Moving home can be an exciting yet daunting task, and there are many things to consider before you make the move. One of the most common questions asked when looking for a removal company is “What items will they not pack?” Knowing what items will and won’t be moved by a removal company is essential, so you can plan for any transport needs outside of their services.
Items Removal Companies Often Won’t Move
When it comes to what will and won’t be moved, every removal company will have their own approach. It’s important to ask the moving team exactly what items they will and won’t move, as each company may have a slightly different list of non-allowable items. Generally speaking though, some of the more common items removal companies often won’t pack include:
Hazardous materials, including corrosives, explosives, poisonous substances, chemicals, and flammable liquids pose a risk to both the removal team and your belongings. Even when the materials are properly labeled in the right containers, they can still present safety risks. Many removal companies will not move these types of items as a precautionary measure.
Live animals, such as cats and dogs, are generally not allowed on removal vehicles. This is because of the health and safety risks associated with transporting animals, as well as the animal welfare considerations. Removal vans are note made for the comfort of animals and can become very hot or cold, which can cause distress and problems for the animals. If you have pets that need to be moved, it’s best to make arrangements for them to travel with someone else or find an alternate means of transport.
Plants & Soil
The conditions in a removal van are not suited for your plants and soil, as the temperature can cause them to die or dry up. It’s important to move your plants and soil in a separate vehicle with enough air ventilation and light.
Removal companies also don’t move items that could spoil, such as food and drinks. This is because these items can quickly spoil if they are not stored properly, which can lead to bad odors and attract insects on top of not making it to the final destination in one piece.
High Value And Sentimental Items
Removal companies might also not transport high-value items, such as jewelry and antiques. This is because these items can be easily damaged due to their delicate nature, and lose their value. The same applies to sentimental items, such as photo albums or family heirlooms, which would be difficult if not impossible to replace if damaged during the move.
