What Not to Pack When Moving? 

Perishable items: Skip packing food, drinks, and other perishable items. They can leak, break, or attract pests during the move.

Sentimental items, financial documents, deeds, cash, and prescription medications should not be packed. These important items should be kept with your other personal belongings during your move.

Hazardous items: Anything that is flammable or combustible cannot be backed, including aerosols, paints, oil, and propane tanks.

When moving, please make sure to talk to your professional mover and ask questions about what you are allowed to pack and what is not allowed so your move goes as smoothly as possible.
