4 Items You Shouldn’t Move on Your Own

Local Moving, Long Distance Moving, Packing Boxes, Tips for Moving

Taking care of your move without professional help is a great way to cut down on the costs of moving, as long as you have a plan and help from family or friends. However, some items can be seriously damaged by inadequate moving conditions, and it’s best to leave these items to a professional team. Here are five examples of items you shouldn’t attempt to move on your own.


Antique items are often made of delicate materials that don’t hold up to regular moving conditions. Additionally, they aren’t as easily replaceable as other decor. D-Town Movers values your antiques as much as you do, which is why we take a detailed inventory of them before anything else in your home. To prepare them for the move, we put your vintage or antique decorations in specialized wooden crates or padded boxes based on their age, materials, and fragility.

Exercise Equipment

Exercise equipment is usually big, bulky, heavy, and very dangerous to move on your own. Luckily, D-Town Movers offers professional exercise equipment moving services. We have experience with a wide range of different types and brands of equipment. We can move items like ellipticals, home gyms, steppers, exercise bikes, treadmills, squat racks, and weight benches. Our special care and attention to detail ensures your equipment will arrive in your new space exactly as it was before. Keep yourself and your exercise equipment safe by hiring D-Town Movers to professionally relocate it.

Fine Art

Whether you’re an artist or a collector, your art pieces deserve to be handled with care. Delicate and valuable fine art needs to be handled gently and moved in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment with adequate shock-absorbing protection. At D-Town Movers, we take fine art as seriously as you do. We take the time to examine your collection and make a specialized moving plan that won’t damage your valuable pieces.

Computers and Electronics

Computers and other electronics are big investments that need to be treated with care. If they aren’t handled properly during the moving process, your devices could sustain expensive damage. Temperature, light exposure, and humidity are all factors that need to be considered when moving electronics, which is why we offer full-service packing of your devices. Our equipment and technique reduces the risk of damage to your electronics on moving day. D-Town Movers has helped countless commercial and residential clients move their devices safely. We take care of disassembly, reassembly, packing, transportation, and debris removal to make sure your electronics aren’t at risk of any damage.
