These are the guys that help you pack your belongings and load them into giant trucks. They transport your goods without as much as a scratch and unload them, storing them in the right places. Movers are rarely given any credit by house owners, but believe us when we say that these guys are life savers—and we mean it literally. Not many years ago in 2015, three professional movers saved the life of a woman who almost got killed in a rollover crash. The rescue was described in the news as a “miracle.”
It wasn’t exactly a miracle. Movers are trained to act quickly and think swiftly. They’ve been in far too many precarious situations to know exactly what can hurt people, and how badly—which is why they’ll tell you that there are certain things which have no place in a moving truck. Read on to find out what these things are.
Moving trucks are entirely off-limits for flammable and combustible materials for the sole reason that they’re moving trucks and not fire trucks. Unless you want your belongings to go up in a blaze of fire, you’ll be wise enough to keep potentially dangerous combustible items off the vehicle. These things can include gardening sprays, fertilizers, chemicals, detergents, cleaning supplies, paints, and much more. Consult with your professional moving company to find out more about what they have listed as blacklisted items. Also ensure that no leaking liquid item is on the truck. Remember that moving houses is not a movie directed by Michael Bay, and doesn’t need to be as explosive.
This should be a no-brainer. Guns, flame throwers, rocket launchers, missiles, nuclear arsenal (yes, we’re exaggerating on purpose)—or anything that you can use to complete a mission in GTA V, is totally off-limits. Not only is it illegal, moving companies have strict policies regarding firearms. You’re moving houses, not going to war.
Ask your carrier if they’re willing to transport plants and which kinds they’ll transport. Of course plants can’t explode like paint cans and they can’t go off on their own like rifles, but they’re often infested with pests. And these pests can be a pestilence, causing damage to your belongings and to the truck. Think about it: do you really want a centipede to ride on your expensive recliner all the way down to Dubai?
It’s never safe to transport your safe on a moving truck, no matter how safe the moving company. Accidents and mishaps can happen at any time and the company will not be liable to cover expenses. Of course, you can stash in your goods in a safe (not exceeding 600 pounds) and have them transported. But cash, jewelry, bonds, and things of value should be carried personally.
Imagine stashing your meds in a safe in a moving truck, and having a terrible spasm while you’re helping move a sofa. It’s an ugly place to be, and never wise. Medication and important documents are among the things that float at the top of the list of things moving trucks are off-limits for. Paperwork such as credit cards and licenses, identification, degrees and certificates, passports and deeds, bonds and bills—all need to be carried personally. Imagine losing your marriage certificate during the move—and good luck explaining that to your wife!
