Do you purchase wine from Napa or Sonoma Wineries? In all likelihood, the answer to that question is – ‘Yes’.
Do you have those packages of wine being shipped via FedEx or UPS to your storage facility or home on a continual basis? And of those shipments coming in via common carrier to your home or facility, how much are you paying? And are they temperature-controlled? In all likelihood, no.
The Wine Mover has designed a program, SmartShip Solutions, to handle wine purchases from Napa and Sonoma wineries, that provide significant savings for wine consumers while utilizing best-in-class shipping methods via temperature controlled vehicles from our door to your storage facility’s door. Don’t store your wine at a facility? Not a problem, with our will-call pickup option you can ship your wine directly to that facility and pick up there, or arrange for delivery to your home with your participating local facility.
The Wine Mover SmartShip Solutions program will give clients the ability to consolidate and ship all of these purchases with door-to-door temperature-controlled shipment to their participating storage facility—all at a fraction of the cost vs common carrier.
SmartShip Solutions Is
- Affordable: The Wine Mover shipping rates are $30-50 per piece, providing customers an average savings of over 60% vs the recommended 2-day expedited service
- Temperature-Controlled, Door-to-Door: We provide door-to-door, temperature-controlled shipments at a fraction of the cost of common carriers, preserving the quality of each bottle we ship.
- Safe: Here at The Wine Mover, we ship wine and only wine, all day every day, which means we understand how it’s supposed to be transported. Your shipments arrive at your storage facility intact, at ideal temperatures, palletized and shrink-wrapped.
- Eco-Friendly: Because our shipments are temperature-controlled from door-to-door we eliminate the need for styrofoam-filled boxes, preserving natural resources and avoiding toxic waste. In addition, this removal of styrofoam provides 40% more space in your storage locker, again, saving you money.
