Wine has become a prosperous commodity for investors and wine connoisseurs. In fact, the market size is projected to reach 444.93 billion by 2027.
But starting a wine collection is not as easy as it may sound. A wine collection requires a lot of experience and accurate transportation to and from cellars. Thankfully, an experienced wine mover like Xpeditr can help you safely ship and store your best wines. Keep reading to learn more about our wine moving services.
1. We offer wine insurance for your collection
Wine insurance is not required during wine moving. However, wine is very delicate, and having protection ensures you’re covered. Additionally, your wine collection has probably taken decades to perfect. The last thing you want is years of hard work ruined in transit. That’s why Xpeditr offers full-coverage insurance to its clients. This entails an experienced Emergency Team Response, that will work solely for you to ensure the safety and preservation of your wine.
2. Long and short term storage
Xpeditr isn’t solely a wine mover. We also specialize in wine storage for short or long-term leases. For wineries that need long-term storage, we can find you a facility close to your clientele. Therefore, you don’t have to choose between quality storage and access to your best wine. Rest assured your wine will be properly stored with extra safety precautions in place. For starters, we have implemented an ERP (Emergency Response Plan) for natural disasters. These plans cover floods, fires, and power outages. We also do routine inspections to protect you from future weather incidents. Our commercial wine storage facilities are all guaranteed to stay at 56 degrees, so you never have to worry about dull or lackluster wine.
3. Temperature controlled door-to-door service
The interior of moving trucks can reach upwards of 100 degrees, with little to no ventilation. The humidity in these trucks can also reach high points. This is why it’s important to hire a professional wine mover. Before 2005, many wine collectors would use regular moving trucks to ship their collections. This resulted in the loss of precious wine and valuable collections. At Xpeditr, we offer temperature-controlled door-to-door moving services. This means you don’t have to worry about the quality of your wine declining during or after a move. A safe move is always guaranteed to ensure your wines don’t experience shock or temperate fluctuations.
4. We handle all customs and import processes
If you’re an experienced wine collector, then you already know how hard it can be to transport wine. That’s why it’s better to leave it to the professionals. You’ll save time on paperwork, shipping, and packaging. This is because Xpeditr will handle all of the FDA documentation for international shipping. This step is important because most countries have very strict laws when it comes to moving alcohol.
For example, under the U.S. Customs and Border Protection laws, wine is not seen as a household good. Therefore, a personal wine collection is not able to pass duty-free. In addition, some states have their regulations. Therefore, you might run into even more trouble depending on your destination. In fact, some wine collectors have had their collections confiscated because of these complex laws.
This is why wine collectors end up getting discouraged during the process. Luckily, when you hire Xpeditr, you’ll have a hassle-free experience when importing wine over the border. We also offer customs brokerage for international shipments entering the U.S., Hong Kong, Canada, the U.K., Europe and Australia.
5. We are the most trusted wine mover
In the past 15 years, Xpeditr has perfected its wine-moving techniques through trial and error. We have also built an amazing team of highly qualified and enthusiastic workers. Overall, we have a great group of logistic experts, warehouse technicians, and the best sommeliers. We have moved wine collections with 10,000 plus bottles of the most precious wine. From small collections to large scale collections, Xpeditr knows how to properly move the best wines.
We have access to the best technology and tracking services for wine moving. Our tracking services account for all your wine before and after the move. This fully transparent service is what has attracted so many clients to us over the past 15 years, and we hope you can be the next wine collector that we can assist.
6. Client confidentiality for all
It’s no secret that some businesses sell their own clients’ information for profit. Here at Xpeditr, we believe in private and confidential ventures. This is of the utmost importance because our movers are entering your home. However, you can trust Xpeditr to keep your personal information on a need-to-know basis.
We also have regular meetings which discuss the rights and regulations of client information. All our employees are thoroughly informed on what is and isn’t acceptable when it comes to client confidentiality.
We do have an “Our Clients” page on our website. However, this page only has vague, general information about our clients. We do not release the names, ages, or locations of our clients without their permission.
7. Chubb security approved
Whether it’s a commercial or personal vehicle, an accident can happen at any time. And here at Xpeditr, we take these risks very seriously. Chubb Fire & Security Group is an organization created to evaluate the safety of thousands of businesses all across the world. They provide industry-leading fire safety tips and burglary precautions. This industry-leading business has approved us for having above-average safety precautions. Let these preventative measures express to you our sincere desire to protect your wine at all costs.
8. The best transport and cybersecurity
As of today, there are bottles of wine worth half a million dollars. Some of these wines date back to the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Therefore, not only are they precious heirlooms, but they also have historical value and context. And because of this fact, wine collectors are susceptible to theft.
We have installed the best protection assessments for online and offline requests. For starters, we work closely with military personnel to determine the safest routes for shipping. We also do a threat assessment for future complications, such as bad weather and faulty terrain. This step ensures your wine arrives on the scheduled delivery day with no complications.
Online, we also have the best cybersecurity programs designed to keep your personal information safe from hackers. In the event that a breach is detected, we take every possible precaution to ensure no client data is stolen.
9. Licensed and trusted drivers
At Xpeditr, all of our drivers are required to pass a driving test and background check. All of our drivers are also properly trained to handle precious cargo. We also implement a hands-on approach during their training. Therefore, all our drivers know how to drive in bad conditions and intense traffic.
