One of the things that movers won’t move is food

Since they can’t keep the food cool during the move, food is one of the things that small movers Toronto won’t move. So you need to figure out what to do with the food from your fridge and freezer.

All hazardous items

Most of the moving companies have a list which they can give you, or which you can find on their website, of hazardous things they won’t move. And while most of these things are obvious, some are not. Make sure to check the list when you hire Midtown Toronto movers to help you with the move. Here are some of the things movers won’t move:

  • Paints and paint thinners
  • Gasoline
  • Oxygen bottles
  • Matches
  • Nail polish remover

Your movers also won’t move valuables

A lot of moving companies won’t move high-value items, things like cash, expensive jewelry, and art. Especially if you purchased full-value protection, since then they would have to pay the full value of the thing that gets lost or damaged. So before you call packing service Toronto to pack your things for the move, figure out how you are going to move your valuables. Another thing that you shouldn’t let movers handle, and that you should move are important documents and things of sentimental value, you should move those yourself so that there is no risk of them getting lost during the move.

Your movers won’t move some plants. It depends on the type of move you are having, if it is local or interstate, due to regulations moving plants interstate can be complicated. But if you are moving locally, you are best off moving the plants yourself. Just make sure that you protect them properly and that you know how to move plants because they are very sensitive and need to be handled carefully if you don’t want them to die. If you are going to let movers move the plants, then make sure that they have experience with moving plants. And let them know far ahead of the move so they can prepare to pack and move the plants properly.
