Whether you’re planning a brief, local move, or a long-distance move, chances are you probably have some hazardous materials at home. Of course, we all understand that the garage generally houses a lot of materials that we don’t want inside of our homes but did you know that even nail polish remover is considered a hazardous material not suitable for transport?

Licensed and insured for your peace-of-mind.

In order to obtain our California Public Utilities permit, we had to demonstrate a higher-than-average understanding of many laws. One such law restricts motor carriers without a hazardous materials endorsement from transporting hazardous materials. As mentioned above, even nail polish remover is unsuitable for transport in your moving truck! This is where having a licensed and insured moving company, like Cheap Movers Los Angeles, really becomes of great value and safety.
