Here is a list of dangerous items you should be very cautious with:

All these items require special equipment to pack, you cannot just pack them in boxes and wait the movers to take them to your new home. We suggest asking your moving company to provide the needed equipment or just let them to handle with your items. It’s also illegal moving companies to transport those items if they are not properly packed. If you cannot pack them, then just give them away or call a recycling company.
Many moving companies refuse to accept any kind of perishable items. This includes Plants, food and animals. But if your move is local and you pack your items properly then your moving company may make an exception. You should contact them and make an agreement.

Do not pack hazardous materials
How to pack properly
Heat sensitive items
We often forget that heat sensitive items could be damaged during the move if they are not packed properly. Candles, CD’s, Computer Hardware, all should be packed using special materials and transported with a climate-controlled car or truck. Ask your moving company to provide you with the proper equipment to pack these items adequately.
Items with high value
High value doesn’t always means high price value, if items have some sort of personal/sentimental value, you should probably keep those items with you. But you also should make sure that your cash, jewelry or documents are with you and not in a moving boxes.
