What Not To Pack For a Long Distance Move

Moving from one home to another will always require transporting essential items before anything else. If you’re moving a short distance, however, it becomes much easier to move everything you want. In this situation, essentials and non-essentials are likely to be moved simultaneously. 

Unfortunately, the challenges that come with a long distance move changes things up, and non-essential items are harder to bring along. In many cases, moving companies will be unable to move certain items due to liability, safety, etc. To learn about what you should not be packing for a long distance move, check out the information we here at Augusta Movers have come up with below.
