Prohibited Items

Time to start packing for your short-distance or long-distance move.

Before you start wrapping and boxing your belongings, make sure you understand what items are allowed or prohibited.

WolfePack Transport / WolfePack Logistics has experts in the moving industry to ensure a professional moving experience. We provide you with a list of items that are Prohibited, so when WolfePack Packing Service and WolfePack Movers arrive at your home or business there is not going to be an issue. At WolfePack we always believe it is better to put our cards on the table, so our clients never feel uninformed.

Many of these prohibited items are likely to be found in your garage or with your household cleaning supplies. Other items could be around your house in bathrooms and storage rooms. Items such as gasoline and ammunition may seem obvious, but others are not so apparent, such as nail polish remover and indoor plants.

It is always surprising to find out that moving starts long before your belonging gets carefully stored in boxes for the big move. This is why WolfePack has put a comprehensive checklist for you our client to get ready for the big day.

Moving Chemicals

WolfePack is prohibited by DOT regulations from transporting hazardous items, including explosives, flammable gases, and toxic substances, or other items on WolfePack’s Prohibited Items List. Keep in mind that these hazardous items must be disposed of properly to comply with federal, state and local laws and to protect the environment. Contact your city or county for where to dispose of these items:


Moving Guns & Ammunition

WolfePack as a general rule is that it is always best to transport firearms and ammunition with you personally and not have it loaded on the truck. WolfePack understands that option is not available. If you need to have firearms transported please refer to the Firearms and Ammunition Transportation Guide and contact your Personal WolfePack Moving Coordinator. Make sure you are aware of the laws of the state you are transporting firearms from and too.

Moving Perishable Items

As a rule of thumb, WolfePack is not able to transport perishable items. Some very limited exceptions may be made if your move is less than 100 miles and items will be delivered within 12 hours of loading with no in-transit servicing. These exceptions are made at our sole discretion and require the permitted perishable items to be properly packed.

Moving Tip:

Empty your refrigerators and freezers and keep appliance doors open for at least 72 hours in advance of loading. This will allow appliances to dry out and prevent the growth of mold.
