat, etc. This is because it is a food safety issue. These items need to be kept at a certain temperature to prevent them from going bad and potentially getting sick. If food is not kept at the correct temperature during transport, it could spoil and be dangerous.

In addition, food can attract pests. If food is left outside, it can attract bugs or other animals that could get into the moving truck and infest the rest of the stuff.

·      Plants in Pots

When it comes to moving plants, regulations vary from state to state regarding what types of plants can cross state lines. Once you've verified that your plants are legal to transport, you'll need to plan to move them yourself. And remember that plants can be difficult to move because they need light and water during the journey, so you may want to consider giving them away before you move.

·      Alcohol and wine

Your moving company won't help you move that case of wine or bottle of whiskey you've been saving for a special occasion. This can be attributed to some significant risks associated with transporting alcohol. Liquor laws vary from state to state and country to country, and some states have restrictions on the amount of alcohol that can be transported into the state. Additionally, alcohol is flammable, so if not transported properly, it can be dangerous for everyone involved. If you have a particularly valuable wine collection, look for a wine moving company to move your collection safely (and legally) for you.

Bottom Line

Most professional movers have very strict policies about what is allowed and what is not. There are things they just won't move with. These items may be dangerous to transport. Before planning your move, you need to carefully consider what your movers can and cannot move.
