Transporting haraam items

Q: I work in the removal service industry which is to transport people’s personal belonging from their old residents to their new home. Majority of the time is just boxes and clothes etc. Sometimes I do stomp upon alcohol that they may take with them in 1 of the boxes. What is the ruling on this? Is my money haraam?

A: You may transport all items of the house besides things that are haraam e.g. alcohol, haraam meat, idols, etc. You should excuse yourself from transporting haraam items.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
