Packing yourself? What not to pack

January 24, 2011

You must know that moving companies will not move any type of items. There are certain objects or chemicals that are not proper for moving even in short distances. If they are not handled correctly the risk of ruining belongings or even fire is quite substantial. Some are highly inflammable.

Even if you are packing by your self you should take some time to pack those items carefully. If some of your possessions require special packing and handling, contact your moving company to provide to you with any specific information you need. Preferable before you begin packing.
