Dangerous Goods

You may be surprised to learn that some seemingly harmless goods can be dangerous on board an aircraft. Air travel is one of the safest means of transportation. Help keep it safe by observing some basic rules. An aircraft is not an automobile. In flight, variations in temperature and air pressure can cause some items to leak or ignite. Think Before you pack! 

HOVERBOARDS are banned from inclusion in ALL domestic and international household goods shipments. Between December of last year and February 2016, more than 50 hover board-related fires have been reported in the U.S., causing an estimated $2 million worth of damage*. Placing a potentially flammable hazard into the confined space of a plane, truck, or sea container could have catastrophic consequences.

Therefore, ALLRIGHT MOVING & STORAGE will strictly enforce this policy for all modes of transport globally.

MATCHES, LIGHTERS are forbidden in baggage because they may ignite by friction.


FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS such as fuel, paints, solvents, adhesives, and flammable gases such as lighter refills and camping gas might leak and cause a fire.    

FIREWORKS such as signal flares and other explosives might detonate because of their sensitive nature.    


HOUSEHOLD CHEMICAL ITEMS such as bleaches, drain cleaners, aerosols, mercury and solvents contain dangerous chemicals which can cause toxic fumes and corrosion.

Remember that this is not a complete list of hazardous materials.
Carrying dangerous goods aboard an aircraft is an offence and may be subject to penalty.
