As more and more downsizing baby boomers relocate from the Midwest and Northeast to warmer climates like Florida and the Carolinas, they need to ensure that moving their valuable art, wine and heirloom pieces are handled properly. Going from cooler climates to warmer weather can harm wine collections and valuable art unless they are moved in a climate-controlled truck. Here are 5 benefits of a climate-controlled truck.

  1. Constant Temperature - In a climate-controlled truck the temperature can be set at s specific setting and, during the entire trip, that temperature is maintained. Even when the truck is sitting still, the temperature remains the same. Changes in temperature is the number one cause for damage to fine wine and valuable artwork.
  2. Dedicated Load - Most climate-controlled trucks will go from door-to-door without stopping, ensuring less potential for damage to the contents with stops and opening and closing of the truck doors.
  3. Professionally Staffed - Any moving service company which utilizes climate- controlled trucks is a company which knows the value of the items they are transporting. Hiring a moving and storage company that offers climate- controlled trucks will have professionally trained staff who know how to properly load, transport and, unload the homeowners’ valuable wine, art and heirlooms.
  4. Dedicated Drivers - Companies who offer climate-controlled trucks will dedicate the drivers for the entire trip, meaning they will not utilize “3 rd party” labor for unloading. Many cheaper moving and storage companies rely on picking up temporary labor for lowering transportation costs and offering cheaper pricing. This is not the case with companies utilizing climate-controlled trucks…the same staff that loads will stay with the load and unload at the new home.
  5. Peace Of Mind - A climate-controlled truck is only handling expensive, irreplaceable items and the company and staff know this. Homeowners who hire climate-controlled truck companies will have total peace of mind that their items will arrive at their new home, with no problems or damage.
