The first thing that should never be packed is aerosol cleaners and even hairspray and professional removal services providers will not pack these or load them on their vans or trucks. They do this for a very good reason and that is that these aerosols are under high pressure and pose a hazard to anyone nearby if one was to be punctured and explode. During transport this is very likely as there is a lot of shaking and movement that goes on while a load is in transport. Aerosols can also explode if they are exposed to heat and this happens to things inside moving vehicles all the time especially in the summer. So even if you hire a company you should never pack aerosol chemicals. If you hire a company they still won’t any boxes of chemicals, you will have to load them in your own vehicle if you bring them to your new destination or a storage. Remember to place chemicals in a secure location in the vehicle so they do not turn over and spill, also make sure they do not have anything nearby that can puncture them.
