Objects that cannot be taken with you when moving home

When moving house, you should not only know how to pack your belongings correctly, but you should also know which are the objects that you cannot take with you when moving house, either because they are not valuable or because they represent a danger.

Here at Hakotrans we will show you which are the products and objects that should not be moved. This way you can avoid placing them in the moving boxes and make a safe journey for your family, the movers, and your belongings.

Types of items and products that are not to be moved

The products and items you should avoid are those that are inexpensive and can simply be purchased in the new home. These may be difficult to transport or may even be a danger to everyone.

Other products you should avoid are those that could damage all the other items you are moving. Here are some of the products (including fuel, explosive, and inflammable products) that should not be packed and transported.

Butane gas cylinders

Butane gas cylinders are one of the main items that you should not take with you. They represent a danger during the move, as they can explode with a simple knock during transport. In addition, their heavy weight makes carrying them more complicated.

Perishable foods

In the case of these foods, it is advisable to consume them before the moving date. This is especially important if the journey to the destination is quite long.

On the other hand, if you want to transport products that require refrigeration, it is best to bring a cooler to keep them in, to prevent them from being damaged and producing unpleasant odors. However, if you want to bring something to eat in your new home, it is best to keep it separate from the rest of your belongings, identify it and make it easy to find.

Paints, varnishes, and aerosols

These products are highly flammable, so it is better not to take them with you also as not to take unnecessary risks. Also, if varnishes and paints have already been used, they can easily spill, making the lorry and the rest of your belongings dirty during the move.

Dirty clothes

Before you move, it is necessary to wash all your clothes. This is because if your clothes are stored for a long time in a box, the bad smell will not easily disappear when you wash them. Also, fresh stains, especially on white clothes, will take longer to be removed.

Cleaning products

As happens with paints and varnishes, cleaning products that have already been in use can spill during the move. This can cause damage or damage the remaining items in the truck.

For this reason, it is recommended not to take them with you. Also, as they are low-priced products, it is better to buy them when you arrive at your new home.


These represent a great danger when travelling and can cause accidents that we may regret for the rest of our lives. To prevent this from happening, when they are to be moved, it is important that they are well identified and packed separately from other objects.
