Pack containers in sturdy upright boxes and pad with newspaper.  For extra protection, line your trunk with plastic.

Place leaking or broken containers inside a waterproof container (a 5-gallon bucket works well).

Never smoke or eat while handling or transporting materials.

Leave pets at home!

Once your car has been loaded, drive directly to the site location for unloading.

Never mix liquids together!
