It may seem like common sense, but there are some items that should not be included when you pack and move. The Golden Rule is, if the item is flammable, combustible or explosive it should not be included in your shipment.
- House paints
- Open containers of liquid
- Propane tanks or cans
- Gas or oils
- Open alcohol containers
- Open non-sealed food containers
- Fire extinguishers
- Welding gas
- Disinfectant cleaners (especially those that contain bleach or ammonia)
- Perishable foods (unless the move meets strict guidelines – please check with your carrier about these to see if your move meets the guidelines)

Air Van Lines is a member of AMSA, we are a certified PRO Mover and Air Van Moving’s very own Steve Galvagno sits on the board of the American Moving & Storage Association, (AMSA).
What is AMSA?
American Moving & Storage Association, the national trade association for the professional moving industry. Based in the Washington, D.C., area, AMSA’s mission is to represent the interest of the domestic and international moving and storage industry and to help the customers it serves.
What is a PRO Mover?
In 2009, AMSA launched a new consumer protection and certification program called ProMover. This initiative is designed to fight imposters, known within the industry as “rogue operators,” like never before by giving consumers an easy way to separate reputable, professional movers from con artists out to make a quick buck at their expense.
The ProMover program takes the worry and the hassle out of moving by helping consumers identify quality professional movers who subscribe to our goals and by providing them with information and assistance with everything from finding a mover, to getting an estimate and packing tips, to understanding valuation and insurance.

Tonight the BIG DANCE comes to an end with the FINAL game between Louisville and Michigan. Many of you follow the NCAA Basketball games and maybe even participate in some competitive fun with friends and family in the form of “bracketology.“
What you might not know is that at Air Van Moving we have been participating in our own form of March Madness. Air Van team members have been competing with each other in timed events to produce sales for their division. The competition has been fierce and the program has been a slam dunk!
Our team enjoyed Crazy Hat Day in the midst of their March Madness challenge!
