Unfortunately, the official answer to this is no. Carriers are not licensed to carry household items, only vehicles, so any items in a vehicle would need to be removed prior to the vehicle being loaded onto the transport truck.
With that said, most carriers let their customers put items in their vehicle anyway, as long as they adhere to certain restrictions. For starters, most carriers will require that you limit your items to small items weighing less than 100 pounds total. Weight plays a large role in your price, and loading a vehicle with heavy items can cause problems down the road.
They will likely also make you put it in the trunk, thus adhering to the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. Since your items will be uninsured during transport, as they aren’t technically allowed to be there, we recommend that if you have to move any items limit them to light things that cannot easily break, such as blankets, pillows or clothes, and if you can put them in a box or suitcase that can fit in your trunk, that would be even better.
