At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we’re dedicated to making your moving experience stress-free and successful. To ensure the safety of both our customers and movers, we must follow certain rules and regulations that restrict the transportation of certain items.
With the year’s busiest moving weekend less than a week away, we wanted to reach out and speak to those that are moving, about items that we cannot move.
In order to avoid conflict and confusion on moving day, we recommend you speak with your local franchise beforehand to ensure you have time to make arrangements to move the items we’re not able to.
Below are items that our movers are unable to transport.
Items We Can’t Move
Flammable, explosive, or corrosive items
Federal law prohibits the transportation of propane, paint, car batteries, antifreeze, household cleaners, weed killer, and ammunition. These items will not be moved under any circumstances.
Gasoline-filled engines or machines
Prior to move in day, make sure to empty any items that run on gasoline. Items such as lawn mowers, grills, tractors, and mopeds must be completely empty in order for our movers to transport them.
Plants and animals
In order to guarantee the safety and well-being of your plants and pets, we do not transport any living thing, including potted plants and fish.
Fresh, refrigerated, and frozen foods are banned from our trucks to prevent rotting and spoiled, unpleasant odours. We recommend planning out your meals the week before the move so you don’t have a fridge full of food on moving day. Or, plan to box and transport it in your personal vehicle.
Sensitive or sentimental belongings
We care about your things and take care of them as if they were our own. To ensure your prized possessions and important items are not misplaced during the process, we do not move items such as cash, jewellery, insurance papers, or birth certificates.
Moving tip – Create a moving essentials bag or box that stays with you. That way you’re not worrying about these items during your move and you can have them on hand in case you need them on moving day.
Prescription drugs or medications
In order to prevent any emergencies where you may need access to your medications, we do not move prescription drugs.
