Items you shouldn’t move by yourself

Do you have to relocate some special items for your new home or to a storage unit? Those items are usually items you shouldn’t move by yourself because they are large, heavy, and too valuable to take a risk.

What items are too hard to move? Moving injuries are often, unfortunately, and some items are just impossible to handle by yourself.

  • Fish tanks are one of the items you shouldn’t move by yourself because fishes cannot live without water and they need a lot of care when moving.
  • If you have exotic pets, you need a moving company that specialized in moving animals and pack and move terrarium (or a fish tank) with special attention.
  • Expensive art pieces should not be moved anyhow. They need special moving boxes and some of the art is sensitive to temperature changes.
  • For moving hot tubs, you need strong and experienced people, equipment, and a big moving vehicle. This is why you should not move it by yourself.
  • As well as pianos, pool tables are also difficult to move. Not only you can damage your pool table, but also, you can damage floors and walls when moving around the house. The billiard table should definitely be transported by professionals that are experienced.
  • Exercise (gym) equipment is not easy to move because you can easily get hurt.
  • Big-screen TV has sensitive parts and they are too big to move.
  • Moving plants require a lot of attention because they need light and water during moving. Having a special moving vehicle is a must, especially for a long-distance relocation, to keep your plants alive.
  • Wine bottles and other liquor should be moved in special boxes, especially if you have an expensive wine collection or you are moving a bar.
