Packed house, ready for movers

  • Furniture: From sofas and chairs to beds and dressers, our movers will carefully wrap and protect your furniture to prevent any damage during transport.

What Items Our Movers Can't Move

While our movers are equipped to handle most household items, there are some items that we can't move for safety, legal, or ethical reasons. These items include:


Cleaning supplies

  • Hazardous materials: Our movers cannot move items that are hazardous or flammable, such as chemicals, gasoline, or ammunition.

  • Perishable items: Food, plants, and other perishable items cannot be moved by our movers due to the risk of spoilage or contamination.

  • Valuables: While our movers will do their best to protect your belongings, we cannot move items of significant monetary value, such as jewelry, gold, or silver.

  • Illegal items: Our movers cannot move items that are illegal, such as drugs, weapons, or stolen property.


In conclusion, we're dedicated to making your local or long-distance move seamless and stress-free. Our local movers are trained to handle all types of household items, from furniture to electronics to artwork and antiques. However, there are some items that we can't move for safety, legal, or ethical reasons. If you have any questions about what items our movers can and can't move, please don't hesitate to contact us.
