Non-transportable Items

Wine collections can represent a sizable investment. You should first calculate the total value of the collection. Once that is complete, you can decide whether to move your wine in a traditional moving van or on a climate-controlled vehicle. A full service moving company will be able to guide you in this decision.

Getting it there!

If you are moving your wine collection in the summer or winter months, where temperatures can be extreme, you may want to consider requesting an estimate for moving the wine collection on a climate-controlled van line. Speak with the professional moving estimator who comes to your home about availability and cost.

Understand the value of your wine

High-value wine collections should have a professional appraisal completed prior to shipping. The best way to locate an appraiser is to contact a local, fine-wine distributor or shop.

If you have a small wine collection, it is recommended that you move the wine in your car. This will allow you to control the temperature.

Packing

Special care should be taken to protect the wine when packing. Professional movers are qualified to correctly pack the wine bottles. If you are packing the wine yourself, you may want to consider obtaining wine-packing boxes used to transport wine by the case on commercial airlines. These are made of Styrofoam or corrugated cardboard and protect the bottles well. You can purchase them at stores that sell wine in your area.

  • Remember to pack the wine on its side, as it would be stored in your home.
  • Even if extreme care has been used in packing and moving, wine bottle shock may occur. The wine will shake within the bottle as it is moved. If opened too soon, a loss of flavor may result. Allow the bottles to rest for 7 days prior to opening.
