It can be easy to forget about certain items when getting ready to move, but for safety reasons you should leave these things behind or move them yourself:
1) Cleaning Supplies
This includes items such as ammonia, bleach, window and household cleaners, etc. Anything that could leak out and spill on a shipment is prohibited.
2) Aerosol Cans
Items such as paint, hairspray, furniture polish, insecticides etc. can release if pressure is put on the can and cause damage to a shipment.
Flammables such as gas, diesel fuel, kerosene, and propane are not safe on a moving truck.
4) Guns & Ammunition
All guns and ammunition, gun powder, and items used for reloading should not go on a moving truck.
5) Refrigerated Food and Opened Food
Foods that need to remain cold or food that has been opened should not be sent on a moving truck. Also, liquid items such as syrup, jam, pickles and condiments etc. should not go as well.
6) Laundry Supplies
Liquid laundry detergent and bleach should be left behind or moved by the customer.
7) Items of Intangible Value
Personal items such as money, coin collections, jewelry, medication, etc. should always be moved by the customer and kept in your possession at all times.
