Moving a wine cellar across the country Asap

Hi everyone,

I need to move about 300 bottles of collectible wines across country from VT to Los Angeles asap. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Any recommendations for temperature controlled movers that specialize in it?

CellarPro has the best customer service. Once a unit failed and they shipped me a replacement the next day. Their warranty coverage (5 years) is the best. I have 2 units and beside this adventure 7+ years ago. Everything has been working great since. Highly recommended.
