Tips on Moving House Plants
Moving companies will transport house plants but will not guarantee their survival. I.C.C. regulations prohibit a driver from loading plants in a van if traveling more than 150 miles or longer than 24 hours. Also, a driver may refuse to load plants if there is evidence of insect infestation which may infest the van.
If you are moving to another state, you may wish to call the appropriate agricultural agency in that state, since there are some states that prohibit entry to some or all plants.
When transporting plants in your car, it is best to place them on the car seat. Never put them in the trunk of your car, since any extreme temperature changes can be disastrous.
Water plants a day before leaving, and securely place them in a cardboard box. Line the box with a plastic trash bag, and use newspaper around the pot to prevent shifting. Do not overwater the plants before leaving, since you can always find water at a rest stop.
