Transporting wine safely during your move can be a challenge. Depending on the value of your wine and hard liquor, you might not want to move it at all. However, if you are a devoted wine enthusiast with a valuable collection, then you need to take a number of steps to move your wine safely and without destroying your moving budget.

First, get an estimate of the value of your wine and liquor collection. A local wine shop can appraise your collection for a nominal fee. Getting the appraisal is important for multiple reasons. The value of your collection will determine whether you want to keep it as well as how much to invest in moving it. Also, this appraisal is important for insurance companies if something terrible happens to your collection during the move.

Once you have decided whether to keep your wine, consider who should move your valued collection. Some professional movers will not handle wine or other liquor because technically they are perishable goods. Also, if you have a fairly small collection you are probably better off trying to transport it on your own. You will need to check local laws in your
