Note: Refrigerators and freezers should be emptied and kept open for at least 24 hours prior to loading in order to allow them to dry out completely and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
Items of Importance/Sentimental Value – This third category of “non-allowable” items does not create the physical threat or hold the potential for spoilage that the above categories do. It is simply advisable to keep those items that cannot be replaced under your own guard and in your possession in order to guarantee beyond a doubt that nothing will happen to them.
