Things You Should Avoid Sending with the Movers

What not to pack with our Vancouver Movers

Before you start packing, you need to make sure you have made arrangements with our Vancouver Movers. Moving is not as simple as it may initially seem to be, and packing stuff up can take a lot of time. The first thing you should do is to take some time and categorize all the items you own. Decide on what you need to pack, what you need to carry with you, and what you can to donate or toss.

Here are some tips you can use to cut down on the hassles associated with moving and also ensure the safety of the items you are transporting.

Avoid Packing Harmful Materials

There are a number of household items which can be dangerous when you are moving. Chemical liquids such as oil, kerosene, strong household cleaners, etc. may leak and damage other goods during transportation. Avoid carrying items which could cause a serious accident.

Carry All You Important Documents with You

Many people make the mistake of packing and sending all their important documents such as medical history, driving license, bank documents, etc. If you are moving to a place which is far away, never choose to send such items along with the rest of your belongings. In case any of these documents get lost, you may end up facing a lot of difficulty. Plus, you may require many of these documents during the move.

Avoid Packing Expensive and Memorable Items

There will be some items you own which are special to you. Even if you hire the best possible moving company, there is always a risk of some items getting damaged during transportation. Therefore, it is recommended that items which are of special importance to you, or really expensive, be carried with you, and not given to the moving agency. Even though it might require a bit more effort to carry such stuff with you, it could be worth it in the end.

Living Things Should Not Be Packed

When you are moving to a new place, don’t make the mistake of sending living things such as plants or pets with the movers. In fact, many moving agencies refuse to take pets with them, unless the distance to be covered is short. Instead of putting your beloved pets in a confusing situation, choose to take them with you when moving. If you are not able to take it with you for some reason, look to make alternate arrangements such as dropping your pet off with a friend for a short while.

Hiring a good moving agency is your best bet, when it comes to making sure your belongings are safe. If you are moving to or from Vancouver, contact Best Choice moving today!
