When you're packing up your belongings for moving day, sometimes it's best to leave it to the professionals - or leave it behind entirely. These moving/packing tips will help you discern what not to pack.
Items requiring professional disassembly and/or crating (such as slate pool tables, chandeliers, or large glass table tops) are best left to the professionals.
Do not pack heat-sensitive items like candles, CDs, computer peripherals, etc. If you must take these items to your new home, bring them with you in your climate-controlled car or truck.
Don't pack any irreplaceable items. Whether these items have significant monetary value, are financial/personal in nature, or have sentimental value, you'll probably want to keep these items on your person or have them shipped via a trackable shipping service:
Don't put yourself and your family in danger. Leave hazardous items behind when you move. Ask your neighbors if they can use these items; otherwise, dispose of them properly with assistance from your recycling company or the EPA. Plan to purchase new items once you arrive at your new home.
