When moving your home or workplace, a professional moving company like ours can save your life. Whether it’s snowing, raining, or sunny outside, our movers will pack every item you own, carry heavy furniture and boxes up and down stairs, and carefully load and unload the moving truck.
At AJ Moving Services, our professional packers can assist you through the simple, streamlined moving process. Unfortunately, some goods are not allowed to move because the law prohibits them for various reasons. Our moving movers know which objects are not authorised to be loaded on moving trucks for delivery.
In this article below, you’ll discover prohibited items that Lakewood and Colorado movers may not transport onto large moving vehicles. The prohibition could be for local, regional, and cross-country transport.
List of Prohibited Items for a Moving Company
The items you should not pack on a moving truck for local or long-distance moving firms are discussed below. You must properly dispose of these goods or carry them yourself rather than loading them aboard a commercial moving truck. Here are some of the very common items that are prohibited:
- Flammable materials
- Household chemicals
- Expensive/irreplaceable household items
- Explosive materials
- Corrosive chemicals
- Ammunition and guns
- Cleansers containing bleach or ammonia
- Oil or gas of any sort
- Pesticides and poisons
Items you should avoid to pack on a moving truck
If you are moving or planning to move, you should protect your most valued possessions, including food, plants, and other essential items. It would be best if you also took care of your personal belongings to prevent any losses on your personal property and ensure you carry them with you.
Tips for Safely Handling Hazardous Items
Hazardous items can cause fire by exploding or damaging what is packed into the truck. These items can ignite on their own, blast, burn, or otherwise damage the other items of the truck and everything in its vicinity. They may potentially endanger the lives of truck drivers, professional movers, and other vehicles.
Instead of trying to transport prohibited items on a local and interstate moving truck, safely recycle them. Take them to a legally accepted hazardous waste disposal facility.
If you have such items or need greater detail about hazardous items, talk to our professional movers at AJ Moving Services.
You Cannot Relocate Food with Professional Moving Company
Besides hazardous items, food is also prohibited from moving. Be it any food, movers cannot move it, especially if you’re moving far away. We recommend eating your leftovers from the fridge immediately if you are moving soon. Food may destroy many things and make a tremendous mess, even though it is not nearly as toxic as hazardous items.
We suggest placing the food items you want to relocate in a sizable cooler and driving them yourself. Another fantastic option is to donate the food to your neighbourhood food bank if you don’t want it to waste.
Homeowners must transport some essential household products by themselves. Here’s a list of items you should carry with yourself:
- Personal documents
- Credit/debit cards
- Your home and car keys
- Collections and artworks
- Family heirlooms
Pets are Not Allowed in Moving Trucks
Did you know?
Pets are not allowed on mover’s moving trucks. You have to fly or drive with your pets or use a firm specialising in moving pets. In other words, no matter how much you’d like to, you will not be able to carry your beloved pet inside a moving truck on its way to your destination.
Pets are vulnerable to injuries and even can face dehydration, perhaps far worse. There are a few tips for pets during move and safe ways to transport your pets though. One of them is by transporting them in your vehicle. They’ll feel more at ease, and you may stop to let them out for quick walks to relieve themselves.
Can't Leave Your Plants Behind? Here's How to Move Them!
When using a local and interstate moving company, most people want to move their potted plants and other vegetation from their landscaping.
While AJ Moving Services understands that you want to keep these grown parts of your indoor and outdoor décor, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to pack them onto a moving truck. Plants cannot endure the heat and stress inflicted on them within moving vans.
If you are a resident, consider transporting your plants yourself, no matter where you relocate.
However, many states require that you keep your vegetation within their borders to prevent the spread of dangerous plant invaders. Lawmakers in these states work hard to safeguard agriculture and environmental security. Thus, if you’re moving from one place to another, it is generally best to take your green thumb along but leave the plants behind.
These are guidelines you should follow while packing your belongings .This guide has all the necessary information you need to know about what items a professional moving company cannot move.
Make sure you use a professional moving company to make the moving process easier and more effective. It saves you time and keeps your possessions safe. If you’re preparing to relocate, contact AJ moving company and plan your move right away!
