52 Items Movers Won’t Move In Their Moving Trucks (Non-Allowable)

By Timothy P. Callahan Categories: Blog, Moving Tips

If you are hiring a moving company to move you, they will likely give you a sheet of “non-allowables” with all the items movers cannot pack or move.

A good rule of thumb when wondering if an item can be moved or not is: if it can’t be thrown away in the normal trash or recycling, movers likely won’t move it.

Here is a list of 52 items that movers cannot or may not want to move:

1. Paint
2. Motor Oil
3. Anti-Freeze
4. Solvents
5. Pool Chemicals
6. Pesticides & weed killer
7. Cleaning Supplies
8. Bleach
9. Guns & Ammunition
10. Ammonia
11. Acids
12. Fire Extinguisher
13. Nail polish remover
14. Car batteries
15. Poisons
16. Lamp oil
17. Chemistry sets
18. Matches
19. Darkroom chemicals
20. Sterno
21. Fertilizer
22. Nail polish
23. Gasoline
24. Propane Tanks
25. Paint Thinner
26. Aerosoles
27. Lighter Fluid
28. Charcoal
29. Kerosene
30. Fireworks
31. SCUBA Tanks
32. Muriatic Acid
33. Nitric Acid

42. Keys
43. Personal Documents (birth certs, pink slips, anything with your social security #)
44. Medicine
45. Laptops
46. Tablets
47. Cell Phones
48. Medical Records

Big T did great work with a commercial move. They were professional, on time, and fast. They took care of everything for me – packing up, loading, transport, unloading into a storage unit. Commercial moves can be such a headache but they made it pretty dang easy.

I called about 20 other moving companies and this one had rates that just couldn’t be beat. That was so exciting. It’s a family owned company that also holds Christian values, which was a nice added bonus. Not only did the lady’s I spoke with on the phone have excellent customer service, the…

Movers came by and wrapped furniture. They disassembled my bed quickly and put it together at the new place. I had no issues with furniture damage either. Took roughly 3 hours I think for a one bedroom apartment move.

Would recommend.

This is at least the third time I’ve used this company. They are great.

Here are my general issues: 1. Every time they move me they forget at least one thing. Last time they forgot to place a door back on its hinges. Just make sure you do a detailed walk through. 2. Prices seem to increase with every move. Last time they were $75/hour. This time they quoted me $125/hour. I …

They were conscientious.

The most positive experience was when my daughter moved to Athens and she needed her stuff taken from her apartment in Athens to the new duplex.

5-star. I’ve asked a move to 1-hr away in Atlanta area. Great service, pre-move communication went well, no unclarity for the arrival time, which we’ve had huge troubles with our past couple of (inter-state) moves. On the day we got 30 mins notice before arrival, and they were punctual. Comm…
