I was just wondering the same thing because we are moving from Det. to Las Vegas. I think that I will just set it all out this 4th of July weekend and hope it goes. I may even have to whip up a few new shots or drinks. I have a lot of Kahlua and Baileys and such. I don't want to take that stuff with me.

Default yes indeed

I'd take it and transport as you mentioned. We always have lots of liqour (for parties). We've done it plenty of times -- opened alcohol in the trunks of cars or trucks from NJ to wherever. Some of the stuff is expensive and some of the bottles are large. We always use boxes from the liquor store too, the ones with separate compartments and cool designs. Good luck on your move!

I moved my fully stocked bar--had a local liquor store save boxes for me and packed it all up in those, then put it on some packing blankets in the truck and it was fine.

I more or less depleted my modest wine collection prior to moving. With the collection I've amassed since then, I'd have to have a company that specializes in moving wine come in, pack it, move it in a climate controlled truck, and unpack it to exactly the same slots in the wine cabinets. (It's all bar coded to correspond to a computerized inventory.) The company that insures it would void coverage otherwise.

I live in Arizona.

I'm gonna tell you now, that you could be arrested for DUI here if it's an open container. It's illegal to have an open container now here. I know a friend of mine who has to turn herself in every weekend, to jail, because of an open container they found in her car when they pulled her over. She has to do that every weekend for 4 months!! That sucks!!!

So, please, don't have an open container. Box it up and when you move in, let it chill (get cold for a while), before you open them up and start drinking them...Other than that, I think after they got cool in a few hours, it would be a good idea to have a little party afterwards....

Good luck....

Yeah, the wine you should drink up or give away, seriously doubt it would survive the trip. Probably you would be technically breaking at least one law in at least one state as you drive through with previously-opened spirits, but if they are packed away deep in the "box" of the truck I doubt anyone will bother you about it.

Liquor store boxes is a good idea. They tend to be a good source for free moving boxes anyway.
