Indeed you have one of these. If so, it’s essential to ensure you’re handling it correctly—especially if you have a fragile classic car. Talk with your moving company if you have a vehicle that can't be driven. Any reputable moving company will have a trailer that you can use.


If you have a motorcycle, you know how fragile it is and how easily it can tip over. Because of this, consider the following precautions.

  • Tie Down Straps
  • Large Storage Crate


Ensure your grill is adequately cleaned before packing it in the truck. And, if it's a gas grill, dispose of the propane tank before moving it. Due to the risk of explosion, propane tanks are not allowed in moving trucks.

Paints and Flammable Liquids

Now is a great time to get rid of those old paints and flammable liquids that you've been holding on to for too long. If you check with your local government, you’ll be guided to a place where you can safely dispose of these items.

Lawncare and Landscaping Items

Make sure you've emptied all gasoline of your lawncare equipment before moving it. For the same reason as the propane tank, you won't be allowed to put lawn equipment in the moving truck.


If you have a toolbox, organize all of your tools in this container. Keep lock or tighten the toolbox doors securely so they don't swing open. And, if your toolbox has wheels, ensure that they're put in a closed position to keep the box from sliding around in the truck.
