At Aussie Moving Inc, 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.
In order to avoid conflict and confusion on moving day, we recommend you speak with your local moving specialist to ensure you have time to make arrangements to move the items we’re not able to.
Our movers are unable to transport the following:
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.
One of the things that we can’t move long distance is plants. It is illegal to transport plants more than 150 miles without a special license. This is because pests, such as the emerald ash borer or other predators, can hitch a ride on your house plant and allow those pests to be introduced into a new area.
Do we really have to say this? Take your pet(s) in the car or the plane with you. Pets are just another of the things movers won’t move.
Fresh, refrigerated, and frozen foods are banned from our trucks to prevent rotting and spoiled, unpleasant odors. Plan 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 in your personal vehicle.
Valuables, such as cash, important documents, jewelry and stock certificates have no place in a moving van. While these items aren’t technically among the things movers won’t move, it just doesn’t make sense to risk losing them amid your other possessions during the move.
Power Equipment with Fuel.
The list of things movers won’t move also includes power equipment with fuel in the tank. This includes motorcycles, lawn mowers, weed eaters, and so forth. Before movers will move these items, you must drain the fuel or run the item(s) until the fuel reserve is completely empty. Be sure to do this at least 24 hours before loading.
Prescription drugs or medications.
In order to prevent any emergencies where you may need access to your medications, we do not move prescription drugs.
