Don’t Put These Things in Your Moving Bins, Even If You’re Just Moving Across Toronto!

There are some things that you can pack away early, and some things that you can easily pack up a day or two before your move. Your dishes, winter clothing, or books will be okay for a few days or even a couple of weeks in the boxes. But there are some essential items that you definitely don’t want to pack away already in your moving boxes, even if you’re just moving a short distance within Toronto.

Prescription Medications

Even if you follow all of the tips for keeping your moving bins in Toronto organized, you don’t want to be searching through boxes for important medications. Put these in your overnight bag. It’s also a good way to remind yourself to move any prescriptions or medical records to your new pharmacy or doctor’s office.

Pet Food

If you have a giant bag of pet food, it’s okay to pack that. However, you’ll want to make sure you have a small container of food ready in hand so that your furry friend can have something to eat! If your move will mean that your belongings might be stuck in boxes for a couple days, make sure you’ve packed enough food with that in mind, and maybe a couple of toys to keep them occupied.

Important Documents

If you’re driving, you’ll probably already remember to keep your driver’s license on hand, but make sure to keep all of your important documents in your overnight bag. Passports, any stocks or bonds, insurance information, or any other records should be kept with you so that they don’t get misplaced in the shuffle. Save yourself some stress by making sure that you know exactly where all of these important documents are!

Perishable Food Items

You don’t want to open one of your moving bins to find a bunch of spoiled food. Check out our blog for tips to packing up your kitchen to make sure that any food that you do bring, travels safely, and how to donate any of the food that can’t travel with you. Don’t give yourself extra cleanup work during the process.

Flammable Items

When you’re packing up your garage, make sure that you aren’t packing things into your Toronto moving bins that aren’t permitted in moving trucks. Moving flammable items like propane or aerosol can be dangerous, so make sure you follow any local regulations to properly dispose of these items before you fill your moving bins.
