What Not To Pack

The cartons are packed, the movers have arrived and you are ready to go. But not everything has to go, in fact, not everything is even safe to travel with you on your move. Here is a list of items recommended by Bekins Van Lines that cannot be moved with you during your relocation.

  • Aerosol cans regardless of content
  • Heating agents such as Sterno

    • Hi, Corinne! Great question. In general, we recommend against any flammable liquids being packed on the truck, including alcohol.
