Organising a house removal or an office removal can be tricky and downright stressful.

Thankfully, the team here at Jacksons Removals are on hand to clear some things up as we’ve put together a list of some of the stuff a removal company may not move…


It may surprise you how many times a removal company is asked to take along the family pet with them in the back or front of the van however it simple isn’t possible. Not only is it dangerous for the animal in question, removal companies simply do not transport anything living. You must make other arrangements for you four legged friend.

Hazardous Materials

Although they may not appear hazardous, items like paint, batteries and fire extinguishers can pose a great deal of risk to movers. The general rule is that an item which cannot be disposed of in regular waste is likely to be refused removal from your removal company.


Anything that is important or has a great deal of value is almost always refused a removal because the removal company simply cannot be left responsible for such important items. This includes things like cash, birth certificates, important legal documents and expensive jewellery. Whilst not all removers stick to this idea, it is often better to keep valuables on person to ensure they make the move safely.

Now you know what type of items you may or may not get moved, it’s time to start planning your own removal!
