Packing your liquor cabinet is a delicate task that requires precision and a careful attention to detail. Your bottles of wine and liquor can be extremely expensive, so it’s important that you take the time to pack your cabinet properly to avoid damaging any precious bottles in your collection.
At Matco Moving Solutions, we make sure your valuables are properly packed and stored in controlled temperatures to maintain their proper condition. Here is a list of things that need to be done in order to successfully pack up and move your liquor cabinet.
Take an inventory of your bottles
Before moving any item, it’s always good to take an inventory of everything you have to move. Liquor bottles are heavy and can be difficult to transport. Take note of all the bottles you want to keep and consider trying to give the others away to family and friends before your move.
Have the right supplies
When it comes to wine, most moving companies will have specialty boxes you can use that will make the transport of your bottles far easier. Bottle sizes vary, so make sure that you get the correct ones that correspond to the bottles you have. Also be sure to have an abundance of packing tape and wrapping paper.
Each bottle should be individually wrapped
Even if you are planning to store these bottles in boxes once they make it onto the truck, it’s a good idea to wrap each bottle individually as an extra precaution throughout the course of the move. If you are planning to move bottles that have been previously opened, be sure to properly seal them before wrapping and moving them onto the truck.
Secure the base of each box
Even if you’ve purchased specialized boxes for your bottles, the base of the box can be flimsy and unstable. Make sure you secure the box and that it’s taped at all the openings. As an added precaution, add packing paper until you can no longer hear any bottles clanging together when you load them onto the truck.
