Some items shouldn't go in your moving truck, either because they are hazardous, or because they are irreplaceable. In the first category are many paints and cleaners. Drain oil and gasoline from your lawnmower before moving, and ask a professional seal any propane containers. In the second category are any personal, invaluable items. Some of these may be practical -- birth certificates, Social Security cards, tax records -- but also be sure to keep priceless items such as photo albums close at hand. You'll also want to supervise the moving of valuable items such as jewelry, silver, and coin or stamp collections.
Before your things are packed and loaded, please take some time to look over the items that we cannot put on a truck or in a container. Hazardous and perishable materials are not allowed, and we recommend that you keep sentimental or personally important items with you.
