Moving with Plants

Most movers will not take your plants in the moving van, as there is little chance they will survive. There are no temperature controls in a moving van; therefore temperature changes may be extreme. In addition, the plants will not be watered, or receive any sunlight, from the time they leave until the time they arrive. Should a mover allow your plants to be loaded with the rest of your belongings – it will be at your own risk. The following tips may be helpful in preparing your plants for transport.

Some cities, especially in the US or overseas, may have strict restrictions on plants and plant material. Check with the local Department of Agriculture for any restrictions or requirements.
