There are several items that your Good Movers can not transport. We’ve put together a list below. There may be some items NOT listed that we can not take. As a general rule, we can not transport anything dangerous, perishable, or irreplaceable. We can not transport these items for safety, legal, or liability reasons.
There are many items that you may not think are hazardous but actually are. Dozens of Americans lose all their possessions every year when something in their shipment starts a fire. The thing that starts the fire is usually on the list below. These items are either flammable, corrosive, or explosive:
Nail Polish Remover
Oil (All types of automotive or lamp)
If you are moving long-distance, it is best to get rid of these items beforehand. For local moves, DO NOT seal these items in a box. Leave the box top open for safe transport.
Lawnmowers, weed eaters, snowblowers, chain saws, and other power tools must empty of fuel and oil before transport.
Perishable items can cause problems during transport. They may leak, produce odors, attract rodents, or put your movers or possessions at risk. The list of those items is below:
Food (that may spoil during transport)
Opened Food Products
Refrigerators and freezers must be empty, defrosted, and the doors kept open for 24 hours before transport. This will prevent leaks from ruining the rest of your shipment and the growth of mold.
Non perishable open food products may be transported only if they are in tightly sealed, sturdy containers. If there is a chance that the item may spill, spoil, or stink we will not take it. As a good rule of thumb, if you would not ship it as is through the mail (USPS, FedEx, etc.), we will not ship it on our trucks.
Personal or Sentimental Items
Your movers will not take items that are irreplaceable or sentimental to you. Our insurance WILL NOT cover any of the items on the list below. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure these items are out of the house beforehand. You must disclose any items that have a value of over $100 per pound before loading your shipment.
Certificates of Deposits
Collections (Coins, Stamps, Sports Cards, Etc.)
Credit or Debit Cards
Keys (Furniture, Safe, Home)
Stocks or Bonds
