Moving Tips: What Not To Pack

by Angela On May 26, 2011

If you’re planning to move this summer, you may want to start figuring out what you can and cannot pack on to a moving truck.  There are a variety of items that movers may decline to move for you.  A good rule of thumb is: if the item is explosive (such as ammunition), combustible (such as propane or alcohol), or hazardous (such as ammonia or house paint) you should either safely dispose of the item, or plan alternate methods for transporting it.

Here’s a list of some of the most common items not to move, as recommended by the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA):

  • Bleach
  • House paints
  • Open containers of liquid
  • Propane tanks or cans
  • Gas or oils
  • Butane
  • Ammunition
  • Open alcohol containers
  • Open, non-sealed food containers
  • Aerosols
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Welding Gas
  • Antifreeze
  • Disinfectant cleaners (especially those that contain bleach or ammonia)
  • Perishable foods
  • Items with excessive odor

Here’s to a safe move!
