5. Your movers refuse to transport your item
You’ve boxed everything up, and you’re ready for the move. Unfortunately, your movers are not allowed to transport your belongings. Why? Because your boxed-up things happen to be on their list of “non-allowables.” Uh oh. This means you’ll end up having to find another way to transport your things, and/or you’ll need to dispose of them responsibly before moving day.
How to avoid: While most non-allowables are fairly obvious (think: hazardous chemicals), others may not be (think: nail polish and scuba tanks). Other non-allowables include fertilizer, loaded guns, paint, paint thinner, gasoline, propane tanks, and perishable food items – among other things. Be sure to check with your moving company and ask for their full list of non-allowables before packing your belongings.
