Are you packing for a move to a new home? It’s easy to want to throw everything in boxes and get it over with. But be careful about what you’re packing. There are some dangerous items you want to be sure to leave out. Here are four of them.
To avoid the potential for fire, don’t put anything flammable in boxes that are going on a moving truck. Things like gasoline, motor oil, lighter fluid, paint, and ammunition are no-no’s when packing.
You don’t want a spill in a box to damage your other belongings and cause a hazard. Keep acid, fertilizer, pesticide, cleaning solvents, and car batteries out of your boxes that your movers are putting on the moving van.
It seems normal to pack things like hairspray and nail polish remover, but it’s best to leave chemicals and materials that are under pressure out when packing. These types of items also include aerosol cleaners, ammonia, bleach, pool chemicals, and propane tanks.
While not inherently dangerous, it’s a good idea to leave behind, throw away, or give away any perishable items. Not only could they rot, spill, or crush, causing damage, but they could attract pests.
This is a short list of some dangerous or hazardous items most moving companies require you to leave out or move on your own.

Moving is never easy, but it’s even harder when you can’t find your things when you get to your new home. Are there any tips and tricks for staying organized and knowing where everything is? You bet! Take a look at these four ways to avoid losing your things during a move.
Packing willy-nilly is bound to lead to chaos and disorganization. When you pack one room at a time, it’s easier to stay organized and keep each room’s items together.
Labeling your boxes is critical to finding everything when you get to your destination. Put as much detail on each box as possible, including which room it goes in. That way, your movers will know where to put it in your new home.
Those things you use every day should go in a separate bag or box. The box of personal items can go in your car, or it can go on the truck last and come off first. You’ll know where those important items are right away at your new home.
Most reliable moving companies provide packing services as part of a residential move package. They will pack your belongings securely, so you don’t need to worry about breakage. They’ll also create a complete inventory, so you know where everything is, and you can unpack easily.
To make your move go smoothly, with easy access to all of your belongings when you get to your new home, contact the team of professionals at Nilson Van and Storage for a free move estimate.
Office moves can take a toll, but there are ways to handle it with a minimum impact on your business. Here’s how to move your business and reopen your office without disrupting your workflow.
Nothing throws a wrench in a workday like the unexpected. Keeping the lines of communication open with your employees can help make your office move go smoothly. Creating and sharing a schedule and timetable, and updating them if things change, is a great way to keep everyone in the loop.
What tools and equipment does your business need most? Make sure they get top priority with move and set up. You want those things available as long as possible at your old location and available as soon as possible at your new one. This is a critical step in preventing disruptions to workflow.
2020 has been a challenging year for businesses across the country but moving to a new location presents even more challenges. Keeping everyone safe is a priority. Doing it without impacting the workflow of your business is important and possible. One way to do it is to minimize the number of people present during the actual move. Choosing a weekend to have your professional moving company pack, load, move, and unload is critical. Make sure you follow local, state, and federal mandates regarding masks, distancing, and other protocols to keep your employees and your movers safe.
With extensive experience in office relocations and strict safety protocols during the COVIC pandemic, we can get your team moved and back to work quickly and safely. Contact the team at Nilson Van and Storage to reopen your business without impacting workflow.
