Helpful Hints When Moving Household Goods

When moving long distance, not everything can be packed on the moving truck. In most cases Cento Family Moving & Storage cannot transport perishable items, including produce, plants, frozen or refrigerated foods and open or half-used food containers. Exceptions may be made if your move is less than 150 miles and items will be delivered within 24 hours of loading with no in-transit servicing. These exceptions are made at the agent’s discretion and require food to be properly packed.

Additionally, many common household items are not safe for transport under any circumstances. For the safety of your family, Cento Family Moving & Storage movers and others on the road, we cannot transport hazardous items, including explosives, flammable gases and toxic substances.
