Keep These Items Off the Moving Truck

February 10, 2014


The task of packing up all your worldly possessions for a move, whether it’s around the world or around the block, can be overwhelming. I always start off so organized. Every box has a detailed label and only contain the things that belong there. after a while, though, I inevitably start throwing in random items. I’ve always got those odds and ends that don’t really go with anything else, but still need to be packed. This can be dangerous territory if you’ve hired movers, though. There are several items that are illegal for movers to transport. If you get caught, you could face federal fines up to $250,000 and 5 years of jail time!

Some things to keep out of your boxes:

  • Aerosols
  • Ammunition and guns
  • Charcoal
  • Cleansers containing bleach or ammonia
  • Fertilizer
  • Lighter fluid
  • Nail polish remover
  • Oil or gas of any sort
  • Paint cans
  • Pesticides and poisons

Keep these things in your car with you, and avoid problems with your move!
