THE NO-MOVE LIST CONTAINS SOME SURPRISING ITEMS.
If you’ve ever relocated, you are aware of the impact professional Packers and movers Dubai can have on whether your move goes smoothly or becomes incredibly stressful. You can have peace of mind knowing that your belongings are in the hands of experts by choosing to hire a reputable moving company for everything from packing to careful transportation and delivery. But did you know that some things can’t be moved by movers? Continue reading to learn more about what movers cannot move.
The usual suspects are the things that refuse to move.
You have a great chance to organize any clutter and get rid of things you don’t need when you move. Make sure the following things go on the “donate, dispose of, or give away” list when organizing your belongings before a move:
Hazardous materials prevent movers from moving
Although it might seem like a pretty simple restriction, it’s actually more complicated than it seems! Many everyday household items are also regarded as hazardous materials and are prohibited from being transported by movers, in addition to obviously dangerous items like fireworks, other explosives, ammunition, and weapons.
It is dangerous to transport anything flammable, including common items like batteries, nail polish, and nail polish remover, as well as corrosives, gasoline, kerosene, oil, lighter fluid, propane tanks, heavy-duty cleaning fluids, paint, varnish, and paint thinner. Aerosol cans, fire extinguishers, and oxygen tanks are examples of pressurized containers that are prohibited from being moved due to the possibility of an explosion.
Take into account the following advice when packing to help ensure that all of your boxes make it onto the moving truck safely: It is best to donate or properly dispose of items that are flammable or under pressure.
Distinguish perishable items
Especially if you’re moving far away, perishable food items like meats, produce, dairy products, opened containers, and frozen food cannot be transported in a moving truck safely. Perishable food items will spoil quickly in moving trucks without refrigeration, resulting in extremely unpleasant odors. In the truck, spoiled food can also harm other items due to condensation, mold, and fungus. Before moving, it is best to use up or donate any perishable items. A fun and simple way to use up perishables is to host a dinner party before moving day!
Plants dislike traveling over long distances.
Live plants can’t make it through a long-distance move unharmed, just like perishable food items. It is best to transport your plants if you don’t want to leave them behind. Moving outside of Canada, though, can make crossing the border with live plants difficult. It is common for plants to need special paperwork and to experience quarantine periods, which can add extra time, cost, and hassle.
IRREPLACEABLE ITEMS ATTACHED TO SPECIAL MEMORIES
Photos and Documents
The best care is given to your belongings by professional Home Movers Dubai, but it’s always a good idea to transport irreplaceable items yourself. The rest of your household goods cannot be shipped with items like financial documents, family photos, wills, passports, medical records, and other irreplaceable paperwork. Instead, carry these documents with you wherever you go in a folder or briefcase.
Money and Jewelry
Despite the fact that professional movers are insured, many moving companies won’t transport certain valuables because doing so significantly increases liability. During a move, you should always keep your jewelry, cash, stocks, bonds, and possessions like coin and stamp collections with you. It’s simple to make sure your valuables arrive at your new house safely by using a small safe or locked box.
Drugs and medical equipment
The category of medications is interesting because some items that are available over the counter in one nation may require a prescription or even be forbidden in another. For this reason, we firmly advise that you confirm in advance whether you have special medication and carry a supply with you at all times. Additionally, especially during lengthy moves, it is best to keep equipment like blood pressure monitors, etc. out of the truck.
