Moving Tip: If you’re moving locally in San Jose you don’t need a special wine box to pack wine when moving a short distance, just use a book box. The special boxes are expensive.
Moving tip: We do recommend special boxes if you are moving cross country. Those boxes have Styrofoam inserts to help protect against temperature changes when traveling cross country.Steps for Packing Wine for Moving :
- Place crumbled paper on the bottom of a book box
- Wrap each bottle in paper and lay them down in the box. The paper will help to keep them cool and create padding so the bottles do not break.
- Leave a couple inches at the top of the box for more paper and seal your box.
- Label the box on the top and sides “wine” so you can locate them easily at the new house.
Bonus moving tip: If you do not plan on unpacking the wine right away simply place the box(es) in a cool spot and they will be fine until you get around to unpacking.
