Moving soon and wondering what to do with your extra wine and liquor? Don’t fret – there are ways to transport wine and liquor safely. If you’re not a connoisseur of liquors and expensive wines, and you only have a few bottles left to finish before your move, it’s probably not worth packing them and paying extra. But if you have a collection you’ve treasured for years, there are some important tips you need to know to keep your wine and liquor at its best quality. At Fort Dearborn Relocation, we want your move be as seamless as possible. Our DeKalb moving company has compiled a list of tips to help you successfully move your delicate liquor bottles:
- Pack well in a divided wine or liquor box: You can find liquor boxes free at many stores, restaurants, and clubs when they unload their inventories. Before packing your bottles, wrap them securely in packing paper and pad the bottom of the box with cardboard for support. Tape well!
- Wine is tricky – watch the temperature: Wine doesn’t respond well to sudden movement and changes in temperature. Most types of wine should stay around 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have expensive wine to move, choosing a moving company with temperature-controlled trucks is worth it.
- Let your wine settle: When you arrive at your new home and unpack, it’s only natural to want to celebrate! If you brought liquor, you can drink it right away. But wine requires at least two weeks to settle after drastic change, or it could lose its taste and quality. Once you’re settled in, open the wine to celebrate with your new neighbors.
