Why is it too story based?

Too story based because teleportation is not a real-world thing so without more info about your world, it would be impossible to say what teleportation can do. Weirdly, a question that is “too story based” is often fixed by giving MORE world-specific info, not less. You need to tell us how teleportation works... how fast, what happens at transition, what happens to the displaced matter at the arrival point, etc. Within that framework, the question becomes answerable. Right now, that data is all in your head, and we haven’t read your story. :-)
