When you hire a professional moving company they should provide you with a “Non- allowable items list”.
Non-allowable item is the term used in the industry referring to the items that professional moving companies will not transport.
It is important to know what these items are in case you are doing the packing. Knowing what you can’t bring will also save you valuable time!
Do not hesitate to contact your mover for more information about any item you are uncertain about.
