Before your move, learn about non-transportable items, and they are items that you will want to make sure that you do not pack.

Once you've scheduled a moving date with our Brandon Transfer movers in Wellington, FL, you'll probably want to begin packing. Packing ahead of time instead of leaving everything until the last minute will help make the moving process a lot less stressful. However, you should be aware that there are certain things professional movers cannot move. These are called non-transportable items, and they are items that you will want to make sure that you do not pack.

Non-Transportable Items

Non-transportable items include items that are unsafe for transport because they could potentially endanger the safety of the movers, the truck or the other belongings that are being transported. They can also include items that are more vulnerable to breaking and causing a mess as well as items that hold personal value to you and are irreplaceable. The following are examples of such items:

  • Dangerous items - Items that could pose a safety issue for the drivers, as well as the truck, include fireworks, gasoline, lighter fluid, propane cylinders, oxygen bottles and matches. These items can cause physical damage to the truck and your belongings as well as cause injury to the movers. Other items, such as paints, paint thinners, nail polish remover, radiopharmaceuticals and automotive repair and maintenance chemicals are all considered hazardous as well. Firearms are generally also considered a dangerous item that most professional movers will not transport.
  • Non-dangerous items - Some items, such as perishable foods, foods stored in glass jars and prescription drugs, should not be packed for transport on a moving truck either. Perishable foods can rot while in the truck, spreading a foul odor over all of your belongings in addition to the interior of the truck. Glass jars are also vulnerable to breaking and leaking, which can cause food or liquids to seep into other boxes. As far as prescription drugs go, these are considered non-transportable because you should have them on you in case they are needed.
  • Personal items - Anything that has significant financial or sentimental value should not be packed into the moving truck. This could include cash, jewelry, family photos, personal collectibles, negotiable papers, moving documents, important personal papers and more.

When you begin to pack, make sure that you avoid packing these non-transportable items. These are items that you should move yourself. For more professional moving advice or to schedule a move in Wellington, FL, contact us at Brandon Transfer today.
