Moving Hazardous Chemicals?

Materials considered to be hazardous in nature should never be packed or transported as they can potentially destroy other belongings in your shipment or threaten the safety of the staff that is handling and transporting your household goods. The list of items considered to be hazardous in nature includes, but is not limited to anything of a flammable or explosive nature (oil-based paint, varnish, thinners, fertilizers, gasoline, kerosene, heating oil, aerosol cans, nail polish and remover, ammunition, and explosives). Products of a highly corrosive nature or items that pose a health threat if spilled or breathed should never be packed or transported (i.e. pool or spa chemicals, insecticides, pesticides). Further, vessels such as propane tanks and gasoline cans should be excluded from your shipment. All of the aforementioned items and anything else of a hazardous nature should be properly disposed of well in advance of your moving date.
