Non-Transportable Items

Moving Checklist for Non-Transportable Items 

When packing up for a move, it’s important to remember that some restricted items are prohibited on a moving truck. The moving company cannot transport these non-transportable items to your new home. These items include explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosive, radioactive, and other hazardous materials. Here is our non-transportable items list below. Check out northAmerican Van Lines’s list of other items not recommended for transport on a moving van.
