July 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #73: What Not to Pack

Tip of the Week

Some things shouldn't go in your moving truck, either because they are hazardous, or because they are irreplaceable.

In the first category are many paints and cleaners. Drain oil and gasoline from your lawnmower before moving, and have a professional seal any propane containers.

In the second category are any personal, irreplaceable items. Some of these may be practical -- birth certificates, Social Security cards, tax records -- but also be sure to keep sentimental items such as photo albums close at hand. You'll also want to supervise the moving of valuable items such as jewelry, silver, and coin or stamp collections.
