What items can you NOT move? Are you planning a move and wondering about items that are prohibited from being transported by moving companies? It’s essential to be aware of certain items that movers are unable to transport for safety, legal, or logistical reasons. In this article, we’ll discuss the items that Movers Legion cannot move, ensuring a smooth and compliant relocation process for all involved parties.

What items can you NOT move?

1. Hazardous Materials:

Explanation: Hazardous materials pose a significant risk during transportation due to their potential to cause harm to individuals, property, and the environment. Examples of hazardous materials include flammable liquids, corrosive substances, explosives, and toxic chemicals.

2. Perishable Items:

Explanation: Perishable items, such as fresh food, plants, and live animals, are unsuitable for long-distance transportation and may spoil or perish during transit. Movers Legion cannot transport perishable items due to the risk of contamination, spoilage, and legal restrictions.

3. Valuables and Personal Documents:

Explanation: While Movers Legion prioritizes the safe and secure transportation of your belongings, we recommend that you personally transport valuables, important documents, and sentimental items. Examples include jewelry, cash, passports, medical records, and legal documents.

4. Firearms and Ammunition:

Explanation: Firearms and ammunition are subject to strict regulations and legal requirements, making them unsuitable for transportation by moving companies. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure compliance with firearm laws and regulations and to make alternative arrangements for their transportation.

5. Restricted or Prohibited Items:

Explanation: Certain items may be subject to restrictions or prohibitions based on local, state, or federal laws and regulations. Examples include controlled substances, illegal drugs, and items that infringe on intellectual property rights.
