Moving 1100 miles from Texas to West Virginia. Will be renting a uhaul box truck moving in one trip. Drive company car so no vehicle until I arrive there. Only worry is gear. Have 10 string instruments. Hard cases for all but 3. Range of quality up to $2500. PT Pro Fully loaded (soft case) PT Classic 2 Fully loaded (hard case) Two amps Weather wise, its going to be hot leaving Texas (assumption) heading North, so they will be in the back of a Uhaul in above average temperature throughout day. Drive to Nashville or further should be out of heat by nights end so leaving them that night in uhaul (3 will be brought inside), not so much a worry. Next day driving early be there by noon-2. Main concern is day one getting out of Texas and them being in the back baking. I plan on going to GC to get guitar boxes, if they'll give them to me, to put the cases in. Or try other guitar shops for them. Not taking a bed to lay them on* Questions: Do I stand the boxes upright and maybe tie them together, not overly tight, just enough to keep them together, and put an egg crate/comforter underneath them to absorb bounce? Or lay them down and stack them? I also have capability to put boxed guitars in cases on a pallet and wrap them together with packing wrap. Amps just put in a box and package tightly I assume? Pedalboard PT pro; soft case scares me a bit but I've thought about placing towels inside the soft case to absorb as much as it could; then laying it on top of something. Should I dismantle the board and box up the pedals? Wrapped individually? (Have most original boxes). How much damage if any will come to the guitars in the back of a Uhaul for one day? Would you potentially spend $5-700 more and use a pod system for everything other than gear. Then rent a suburban and drive it up separate? Advice on how YOU would go about this would be appreciated.
