Knowing what your movers can’t move
As you gear up for your move it’s very important to keep note of items that our movers won’t be able to transport. Our movers aren’t able to move items like gasoline engines or machines, plants or animals, prescription drugs and medication, perishable food, and flammable items. Customers should plan to load and transport these items on their own.
