Transportation of plants at a close distance or another city
You should not transport flowers in the trunk of a car, as well as on the roof of the car. A small
and stuffy trunk inside the car will destroy the flowers, because they will not receive oxygen. The
roof rack of a car is also not suitable for transportation, since it will not be possible to securely
fix the plant without damage. With such transportation, the earth will fall out of the pots. In
addition, flowers can suffer severe heat stroke from the sun or damage from wind and dust.
To deliver flowers around the city, it is better to use a truck, the van of which is equipped with
special fastening straps and other means. It is good if there are windows in the body that can be
used for ventilation.
When moving far and moving to another city, the ideal option would be a refrigerator that
maintains the required temperature throughout the trip.
Of course, for many, ordering a separate flower car for a standard office or apartment move is a
hardly feasible option. Therefore, when loading, follow the following rules:
Of all things, install the plants in the van last;
Arrange large specimens first, then small ones, and finally “problem” plants that require special
Make sure that there are no heavy objects nearby that, when moving the machine, could fall and
damage the flowers;
Securely fix the cargo so that it does not move during transportation;
When moving long distances, including moving to another city, periodically open the van to let
the flowers breathe (if there are no windows).
The company’s fleet contains dozens of different variants of trucks. The manager of the
company will definitely select the transport that is suitable for the delivery of indoor plants.
When the plants are delivered to the new location, immediately unpack the boxes. Remove the
wrapper, remove paper, tape and other auxiliary packaging items. Clean the flowers of damaged
branches and leaves. Pour warm water, then arrange in place.
When watering, use exactly warm water, as it will quickly equalize the temperature of the plants
and with the temperature in the room. According to research, flowers recover well after a
stressful move when watered at 75-85 degrees above zero.
How to transport flowers when it is cold outside
When transporting in cold weather, place two small plastic bottles of hot water in the box
between the pots. Gaps are filled with paper or cloth. Warm bottles will keep your plants warm.
Flowers must be transported in a fully closed container. If the plant does not fit, then cover with a
bag or pack it entirely in a bag. Carefully twist the branches of large specimens, fix with pegs
and wrap with insulating material.
