What Not to Bring: More Moving Tips From Wayne and Family Moving, Cincinnati, Ohio

A professional moving company will pack and transport almost anything you own, but that almost can mean a lot more than you think. Many types of items require special care, and some cannot be transported in a moving truck regardless of how well they’re packaged. Wayne and Family Moving, Cincinnati’s most trusted family-owned moving company, offers these moving tips to remind you that when you move, some things should just be left behind.

Some items cannot be transported due to their hazardous nature, including:

  • Pesticides
  • Paint
  • Propane
  • Chemistry sets
  • Nail Polish and Remover
  • Loaded Weapons
  • Motor oil
  • Gasoline
  • Car Batteries
  • Charcoal
  • Anything aerosol (“if it sprays, it stays” is a good rule of thumb).

Transporting these items is actually illegal, and any reputable moving company won’t do it. To dispose of them, check to see if your local recycling center processes hazardous chemicals. Perishable items should also not be transported, including houseplants, unless you are taking them with you.

High-value items, especially those of personal or legal significance, should be treated with extra care. You may want to consider bringing the following with you, as accidents can happen to even the most reliable moving company:

  • Important papers, such as marriage licenses, passports, etc.
  • Family mementos.
  • Jewelry.
  • Tax and school records
  • Medicine

And also be careful not to accidentally pack flight tickets or car keys; you do not want to send those items off with the movers.

Wayne and Family Moving understand how stressful moving can be, which is why they do almost all the work for you. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, they are ready to make sure everything you treasure arrives safely. If you're moving out, visit their website for a free estimate and for more tips for a smooth and safe move. You can also call them at 513-542-5436.
