Will you be intending to move in the near future? If so, you may be stressed, thinking of all the items you will have to pack. However not all you want to transport to your new residence can or ought to be moved by your professional movers in Colorado Springs. In other words, there are a few things that you need to move on your own. Here are four of the key types of things your moving company in Colorado Springs cannot move, together with some considerations and warnings and how we are able to help you.
 

1. DANGEROUS ITEMS

For safety reasons, movers have a list of unsafe items that they can't move. Chemicals interacting with other materials, like placing paint thinner and weed killer together on a moving truck can lead to a disastrous outcome.

A few of the dangerous items that cannot be moved comprise those, including lighter fluid, gas, propane tanks, matches, paints, paint thinners, fireworks, oxygen bottles, house cleaning solutions, pesticides, fertilizers, weed killers, spray cans, pool chemicals and also nail polish remover. Make sure to consult with your moving company in Colorado Springs for a complete list.

2. PLANTS

Yet another item you ought not put in a moving vehicle is plants. Actually, there are a few states with policies, concerning particular indoor plants that can or cannot cross a state line. While unwanted pests and mites are certainly not a problem in some regions, they may be thought to be extremely dangerous in other states.

Furthermore, a lot of moving companies don't want to haul plants since unwanted pests that reside in the soil may easily spill into the moving truck. Even if your moving company consents to move your plants, they might not live, particularly when you are moving a long distance given that plants need sun and water. In the event that you do not have room in your automobile for the plants, why don't you give them away to your neighbors and friends.

3. ESSENTIAL DOCUMENTS, PHOTOS AND FAMILY HEIRLOOMS

Even if your moving company claims they will carry your precious valuables on their moving van, it is smart to keep your important documents and photos with you. The reason being these are typically things that can't be easily replaced.

4. PERISHABLE FOODS

Professional movers in Colorado Springs typically pack most canned food for you, however you need to consider if this is a good idea. Of course, perishable food items should not be carried on a moving van. It's a smart idea to donate your perishables as well as food items in glass jars as opposed to transporting them with you.

You need to make room in your automobile for more valuable items, and you do not want to have to worry about mishaps from leaks, cracks or mold before getting to your new home. But boxed and/or canned foods, like herbs and dried fruits can be moved. For any questions regarding which food items that can or can't be moved, consult your moving agent.
