Items That You Should Not Pack
- Plants - House plants are a wonderful housewarming decoration. These should be purchased when the move is complete, not brought from your old home. Some plants are invasive species and cannot cross state borders. Plants can also be damaged or make a mess if knocked over during the move. We recommend you give them new homes with your friends and family before your moving day. If a kind of plant is allowed to cross borders, keep it safely with you in the car.
- Perishable Foods - Perishable foods will do exactly that—perish—during a move. Food that is spillable, can spoil or rot if not refrigerated needs to be left behind. This can cause an odor and mess. Donate these to the local food bank or gift to your neighbors. For the drive to your new home, pack a lunch and cooler to have snacks along the way.
- Flammable Items - Under no circumstance should you pack flammable items on a moving and packing services’ van. These items pose a threat and are dangerous to move. Firearms and fireworks are not allowed, and, gasoline, kerosene, aerosol cans, and more need to be given to your local hazardous waste site to dispose of. Empty your lawn mower and all power tools of fuel too.
Follow these tips about house plants, perishable foods, and flammable items and do not pack them on your moving truck. Avoid the unnecessary risks and handle everything else going on with your move. Be sure to ask your professional moving and packing services to see if they have any additional restrictions.
