Moving a wine cellar across the country Asap

#1 Post by JFPelletier » June 27th, 2020, 2:33 pm

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?

Thanks!

JF

There are a number of prior threads on this topic. You might search for "move," though that will probably have a lot of hits. Or try "shipping."

Is it palletized and ready to go? If so I'm sure you can find a trucking company like Garrison that has refrigerated trucks (or at least used to) to pick it up and drop it off.

If it’s not ready to go, I think Domaine wine storage will come and pack it up and transport it properly and insured.

Here's a recent thread ... viewtopic.php?f=1&t=167091

It's been many years, but I've used Western twice. Not cheap, but no issues either.

I've moved wine from VT to CA - one nuance: the roads at the origin. Find out what kind of truck the shipping company will be using, and if it can access the roads there. A lot of the rural parts of the state have seasonal roads, or small trucks only types of roads. For my move they had to put the load on a small truck that went up to our house, and then reload everything to the actual long haul truck that would make the cross country drive, a few miles away.

If you are in a Vermont city, none of that may matter, but there a lot of small dirt roads too.

Ours was a whole house move, so did everything in October, when things tend to be cool but not yet cold nationally.

I’ve also used Western with a good experience.

A friend of mine is moving wine from Alaska to Denver. Any info on a trucking company that moves that distance? It's over 3000 miles.
This space for rent.

I’d contact vine vault. For the right price I’m sure they’d discuss.
