Will Moving Companies Move Liquor? - Moving and Storage

Are you in the process of moving to a new home or apartment? Do you happen to have a stash of aged whiskey or imported rum that you don’t want to move by yourself? Will moving companies move liquor for you? Well, moving liquor is not an item specifically listed on most moving company’s service descriptions. But you may be able to find a moving company that is willing to move alcoholic beverages.

Federal Law states that moving companies are prohibited from transporting alcoholic beverages. This is partly due to the fact that alcoholic liquids are highly flammable and can cause excessive damage.

Will Moving Companies Move Liquor?

However, after speaking to several moving companies in the area, the majority said that they would move alcoholic beverages as long as they are already boxed up. Moving companies are not allowed to open up boxes. Make sure the bottles are packed securely and safely though. If the bottles happen to break, the moving company may or may not report you to the authorities depending on how strict they are. In more extreme cases, the liquids from the broken bottles can cause a fire. Furthermore, another company that I contacted stated that if the bottles were not packed they would simply pack the bottles for an additional charge.

After getting in touch with several moving companies in my area, I highly recommend getting in contact with the moving company you are using to find out if they will move alcoholic beverages for you, as company policy may vary from company to company.
