What NOT to pack on moving day?
Vancouver Movers knows that moving day can be a stressful. Most of us spend many many days before moving day sorting and packing our household items into moving boxes. But which of our household items that should not be packed? Here is a list of items you should AVOID packing for moving day.
- Dangerous & Perishable items -such as: Paints & Paint Thinners, Fertilizers, Propane Cylinders, Automotive Repair & Maintenance Chemicals & Fireworks
- Perishable Items including live plants and food. If you are moving locally, most Vancouver Moving Companies will allow properly packed plants and food items. Be sure to ask your local moving company if this is something they allow.
- Special Items including fitness equipment, old playground sets and washing machines & dryers
- Valuable Items such as passports, birth certificates, medical records and jewelry. Instead of packing these items into a moving box and placing them on a moving truck, it is better to keep these items within reach and take them in the car with you on moving day.
In addition to what NOT to pack on moving day here is list of helpful reminders prior to moving day:
- Drain oil from garden tools and other machinery
- Disconnect any battery operated equipment from it’s battery
- Disconnect Propane Tanks and return to collection centers
Armed with these 2 lists, you will now be able to make the right choices as to what to pack and what not to pack on moving day. We have also included a video outlining these steps in more detail. Thanks for choosing Vancouver Movers as your local and long distance moving company!
