Moving 101: Hazardous and Perishable Materials

 

One of the last to be considered elements of a household relocation is the disposal of prohibited items. These include aerosol cans; batteries; ammunition and loaded firearms; cleaning solvents; fertilizers and weed killers; fireworks; fuels (including gas, propane and sterno) and oils; paints, paint thinners and varnishes; pesticides and poisons, and, pool chemicals.

 

These items are often overlooked during the relocation planning process as they are stored away in the garage or inside a cabinet – out of sight, out of mind! However, before your household items are packed and loaded onto the moving truck or container, it is important to take time to catalog and properly dispose of any prohibited items. Your relocation firm will be able to provide you with a comprehensive list of hazardous items that are not allowed. And, if you are unsure of how to dispose of items that are not allowed in your shipment, the moving experts at King Companies recommend earth911.com, which can help you find appropriate recycling centers in your area.

 

In addition to the aforementioned prohibited items, a reputable mover will also discourage the relocation of frozen and refrigerated foods, or foods in which adequate preservation cannot be arranged in advance, as well as plants and produce.

 

Finally, don’t forget to keep sentimental or personally important items with you during your relocation. These can include address books, airline tickets, cash, checkbooks, computer files and backups, family photographs or albums, financial documents, insurance policies and property titles/documentation, jewelry, keys, medical and dental records, prescription medications and school records.
