Shipping: Information on Prohibited Items
International Removals Company, Abels, provide some important information about prohibited items that people should consider carefully when packing for their overseas move.

If you are in any doubt, you can ask your Customer Services Manager for the particulars about the customs and import regulations for the country you are moving to.
This list includes any goods that can put health or property at risk, as well as items which breach the regulations of the local area or of customs of the destination country.
