prohibited items

When you’re in the process of packing up all of your personal possessions for your next move, it’s important to know that some items cannot be included. Moving companies simply won’t transport a number of items in order to protect themselves and the rest of your possessions from harm during the trip to your new home. Before your professional movers arrive, make sure you haven’t packed up anything they won’t allow. Here’s what All American Moving and Storage can't move:

Hazardous Materials

If it looks or smells dangerous, you can bet we won’t be piling it into the back of one of our trucks. Items that are considered hazardous include:

Perishable Items

Transporting food goods can attract all sorts of critters and problems along the way, and moving these critters can put your food items – and your movers – at great risk. That’s why we won’t move items like:

    Food that hasn’t been properly preserved

    Frozen foods

    Open containers of foodstuffs

    Plants

    Produce

    Refrigerated food

Items of Personal or Sentimental Value

There are some items that need to be carried along with you when you move. If you have items of real personal or sentimental value, don’t risk anything happening to them by packing them along with the items in the back of our trucks. The items you shouldn’t put pack and put on the moving truck include:

    Home videos

    Insurance policies

    Jewelry

    Keys (to anything)

    Laptops

    Medical/dental records

    Medicine

    School records

    Work files
