Hazardous materials are prohibited items and cannot be moved on any move. This is for the safety and protection of the driver, the driver’s helpers, your belongings and the belongings of others that might be on the moving van.

Perishable items cannot be moved on long distance moves but can usually be moved when the move is a local move or delivery is to occur within 24 hours.

Personal items and items of sentimental value are not prohibited but it is strongly recommended that they not be loaded on the moving van.
