Items that should NOT be Packed
It is also important to know which items should not be packed. These items should not be packed either because they are perishable, or the movers will not accept them. Generally, these items are perishables, such as food. In addition, the items that movers usually will not accept are flammable or explosive items such as lighter fluid, fertilizer, paint and paint remover or thinner, ammonia, weed killer, cleaning fluid or kerosene.
In addition, movers will not accept loaded weapons, ammunition, fireworks or car batteries. You should check with your movers if you have any questions on any items you want them to move.
It is also a good idea to move valuable or non replaceable items yourself. These items are things such as address books, photographs and videotapes, financial records, rare collections and jewelry.
