Items Your Houston Movers Cannot Legally Transport

Find out what you can and cannot legally transport when you move.

As you prepare for your Houston residential move or Houston commercial move, there are some things you should be prepared to move yourself or leave behind. Some things cannot legally transport.

Moving companies are not legally permitted to transport any hazardous materials!

This includes items that are flammable, corrosive or combustible. What does this mean for you? If you have a gas barbecue grill you will need to disconnect the tank and take it with you or the grill stays where it is. Your lawnmower and other power lawn tools must be emptied of fuel or they do not go on the truck.

You should also be sure to disconnect gas hookups for grills, dryers, water heaters and anything else that you plan to have your movers take; moving companies cannot handle gas connections. Your mover cannot legally transport such items in certain conditions.

Other non-allowable items include:

  • Sterno
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Household Batteries
  • Matches
  • Aerosols
  • Chemistry Sets
